Totally Agree! That's why some school districts are dropping the federal lunch program.<quoted text>
Quite a lot of students from less from affluent families don't even utilize the free lunch program. What they're into is packing lots of really cheap junk food. This represents a local microcosm of America in that our "poor" are, by far, the Earth's fattest!.
The Campbell County, Ky. district is opting out http://www.fortthomas.kyschools.us/districtNe...
The reason: Kids didn't like their healthful lunches.
The 2800 student district ( http://www.fortthomas.kyschools.us ) joins a small BUT GROWING number of school districts across the country ---mostly wealthy districts than can afford to forfeit the money--that have dropped out of the federal program in the wake of stricter nutritional standards.
Schools said students don't like the unsalted potatoes, low-fat cheese or the mandatory fruits and vegetables. They throw food away or decide not to eat at all.
