pizzas are being removed in various menus as being too much of a junk food. take a look at the menus the various schools post online. rare to see pizzas on the menus.
.
and some schools have been known to take away foods that some kids bring for various reasons. be it not nutritious enough, has a allergen in it, etc....
.
http://www.nccivitas.org/2012/state-inspector... A mother in Hoke County complains her daughter was forced to eat a school lunch because a government inspector determined her home-made lunch did not meet nutrition requirements. In fact, all of the students in the NC Pre-K program classroom at West Hoke Elementary School in Raeford had to accept a school lunch in addition to their lunches brought from home.
.
http://now.msn.com/jenkins-clifton-jones-stud... Who knew the humble peanut butter and jelly sandwich could provoke such controversy? Jenkins Clifton-Jones, a student at a school in Viola, Ark., had his homemade PB&J confiscated in accordance with the school's ban on peanut products.
.
and many schools are using a prepaid system. where the parents have to pay in money ahead of time. and the kid uses a personal pin code when they buy the lunch. like at my daughter's school. even if the kid is on the low income plan. if they buy a second lunch. they have to pay full amount for the food. as in what higher income kids are being charged.
.
by the way, if a kid did have their parent's ebt card for those on that program. and not every low income person is. not only would they need their parent's permission. but the parent would have to inform the school as well on it. as well as get the school's permission to use it as well.
Okay great post

#1- holy crtap they actually inspect home lunches, my god do the commies in russia even do that? parent-teacher conferences on it, my god does this not scream Social Engineering

#2- I actually eat peanuts on flights now (that and the restrictions have relaxed a liitle, I got some delta peanuts from DBIA to ATL a few months ago, although the pilot seemed to forget how to use the Auto Pilot but thats another story) anyhow if it's safe to open a bag regardless all the liberal B.S. that was spewed in a vaccum space then a classroom should be fine, the majority can't come down to minority standards on Every single issue, unless that minority votes republican then they are psychotic capitalists

#3- The EBT card thing was a joke and a conversation on that is rather long doncha think

I was stating that kids if not given enough of the right foods to eat. they will seek out other places. and they tend to be fast food.
.
fast food is ok if it is only eaten rarely. not as a every day thing.
.
I remember going out to the Hardees that was right by my school a few times. when I felt like I did not want what was on the menu. as well as when I had a couple of extra cash to spend. and back then, the jokes about school lunches at times were correct.

If you think kids eating fast food is bad in your day, how about not feeding them and then how much fast food do you think they eat

While I think that the intent of Michelle Obama's war on fat kids is well intended, it is clear that she has no clue as to the real world. Even her husband grabs real food when she isn't around.

Does lowering the calorie count of the school lunch mean that students aren't allowed to bring their own lunches or snacks? It seems like a couple of granola bars in the backpack might get a kid through the mid-morning or afternoon stretch.

how rich do you think I am these days? I am not. I also remember hearing how many low income folks in the past managed to feed entire families. as in having a garden. like my dad's side did. and they were poor as church mice. and they had 13 kids to feed. and they didn't take charity either. they grew a garden.
.
that is why I try to tell folks about even window gardens. or if they have a patio. either a rain gutter garden and or a topsy turvy one. like their 6 holed tree garden. and it looks like for indoor ones - hydroponic gardens.
.
http://www.hydroponicsinfocentral.com/what-is... # Most people learning how to hydroponics are worried they may not have enough space to successfully maintain a homemade hydroponics system. Believe it or not, when you learn how to hydroponic, you’ll understand how easy it is to grow pretty much anything you need right from your home. In fact, you can grow tomatoes from your kitchen windowsill.
.

.
http://sharedsurvivalknowledge.com/2011/06/09... Many apartment dwellers are confined to balconies, or small patios, and a collection of containers can start to look like clutter and cost a lot of money up front. Gutter gardens are a great way to take advantage of the vertical spaces around your home to grow flowers, edibles and create a stylish space divider or privacy screen without spending too much money.
.
http://www.countryliving.com/outdoor/rain-gut... As long as you've got a blank wall or bare fence that needs beautifying, you can tend edibles, annuals, even perennials with these vertical gardening ideas — all of which inspire high hopes for the season ahead.

.
it is cheaper to grow one's own food than it is to buy it.
.
but if low income family needs to buy. there is groups like CEAP, The Emergency Foodshelf and their Fair Share Store, etc....
but by teaching folks how to garden. it is in many ways like the proverb about a man and fish. give a man a fish, you can feed him for a day. but TEACH him how to fish. he can feed himself for a lifetime.

Why do you keep saying this? Why whould we care if kids "don't want a veggie"? You seem to be overly concerned with kids going hungry because they are refussing the healthy food given.

thing is, there are some folks, kids included who are allergic to veggies. queen obama does not realize that lil fact. she thinks that she can make every kid eat their veggies. allergic or not.
kids do need the nutrients from the veggies as well as fruits. but those who are unable to handle them. they need to get them in a different form.

Folks! Be damm careful with your veggies after Svengoolie has handled them. The will be loaded with the kind of bacteria you want to stay away from. Especially the cucumbers.

actually allergies to food is more common than you think. and some are specialized ones.
.
like those who are allergic to poison ivy should avoid mangos due to both containing urushiol oil. in mangos, it is mainly in the rind.
.
and look how many are allergic to ragweed.
.
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29036809/ns/healt... “As many as one-third of the people with seasonal allergies experience oral allergy syndrome,” says allergist Dr. Clifford W. Bassett, medical director of Allergy and Asthma Care of New York, and vice chairman of public education at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
This type of cross-reactivity — which occurs when a pollen allergy also causes a reaction to food that contains a similar protein chemical — is not widely understood beyond allergy specialists,
The protein in ragweed pollen is also related to the chemicals in cantaloupe, banana, sunflower seeds, zucchini and cucumber. Grass pollen is related to peaches, celery, melons, tomatoes and oranges.

A third of a % of people with another allergy.... The total is about 4-5% of the total population has some form of food allergy, and only some of those are fruit (with far less having any form of allergy to vegetables). Once again this is the exception and isn't what is being talked about.
