I like how Brian bashes the coal industry while his sits at his computer soaking up the electricity that coal provides him. for the record I don't work for nor am I supported by someone who does work for the coal industry.Also,mac and cheese was the protein provided for the kids at school today so I guess it's okay for them to feed the kids nothing but mac and cheese but if we serve it at home we're horrible parents? Why is this dude allowed to breath my dirty West Virginia air? Go get a clue and tell me how the lights are going to work when they shut down these coal plants. Maybe you want to be Amish but I don't and there isn't a back up plan for the energy. When these plants get shut down we'll be buying coal from other countries whose policies on clean air aren't nearly as serious and what little regulations they do have are very rarely enforced. What a lovely way to save the planet!We also won't have as much government money to feed our kids healthier food choices in public schools. So please shut up idiot and let these people discuss this BS lunch menu, it is fairly obvious you don't have children being force fed cardboard and since my tax dollars do pay for the cardboard I shouldn't have to pack his lunch for him to have edible food when I send him to school.

In Mercer and Wyoming counties school lunches are free to everyone regardless of your income level. In Wyoming county if you pack a lunch for your child it will be inspected to make sure it meets the guidelines of the county. If it doesn't your child will be feed a lunch from the cafeteria.

Remind me never to move to Wyoming Co. I'd not be ok with a school telling me what I can and cannot feed my child.

I see an article about this in NC, they threw out the kids turkey sandwich and fed them chicken nuggets. It will be spread across the US before long.

the obesity problem started when the school system
started using processed meals which are loaded with
fillers and gravies and loaded with carbs. Noone
cooks anymore that is why Beckley has so many resturants. Children need develope a taste for fruits and vegetables and the meat they eat should not be processed meat but fresh meat. Has anyone read about the pink slime which the government buys for the school system? this started in the 90's how can fat treated with amonia and beef scraps be healthy for a child. Just as well feed them lard .

I agree that their is a problem for alot of children with their weight and that does cause health problems. But is it wise to change the food so extreme and so nasty that it just gets thrown away? there has to be a better way somewhere in the middle. My children are not over wieght and are healthy eaters. But they come home hungry cause the food is so nasty and the portions are so small.
Also is it really fair to "punish" all kids for those who choose not to eat healthy. Sounds like to me that if the parents of the kids would take a bit of interest on what they do and eat, then the goverment could get their noses out of it and focus on more important matters instead of starving our kids.

Could you go out and eat a healthy breakfast and lunch everyday for an entire month for $50? No? Then why in the world would anyone expect the government to do it for such a small amount?
I pay over 120 a month for two kids if they eat everyday. When Fayette county right next door gets free lunch. Every child in Fayette gets free lunch and has for the last two years. My childern deserve to eat better that's why I pack their lunch and serve them a warm breakfast at home. If they are having a lunch at school and my childern want to eat they are more then welcome to charge.

Fat free and reduced fat is what is making this country fat. Lower fat means MORE sugar and sodium. Please learn to read your labels before you spout off at the mouth lol. And not to mention families who don't receive assistance also have overweight members. What an idiot.

Kids are fat because they sit on their butts and watch tv and play video games instead of biking, and running outside. Get up and move, and stop eating chips, and other junk.

<quoted text>Thank you , but please don't feel sad for me. Unfortunately, not eating wasn't even the biggest concern for me. It was of course high on the list of daily problems I faced, but unfortunately I had a lot more than just that to worry about. Please don't feel sad for me though, that was several years ago, and I can honestly say the problems I faced only made me a stronger person. God has blessed me with 2 beautiful children, a wonderful husband, and the means to provide for my family. Although if you are going to feel sad for someone... Feel sad for the thousands of children who are abused or neglected Everyday in WV and Everyday in the US. Feel sad for the thousands of children who are being beaten, raped, and forced to become child soldiers Everyday in Africa. Yes... My life was rough, but there are a million children who have it 10x worse than I did.
thank God for you. I hate that michelle Obama has placed these kind of guidelines on the school meals. I think she should have to eat this prison slop herself. She needs to practice what she preaches and drop about 50 pounds.

They shouldn't be able to buy candy and sodas with the food stamps, I have seen kids with their parents EBT cards buying candy at stores.

Food stamps should be structured like the WIC program. If you want piles of Doritos & Pepsi, get a job. Food stamps should only cover approved foods, like milk, bread, chicken, & vegetables. Keep in mind that taxpayers have to also pay for all the medical expenses for these lard asses. All those trips to the doctors, their insulin & diabetes supplies, support hose for their fat ankles. Don't starve em but quit providing the means for them to eat piles and piles of garbage every month.

Very positive article today in the Register-Herald about the new school lunch program from a cook/cafeteria manager's perspective.

Yeah the kids are coming home hungry because YOU as parents are over feeding them in the first place. WV alone has the highest fat ratio of any other state. A portion size on a plate should be the size of your fist- to as round as a baseball or cd. There is no salt added because children are showing up ages 6-10 with hypertension. And other children are having heart related issues because of one primary issue, you are feeding your kids a plate full of death.... If your kids are coming home hungry then guess what, you do have dinner time right? This is a hard fact for many of you living in wv we all over eat. They are trying to teach kids in schools to eat healthy or guess what your going to die. Hate to put it so rudly but thats the way it is. So three words to cure this problem....... Pack, a, Lunch....
