    If we had that many children who were actually allergic to peanuts, wheat, eggs, or whatever else... we would have had kids dropping like flies in the 70's and 80's (and even before that).... These hypochondriac doctors, medical regulatory agencies, and stage production politicians have taken this wayyyyyy too far for years, and it just keeps getting worse

    Funny, I read the article after I commented and surprisingly there is not one mention of food allergies which what I thought would be their rationale. Instead they are saying how much healthier the school lunch is! :lol: The pic actually has tater tots and that infamous orange government cheese product...

    Actually they did say that kids with allergies could bring their lunch in.

    Just more government reach "for our own good"......

    Big Agra strikes again.

    The people who benefit from this are the Big Food companies. This is pure crony capitalism - and the big government nonsense we need to stop NOW.

    I was wondering which one of your anal puppets was going to point out that one sentence of the article did actually mention the word allergies in it. ;)


    "Only students with allergies are allowed to bring a homemade lunch to school, the Chicago Tribune reports."



    I thought perhaps their rationale would be that the kids with allergies may be exposed to a deadly peanut or something. :lol: And that turned out not to be the case...
