To battle childhood obesity the government along with school administration will have the power to dictate what your child can and can't eat in school. The 4.5 billion dollar bill will also include guidelines as to what your child brings from home for a snack or lunch.

Since when does the government have the authority to tell your children what they can and can't eat? As Michelle Obama puts it, "..we can't just leave it up to the parents." The gap between parenting and children is getting large and the government sees more opportunity to wedge themselves right in between. There is no stopping them because the schools system has been federalized.

If the government feels that it is their responsibility to decide what your children can eat then what is to stop them from deciding what you eat at home?

I believe that there is a large group of parents out there who are more then happy to hand over their parental responsibilities to the government so that they can work more hours to buy themselves more junk.

This is truly a sad state of affairs. What has happened to the education system in this nation is a fantastic example tyrannical bile.
