    Capitalist america having socialised school lunch

    entitlement to free meals for thousands of children, and local authorities gets provision of school meals to competitive tender. Privatized school meal under, the minimum solution with minimum nutrition. Giving children bad eating habits at an early age. The result of privatised school meals is the cheapest fast food.

    Typical american "socialized" school lunch: French fries,nachos and chocholate milk.

    Here is how it is done in Norway, they have no free school lunch and no entitlement. The kids have to make and bring there own lunch.

    Isnt it better that the kids start to make there own lunch from an early age and bring it, instead of a minimum privatised solution giving kids bad habits.?The government could also save a lot of money by cutting the school lunch to zero. Have you thought of all the bureacracy and inefficiency a program like this gives. You need to hire people to order, ta make the food etc. It is always cheaper, faster and better to do it yourself and it gives more responsible and healthier kids.

    Socialised lunch or self-made lunch, whats best?

    Reminded me of going to school on the south side of Chicago during the Great Depression. Most of us were pretty hungry and there was no free government lunches. Lunch time was usually pretty bleak and while we didn't have free lunches we did have "cobs". If you saw somebody with food you could run up and yell cobs, and the food holder then, by playground law, had to give you a bite. But if the food- holder saw you coming he could yell "no bites, no nothings." and he didn't have to share. The country has come a long way from cobs during the depression to free lunches today.

    You are mistaken if you think that Capitalism had anything to do with those school lunches.

    Cronyism is not capitalism.

    The FDA Food Pyramid is what makes you fat. It's filled with Gov't subsidized crap your body doesn't need or want.

    Get off it and watch the pounds fall off.

    This is true. Carbs and dairy should be at the top of the pyramid, to be enjoyed infrequently.

    Sure you can. You're choosing to be fat. It's only that, a choice.

    Ponder this for a moment or two if you will ....

    What you believe becomes true for you. If you believe you can't resist such meals, then you won't be able to resist them. But ... if you tell yourself, and believe that you can resist such meals, then you'll be able to. It's really that simple. It's just a matter of whether your willing to do that or not.

    If you hate being fat ... do something about it.
