You gloss over the poorer kids who can afford nether.

I didnt gloss over anything. I responded to a specific poster who made a specific point. Ive touched on the poor kids already in this thread.
Basically, if you think they should get free lunch, AND get to choose how much and what they want to eat, you are advocating entitlement. Ever heard of the phrase beggars cant be choosers? Perhaps they should be thankful that they get food, FOR FREE, and not complaining about not getting what they want.
If the whole lunch is eaten, it is plenty. The issue comes in because kids dont eat the whole lunch. They eat the main dish, and toss out the fruit/veggies. Too bad, so sad. If you're that hungry, you'll eat it.
