you seem like one of those inflammatory forum posters we hear so much about....

All we got was a tax? Wow.

I should add that even if the government didn't dictate what schools served for lunch, then the schools themselves would obviously do so. Either way, unless you pack your child's lunch (which, by the way, you are still more than welcome to do) SOMEBODY ELSE is dictating what your child eats for lunch.

There are so many valid, legitimate reasons to criticize the Obamas, if one so desires, that it boggles my mind when people focus on absolutely meaningless stuff like this.

Honestly some of that doesn't sound bad, if it were made with quality ingredients. In our schools the sloppy joes, hamburgers, taco filling is all made with low quality meats that I would never make my kids eat. Mini corn dogs?? Seriously, how is that healthy anyway? If it were made with higher quality ingredients and then cut out the processed corn dogs I would say this is a decent menu for kids. I'm not saying that the govt has any business telling us what to feed our kids by any stretch, but far too many parents feed their kids crap food. Obesity in kids is sky rocketing and in turn it effects our health insurance rates as more and more kids and people have health problems related to obesity. What's so hard about packing your kids a freakin healthy lunch? I have four kids and manage to do it just fine. We get creative, we make all sorts of foods that they love and that are healthy. Their ages range from 7-15 years old too so for the older ones we just increase the quantity. Oddly enough my 15 year old eats much less than my 13 year old who is a bottomless pit when it comes to eating. LOL The thing I notice about the schools lunches where we are is that they are extremely carb heavy and almost zero vegetables. They are given a piece of fruit, but no vegetables unless you count the little piece of iceberg lettuce on a hamburger. What I wonder about is those parents that you talked about buying koolaid type drinks and little debbies, seriously? They complain about a much healthier lunch because it isn't enough food, great, send more healthy food to school with them or pack their lunches. But to go buy crap food to send to school? How ignorant is that?

I think this has very little do with portion size, sounds like it's more about the taste than anything else. Let's blame Obama anyway.

The stuff doesn't sound so bad, though since it's school food it probably taste horrible.

Back when I was in high school (6 or so years ago), we used to have pizza with the real mozzarella, and grease coming off the pepperoni, cheese fries with ground beef, lettuce, jalapenos, tomatoes on top, and all that other garbage that taste so good I would buy it every day. Strangely enough I didn't seem to gain weight until they brought in the "healthier" choices and the pizzas had the burnt cheese that wouldn't melt, and the ground beef that resembled the clumpy dog food, I eventually just stopped eating lunch and burned the weight off swimming after school. It wasn't a lot of weight, but enough to notice, like 10-15.

School lunches are bad regardless of the type of food. They can even make pizza taste bad.

Wheat in Everything. Study wheat. It makes you fat. Wheat has things in it that are not digestible by the body.

The Government knows this.. it's another form of population control and getting more people sick so they can treat you for phoney symptoms with expensive drugs- especially in lieu of Obamacare.

White bread is bleached wheat bread. It's just as bad for you, but those lunches didn't really make the lunches any healthier - it's all a scam.

Where do they get the meat for the corn dogs and sloppy joes? How fresh is it really.. do you know the meat isn't irradiated? Look up Obama's stance on irradiated meat to find out.

I am in High School and live in Los Angeles, my district is LAUSD.
The School Lunches are absolutely terrible. It's not only the types of food. Stuff we would usually love, Spaghetti for example, is terrible. They sometimes serve spaghetti for lunch, I love spaghetti, but it is terrible. They're not even made on the spot, they're microwaved in small packages. The sauce is always dry and tasteless and the wheat noodles are terrible. I know how to make spaghetti, and I use wheat noodles cause I like them but the school ones are terrible. Food just seems to be getting more and more terrible. Even their burgers have dry crappy meat.

P.S. I was in Middle School when the Menu's changed, we had a "Student Store" where they sold chips, cookies, brownies, etc... and it was occasionally full but now after the menu change it was like Walmart on Black Friday, while the Cafeteria was empty like never before.

It just worries me about all the money the districts are throwing to the trash by providing nasty foods.

Sure as long as the cafeteria food police don't confiscate it and replace with McNuggets!

Everyone is so busy trying to make food "healthier", they end up just making it unpalatable. If I want carrot sticks and spinach I will have it at home. I will add #ake-sesame marinade and some nice lettuce and it will be superior. Spinach can be great lightly steamed with butter, and no butter doesn't cause heart attack. Coconut oil is an alternative and it seems healther than other vegetable oils. But, why is it so difficult to make a decent lunch at school?
hahaha the forum software changed the name of the mushroom lol that's hilarious, oh well you all know what it is right?

well long time no post, bear with me, I'm using tiny keyboard here...Ok,

Let's see, for an Alternative radical not AMERICAN COG INTERNALIZED MISOGYNIST VIEW HERE,

For starters, agree that big guberment shouldn't be dictating what parents feed children, HOWEVER, since taxpayers pay schools and many low income children ARE dependent on school lunches, breakfast and with single LOW income mothers of those FETUSES raping jerk poppers luv so much and their bimbo parrot women, well those kids Should be eating well and since we are such a Gawdly fetus living high five to rape culture and court ordered pedowanks custody rights, well by golly we, the gawd douchebag Waliban nation surely, want to FEED those now young FETUSES lunch, so bitching about how poo poo Menz have to pay for their porn shades of gray rapy fetus maker culture, my heart bleeds....not

So, with That in mind, as a carrier and caretaker of four near grown Fetuses, with two no sperm jerk donor support whatsoever because Christian gawd bag # only pushes responsibility on the vagina, never his gawd most of his brothers...

I know how to feed children healthy and cheap. So, my input, Americans eat # anyway, period...obesity is due to LAZY folks who can't even Walk three blocks to de store, cuzz fetus rapey Menz more important they have their big zoom zoom cars, but THAT aside, then ere is crap looks kind of like food but totally gross, that whole mcD thing, yuk,

The school menu wasn't bad, but a tad skimpy, let's see, hamburger (gross) with no cheese, orange and what else? hmmm, well if junior had a big Breakfast btw more important meal, then I guess that would suffice, but wouldn't it be better, let's see,

To have, salad or stew, soup, homemade, not that canned #, and

A sandwich on kaiser bin, with sauces, all types of veggies, (subway?) and a fruit? water to about also, pasta and salads with a fruit compote? how about loe mein noodles, or rice bowls?

see the problem is the menu didn't change, it just skimped, the food is still fast food type of crap. fritz pies and hot dogs are ok on occasion, but Americans just don't eat healthy period...packaged food is huge part of problem, but you see, all those Menz and their LUV of fetuses...rape, who NEVER take care of fetuses or nurture them, other than fondle them (usually same assholes who wanna raped prego moms, fact) because IF those Menz knew anything other than fifty ways to rape a woman BDSM hustler, or child,

Then they would
Would that # fast packaged salt foods may assist the slave, er I mean cum dump gawd bag breeder # toilet, so she can also work along with her 90percent Of domestic SLAVERY and free Prostitution for GAWD DICK Master man, so he can BUY that gas war oil hog of a big mud truck ug ug vehicle to go along with his ug ug raping fetus maker rapy dick,

That food is crap. But capitalists made it so big dick gawd could have more for his LUST...and of. Ourse, Zeig Hail, make those white fetuses...consumer zombies and tax lawers...more dumbed down slaves for de gawd kings, so...schools too, became Patriarchy's Other nanny...keep those # toilets in line, erase mother bit by bit, and feed kids trash. oh, and police remove those nasty skateboarding fetuses from malls and communitities, force them in front of WAR GAWD ARIES FOR OIL violence games, making them FAT, and violent and ready to be INDOCTORNATED into PORN RAPE culture...and teach those young # too
Ets when daddies, judges, pedowanks drs and priests aren't #ing little Susie in de back room closet...

How to be a good little fetish STARVED THIN WAIF raccoon eyed foot bound mind bound submissive...


School lunch menus, the HUNGER games begin. Dont fret, your gawd bags, douchbags, raping PEDO wank bags, have been grooming you for years,

Right left, dicks are the same...

Empowered WOMEN WHO KNEW INSTINCT are long gone...# toilets they are, they rely on TV, Magazines by same Porn ha ha lets rape women culture and gawd bag fetus rape culture to tell them how to feed children, even do it for them,

Unlike the OTHER female animals, who would
RIP THE HEADS literally off any male animal that interferes with their young, from a lioness to a bear...

Those animals, POWERFUL NOT SUBMISSIVE DICK WORSHIPPING FEMALES who KNOW how to train their young how and what to eat!

No wonder, we are in the mess we are in...

Sure its not their business. Its also not their job to give whatever YOU want for school lunch. If you CHOOSE to buy school lunch, you CHOOSE to eat what they serve. I dont get why this is such a difficult concept to grasp.

Yes and no.
If the school (using my taxpayer money) wants to sell whatever and kids choose to buy it, then fine.
If kids choose to bring their own food then fine (and it's no ones concern what they bring)
But you said if you choose to buy school lunch you get what they serve, so that,s okay for kids, but you don't give money to bugerking and take what they give you, do you?

Anyone who pay's for food should have a choice in what they eat. Why do we believe our kids are so dumb they can't pick their own food?

To GRASP the truth of what is really going on please watch the documentary "War On Kids"

and that right there perfectly proves my point. SCHOOL IS NOT A RESTAURANT. Period. To compare the two is outright lunacy.

Furthermore, once again, taxpayer dollars do not fund school lunches. School lunch programs, for the most part, are required to be self-sustaining.

To grasp the truth of what is going on, look up the definition of "school", and show me where is says anything about providing a full menu for lunch.

What kid eats carrot sticks? Cmon, if it's going in the trash it's just a waste. Muchelle thinks she is going to retrain all the kids because the parents don't know what they are doing. This is what I do not like about her and her programs.

Yeah, after reading the whole topic, I see a lot of people saying "The lunches don't sound too bad, kids love sloppy joe" or "these stupid kids dont know nutrition." What they don't realize is that the quality is what matters. Yesterday at school they served Chicken Breast for lunch, and they actually cooked it there. Guess what? It actually tasted good, but then they served some sort of Orange Chicken Bowl the day before that was microwaved and it was horrible. It's quite funny, the hamburgers are wrapped in foil paper, when new kids go to a school in the district for the first time, they say "Sweet! Burgers!" and when they open the foil and see the burger inside they're like "Crap! Where's the trash!?"

The main point is QUALITY. If you throw down anything, whether it's Hamburgers or Spinach Salads, if it doesn't look appetizing, no one would eat it. LAUSD is spending more money on veggies, from about 2 million to 20 million, but what's the point if they're of bad quality. READ THIS
The only reason the food was good there was because it was made fresh, not frozen.

How much of the child obesity problem is due to sitting in front of a TV or video game for hours on end? MORE EXERCISE!

posted on Aug, 26 2012 @ 12:01 AM

they're not making it their business. They've changed the guidelines on what food options state-funded schools serve to those who choose not to provide their own.
reply to post by dogstar23

And you talk about my logic?
So the Federal Government telling the state what to feed kids, is them not making it their business?
And what about the whole if they don't think your kid is eating right they can take the "brown bag" lunch?
And please don't get me started on how they treat kids in schools today, yet they wonder why kids lash out.

But no they're not masking it their business.
