    I dont have a problem with making good nutrition a part of an overall education, especially at a taxpayer funded school.

    Nutrition and obesity are huge problems we face. We have to fix it somehow.

    I see no problem with regulations on what type of food can be sold to the public, and what can be served in schools.

    I do however believe a person should be able to grow and consume any food they want on their own property; including marijuana, and excluding heroin, cocaine, etc. These laws forbidding a person from drinking raw milked from their own cows is insane.

    But...no problem at all with grocery stores and public schools having regulations on what they can sell.

    Authoritarian drivel. The government isn't there to tell us how to eat.

    When it's our tax dollars feeding our kids?

    You don't like the idea of the schools serving nutritious lunches? Pack your kids' lunches....you can give them all the twinkies and deep fried butter you want.

    We don't need government to feed our kids either. Task them with that, and you get just this kind of shit - politicians deciding what we should eat.

    Nutritional lunches are fine. But eating the right amount of calories is part of nutrition. Just cutting out calories is bad, they need to be good filling calories that have nutritional value. At 31 years old my fitness level requires I eat about 2700 calories a day, and that's just to maintain my weight.

    This program was obviously crafted by someone who has no fucking clue about proper nutrition.

    I don't have a problem with schools being directed to provide nutritious meals. We do have a problem with overweight kids. But parents should also be able to make that choice, and send lunches with their kids if they want. I don't believe anyone should be FORCED to feed their kids certain foods, or tell people what they can grow in their own gardens (including marijuana).
