Boy, big and/or little brothers and big and/or little sisters should want our children to eat healthy food at school. Period.
If you don.'t like that simple intelligent idea, parents can continue to fill their children with sugar and mcdonalds. The parents still have that choice.
Do you belive that children who get free education "will rely upon the government" too?
Our children eating healthier food should not be the latest witch and whine from the frightwingers.
parents should have the responsibility to feed and educate their kids. Drop the hot lunch program and parents can pack lunches. There are many schools that don't have a govt hot lunch program. They should either pay for the bus service or drop them off.

Kids go to school to learn. So lunch should teach them to eat healthy.

Garbage food is bad for kids and it should be fruit veggies and healthy grains for lunch. Just skip any meat and replace with nuts or such..

Anyone ho complains can bring sack lunch or not eat. If your kid is a fat slob who eats Mcydys 4 times a week H SHOULD EAT SOME GOOD FOOD.

Anyone who has fat kids should be charged with child abuse...

Obama’s conservative critics want to argue that releasing or transferring detainees from Guantanamo is dangerous, how do they explain why no one said a word during the Bush/Cheney era. In fact, the Bush/Cheney administration released or transferred 532 detainees from the prison at Guantanamo
... Because they do not want to blame bushbaby for bushbaby's acitions. Loll

Especially the parents living on the dole.

The welfare check should cover the groceries for the month,isn't that what part of those funds are for?

Their housing is subsidized and health insurance is paid for,yet they still receive food stamps and their kids get at least 2 free meals a day at school and they have meal programs during summer and school vacations and they're flocking to the food shares to boot.

I guess their welfare checks are only for expanded cable,booze and cigarettes?

They did not want us to bring our children home for lunch, but when it became apparent the food was disgusting we got special permission to pick them up, and bring them back after they ate a lunch. You have to point out the children are on special diets, and you will be responsible for picking them up, and bringing them back on time.
