Yes, the ENTIRE country seems to have gone mad to allow these buffoons to continue to tell us what to put in our child's bodies for nutrition. Most
of it is CEREAL based including the "BURGERS" Most of it contains or is sprayed with chemicals to increase open air longevity and usually stuff we
do NOT necessarily want IN our children. Just look at Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and you will see what I mean. I think he did two seasons of work
in the USA. Not sure if he's given up as most of these people who make the decisions on our children's school food are trying to SAVE MONEY not keep
our kids healthy. And they are VERY careful to make sure WE have ZERO say as parents who are PAYING FOR IT ALL.
The reason the children are HUNGRY at the end of the day is too small of portions and improper nutritional value in most of the foods to maintain that
proper full feeling until the next meal. Meat should be MEAT not Cereal with meat - Protein is what keeps us from being HUNGRY. That is why they are
hungry when they get home. Mostly what they get at school is CARBOHYDRATE based if you truly look at what's going into the food and how it's
bastardized by too much cooking and too many chemicals. WHY do WE NOT have a SAY?

While it is possible to have portions that are to small, I also think the current American idea of portion is out of wack. Eating until you are full
is not the ideal portion. This is the single change I made to my diet, for the most part I still eat whatever I want, I reduced the amount of fried
food, eat small sides of fruits and veggies, and no longer drink soda, but other than that very little has changed.
At the start of the year I weighed 325 pounds, and I had a habit of eating big portions so i felt full. At first the change to reasonable normal human
portions did leave me hungry, it did take some will power to stick to it, but my body eventually readjusted itself to new portions. Now I require
less and still feel satisfied. I have way more energy, I don't feel lethargic, I don't take naps, when I work hard I can go longer, mentally I have
I've lost 87 pounds without even going to the gym. All I did was reduce my portions and stop eating french fries every day. After a break from Soda
it actually upsets my stomach to drink one. If I eat my old potions my stomach hurts because it's way to much, but for years it was the norm and I
was used to it.
I've learned that it's possible to be hungry out of habit.
I've also learned that foods full of trans fat keep you hungry, because in time trans fat begins to block receptors in your brain that control this
stuff. I'm very interested in neuroscience, so this is was inspired me to finally test it out. I value my mental health so I approached it as an
experiment, and I've personally experienced positive physical and mental changes since making the change. I can't see myself ever going back.
