heh i know the answer, my question was , why dont people think of that question, they just say oh well its the presidents kid, they should eat well, what everyone forgets, is the president and his families , are american citizens first(well supposed to be heh), just like the rest of us, everyone in the government should have same healthcare, same food, same taxes ect ect but they are all treated like royalty.


Right you are. The whole idea of a democratic republic is that the people "rule themselves".

So much for that idea, huh?

These lunches don't sound bad. And portion control is essential to being healthy. We eat extra large portions as Americans, cause we think eating till you pop is right. The sad thing is our kids are so used to eating junk and sugar they cant handle a decent meal. I mean really people are complaining that schools are feeding their kids healthier? Oh dear, lets just go buy crud and fill them up till they puke with it. An unhealthy lifestyle needs time to adjust to the new healthy items. So now Ms Obama is terrible for not shoving Little Debbie cakes and grease into their unhealthy butts?
Evil Obamas and their SPINACH!


hamburgers... american tacos.... sloppy joes.... corndogs???? Healthy?

I see the small portions of veggies and fruit on the side (that mostly end up in the trash anyways so they never gave too much)
The teeny bit of veggies thrown away on the side don't make up for the consumed ball of grease given for the entrees ....

I really enjoyed the salad bar when I attended school.... of course they were unkept and lacking in some categories but overall better then all the greasy crap most people stood in line for

What you dont get is that SCHOOLS DO NOT HAVE TO CATER TO PARENTS.


Who should they cater too, the parents and nation are their employers, they are but employees, and they serve parents and those children.


Really? So whatever parents want, schools should provide?


Depends... do these said teachers want a job? It's the parents CHOICE for the kid to attend the school....

You have heard of PTA? Parent Teacher Conferences... right? Where parents can speak their concerns for their children's welfare at said schools...

Think about it like a business...

if your supply isn't meeting the demand you will soon be out of business...

The kids here... Illinois, land of testing how far you can push someone without them freaking out... at the high school near us did a protest due to the lunches. 3 grapes and some fruit and a cheese sandwich just wasnt cutting it. A slice of gross pizza and a fruit salad that was hardly anything. Our bodies actualy require some fats and fuel.. go figure. We starve their bodies and brains and then wonder why we cant pull any excellence out of them.

Kids are HUGE these days. Im 5'4".... one of my own kids is a nephilim. LOL! almost 19 she is now 5'11. The almost 14 yr old is taller than me now at 5'5". Tall ...darned near adult looking in gradeschool these days. They need some food as many of them only get a rounded meal when provided by school. In the summer we do a volunteer thing that feeds kids in the park.. as in open to all kids is a lunch in the summer time when school is out. Parents were walking their kids t the park to let them eat.. and not eating any food themselves. We started wondering if we should rename it and invite some of the parents too. Lot of poverty around here. Parents may be losers, working, simply poor.. whatever. Their kids get a darned good meal... this is how I learned that most kids only get a chance for a balanced meal at school.. for a plethora of reasons. Now they want to cut it back so far theyre starving the kids.


Michelle et al need to come hang with the little people and maybe see REAL issues with their own eyes.

Do you honestly think that whatever parents suggest or complain about at PTA meetings is caved to? Not at all, friend.

I have been a teacher. It is IMPOSSIBLE to give all paretns what they want. Period. And, while a lot of people may not like to hear it, what parents want isnt always what is best for kids-and in the end, isnt that what school is all about? What is best for THE KIDS?

The portion size though.

don't over look it.

5 year olds and 17 eyar old highschool students don't eat the same amount of food....But that is what is being served.

For the same price...

it's about saving money and giving them less, while trying to make people it's for the right reasons.

Looks like you were wrong. It was worth her investment. Now maybe more young people will be fit for service when and if they decide to join. We were losing fighting men, young people already health risks and too fat to serve.

Thousands of sixth graders who participated in a school-based health program were less obese by eighth grade than a group of similar children who did not, according to a new study done for the National Institutes of Health.

Does the government know what is best for your children more then you do? Progressives should also ask these hard questions to themselves.


Pretty soon they will be making not only education choices for your family but also health choices. Why let outsiders run your household are you not smart enough to make good choices?



If people want TPTB to make all the choices for them so be it but don't make it for everyone just the people who are weak and beg for it.

Um did you read the OP? The parents quickly rushed out and bought their kids.... lunchables?

Not only is it incredibly worse for the kids but it certainly won't fill them either to fix this "problem they're having", the cause of which seems obvious: brats throwing out the healthy food because they "don't like it".

Spoiled.
