My kid told me that she can't get oatmeal for breakfast anymore at South Middle because they are out and won't be getting more! My school tax money should at least get my kid some oatmeal. I thought the school was trying to help kids be healthy. Guess not.

One serving of school oats contains more sugar than a Snickers bar, not the same as oats you eat at home. That is unless you use instant oats in which the glycemic index nearly doubles versus the old fashioned oats!

Let me be clear, the reason there won't be any oatmeal for the rest of the year is they aren't going to order it because the year is almost over.
So you believe the school should serve Snicker bars for breakfast? When is the last time you've eaten breakfast at school? Schools are not allowed to serve items loaded with sugar and fat. If you want your child to eat empty calorie food items, go for it. Why shouldn't oatmeal at least be a choice?

When I was a boy my mom fix me Quick Quaker oats before I went to school. My children ate breakfast at home before school and now my grandchildren are eating breakfast before they go to school. Have you thought of that?

You were clear! Although, you do sound absolutely insane. I never said that schools should serve Snickers bars for breakfast, I said the oatmeal served at school contains nearly the same amount of sugar as a Snickers bar. You yourself said schools are not allowed to serve items loaded with sugar and fat, being that the oatmeal glycemic index is in the 80's you obviously have no idea what you are talking about! Why not thank Michelle Obama!!! Now, as far as my children, they eat glutten free cereal before school or eggs. Of everything about the schools and the system, you want to fuss about oatmeal? Really?
