    So, some will say, "Why didn't you put this in education?"

    Because this isn't about education. This is about the liberal nanny state and how their "good intentions" are always a huge fail.

    L.A. schools' healthful school lunches panned by LAUSD students - Los Angeles Times

    Now this is funny to me, because I noted this from my kid. She's in middle school now and because she's older, she requested to start buying lunch instead of packing it ("all the other kids do," she whines).

    But that was more than a year ago. THIS year with the big push for "healthy eating" via Michelle Obama, my kid absolutely surprised me a month and a half ago when she told me the "lunch food is awful, can you please pack my lunch?"

    I'll tell you, that was a shock. A year ago, she whined that no one else packed their lunch and the food in the cafeteria was better.

    The kid was so thrilled a year ago to buy her own food. But something has changed since then and I notice she is not the only kid this year toting a lunch box instead of buying.

    So what changed? This is what has changed. It's from my kid's school website:

    First there's an announcement there are changes to the lunch menus this Year which I'm not including, because I'm not giving you info and location of my kid's school and then there is this:

    So, the nannies from Michelle Obama on down decide they are going to push their good intentions and bright ideas on the kids AND THE KIDS WON'T EAT IT!

    This is typical of liberals. All this time, food and money wasted on a bright idea that any parent with common sense could have told them wasn't going to work.

    Way to go Michelle. Maybe next Obama can have you fix healthcare like Bubba wanted Hillary to do with his.

    What a surprise. When given a choice, kids eat junk food.

    Thanks for the enlightening post....:eusa_whistle::eusa_whistle::eusa_whistle:

    Really? Kids prefer junk food to healthier food? Wow, what a shocker! :omg: Next you're going to tell us that alcoholics don't like drinking and driving laws and smokers don't like it when they have to step outside for their smoke. This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that everybody hates Michelle Obama.

    And I am still concerned about the duplication of funding when someone gets welfare checks, FOOD STAMPS and free lunch and breakfast. Common sense would tell me that is a duplication of funds somewhere along the line. Pack the kids lunch for Goodness sakes and save this country millions! Eat cereal at home!
