I was never forced to eat anything at school, and my kids take what they want, only in grade one do they limit snacks and I would never allow them to tell them what to eat.. What I don't understand is why everyone is taking it in the US? Its not like that here. Even the free meals provided are sandwhiches alot like that and soup and muffins. Juice or milk. They had pancakes in the morning too.

Isnt this sort of illegal? Isnt there a law about talking with minors without parents consent? Wouldnt they have to call the parents before informing a 4 yo that their lunch isnt healthy enough? I mean, I assume the person forcing nuggets on the child is some sort of authority..


In our local schools, the county idiots voted that children would NOT be able to bring lunches home from school, and that they would all be required to eat the lunch provided for them. Talk about control. I would never submit to that. They came up with a ton of reasons why children should not bring lunch from home. I'm just amazed by some of these crazy helicopter parents who think letting their child walk a block to school could end in some fatal disaster. I won't participate in the insanity. The public schools of today, are nothing like they were when I was growing up. I consider my education back then to be far superior to what children are getting now.

They are truly dumb-ing down these children, suffocating them, and treating them as if they are fragile cargo that must be protected from every single thing. Kids cannot even be kids anymore.

This is one of the scariest articles I've read. Nearly as scary as the assault on Religion.

I would not allow anyone to vote on what my kids eat. That is not democracy. Even a majority cannot limit the soveriegn rights of a minority. If a majority want to harm themselves and live with reduced rights, they cannot constitutionally take any of my rights. I can stick out my tongue at them and tell them to grow up. Dont ever stand for it.

I don't know, all those threads about unarmed people being shot and killed by police, some with children, are a little alarming. This is just the next step.

And where are the crowds saying NO. Not OWS. Just go to their offices and set them straight. Repeatedly, with larger crowds if needed and make huge articles in the paper. Communities have to work to educate the community and create really loud public voices.

The banana is good, the potato chips and apple juice are not the greatest. The turkey meat is deli(loaded with sodium and preservatives), white bread and cheese, is not the best for you. If it was roasted sliced turkey and wheat bread than that is a way better choice and would taste way better too.

What kids eat these days and what almost every single american eats is only hurting themselves. I don't eat perfectly, but pretty darn good and take that extra step to avoid foods that are bad and everyone should be educated on the topic. That's what everyone should be taught.

Its ironic. While its illegal to take steroids such as testosterone to better your well being, eating junk and fast food everyday for the rest of your life is not regulated. I know people that eat it everyday and tell them, they just don't listen.

Sodium is the silent killer that everyone should take caution of and track how much you do consume. For example, that Turkey Sandwich alone.

Broken down. 2 Slices of white, 1 slice of American, and 4 oz of Deli Turkey

Cals 340
Fat 9 g
Cholesterol 55 mg
Sodium 1427 mg
Carbs 33 g
Fiber 2 g
Protein 24 g
Sugars 3 g

Just that turkey sandwich alone, is 1400/2400mg of sodium of the recommended daily value.

I think it would be ok if a kid constantly had horrible lunch's, lets say always reheated fries and coke, then something could be done...at least teacher should have the right to address to parent about it.

That lunch was decent enough, much better than chicken nuggets!

They're shouldn't be inscribed laws for situations like that, Michelle Obama is out of her mind if she thinks people will like excessive control like that. She might think it's for the greater good, but this is past common sense and she's too far gone to see it.

This is too extreme left even for the likes of me.

How ridiculous.

The government is too big.

We need to reign in their power.

They have too much say, they have too many programs, they reach too far. We need to get rid of some of these ridiculous programs , cut them, save the money, use it for something else.

Just yet another example of the ridiculousness that big brother imposes on us.

But processed meat as been in generations of lunches now! It's not because sodium nitrite is about the worst cancerous additive that we shouldn't eat it everyday for lunch?

I stopped eating cold cuts, well at least buying it. I still eat because a lot of people like it on pizza but if I can choose I take without or with chicken, beef.

Even so, eat better is a great ideology but forcing it on children and blaming parents is not the first step to greatness.

If only the same people that deals with mosanto, corrupt pharmaceutical companies, chemtrails, nonrenewable energy and endless wars would stop, maybe they could "try" to shove it up our mouths and say that the people should eat better

Now, it's just hypocrite, misplaced and way over their heads.

If I was living in the USA, I would strongly consider home schooling.

I love the hypocrisy of this article.




We send out kids to be educated


So that doesn't include education about nutrition?

Many private schools are also rigid about what the parents send for lunch. While many lunches are healthy, I don't get what is wrong with a turkey and cheese and a banana. Just take away the chips.

Sounds like an overzealous inspector.

And before everyone hops on the bandwagon and grabs their pitchforks, this is one incident at one school out of 40k.


Yes. That includes education about nutrition. It DOESN'T mean FORCING a child to eat comething that the parents themselves didn't pack for them.

There's a big difference between telling a child what is healthy and forcing it into their system where, as another poster pointed out, they could be allergic to the ingredienats. I highly doubt that the people who did this looked at the childs medical questionaire that the parent had to fill out when the child was enrolled.

And you can downplay it by saying it was only one child from one school out of 40k, but if one child gets sick and dies because of something like THIS, it's one child too many.

I agree, forcing it on children and blaming parents are not the answer. I think educating the parents will have a trickle down effect with the children. I was lucky enough to educate myself young before it was to late and developed bad habits later on in life.
