I agree with the benefits of children coming into class fed, and ready to start the day. HOWEVER, if you make the choice to have a child, shouldn't you be the one responsible to feed him? These school breakfasts are not simply a milk and a muffin. These are full meals - pancakes, sausages, egg mcmuffins, etc.

When do we stop raising people's children for them? Universal breakfast doesn't cost the families anything....but along the line, SOMEONE has to pay for it. You and me.
