After just one year, some schools around the country are dropping out of the healthier new federal lunch program, complaining that so many students turned up their noses at meals packed with whole grains, fruits and vegetables that the cafeterias were losing money.
Federal officials say they don't have exact numbers but have seen isolated reports of schools cutting ties with the $11 billion National School Lunch Program, which reimburses schools for meals served and gives them access to lower-priced food.
Districts that rejected the program say the reimbursement was not enough to offset losses from students who began avoiding the lunch line and bringing food from home or, in some cases, going hungry.
School districts have been complaining about financial losses.

You can't just plonk something "new" down in front of kids and expect them to instantly love it - as any parent will tell you!!
It takes persuasion - call it propaganda if you want, but it is true - if amerce wants to stop the current generation from being the lardiest ever then you have to actually change your society's attitude to food - start worshiping fruit and veges instead of fries and burgers, parents and teachers and politicians and all need to lead by example, and so forth.
social engineering?? you bet.
