You can lead the kid to the lunch room
but you can't force him to eat.
My wife works at the school, and they throw away a fuckton of food, it's just shit. Everything is low fat, whole wheat, and no salt.
An organization losing money because of a federal program.
I just don't believe it.
For once I mean it when I say "wont anyone think of the children?"
Nanny Government Fail.
They went overboard in what they are trying to force
kids to eat so the kids just won't eat it.
We send our kids with a packed lunch. They were coming home hungry everyday last year. It's not healthier if no one eats it.
An Obama program that has the exact opposite effect of what was intended? Where have we heard this before?
Maybe the kids would eat the food if it didn't suck.
The problem isn't the food. I ate shit as a kid and I'm neither unhealthy or fat and I wasn't as a child. The problem is kids lead the same seditary lifestyle as most adults these days. When I was young me and my friend ran around the neighborhood playing games and riding bikes. Now kids waddle to the PS3.
Instead of spending billions on reforming lunch use that money to bring back PE and sports. In my state many school district are actually charging parents upwards of 150 dollars to allow their kids into after school programs! Needless to say it caused participation to drop.
Oh and parents. Kick your kids out of the house! Rule was when I got home from school I did my homework to completion and was then sent out the door to play until dinner was ready. After that I could go back out or play some NES. Usually I was scarfing down dinner as fast as possible so I could go back out with my friends.
But then again I grew up to be a knob gobbler so take what I say for what its worth.
A great example of a cautionary tale for all you parents. Go out and get your kids as many video games as they want.
Have you seen the games children play these days. Animal Crossings, LittleBigPlanet, Skylanders. They are doomed to slide down the fleshy fire pole either way.
The little fatties could stand to skip a few lunches.
If anyone ate the 'healthy choices' at a high school cafeteria, they'd get the shit kicked out of them for being faggots. A pear-eater is a mark.
But parents won't let kids outdoors unless they are supervised... have a GPS tag on them etc... etc.. etc...
The little tubs of lard should be running for their lives, every waking moment.
They should be living in a Hunger Games styled environment.
and NONE of that is healthier for you. low fat is dog shit as animal fats are good for you, especially for the brain. whole wheat isn't easily digestible by the human body. the human body needs salt, that's basic biology.
do these assholes have any idea how many delicious healthy foods actually exist or are they too busy reading up on fad diets that don't work?
That is what Jamie Oliver has been doing in the UK... and I think he tried it here... with mixed results.
I rarely ate at the cafeteria... as back in the day you used to be able to leave campus. And I would walk the 15 minutes home and make my lunch... note we did have like a one hour lunch though.
The high school teacher who boarded here said basically the kids were in the school the whole day and not allowed to leave... guess due to liability or whatever.
the problem with jamie oliver is he's british. i immediately stop listening when i hear that awful accent.
I don't know. A halved pear kind of looks like a vagina so I would imagine that's what the cool kids are eating. I'd stay away from bananas and cucumbers. And warning. Don't just google Pear Vagina. The Pear of Anguish does not sound fun.
What's wrong with Animal Crossing?
That's not entirely true. Sure, you need SOME animal fat but fried chicken isn't healthy. And that's what kids would prefer to a grilled chicken breast. And do you think refined flour is any better? So it's a choice between diabetes and what then?
When the hell did this place become fruit central?
I didn't get no stinking memo!
refined flour is shit. also, the unhealthy far from fried chicken comes from the oil it's fried in. but i guess you also didn't read where i said that animal fats are good for you. i know, reading is a very complicated thing to do.
You're saying vegetable oil is worse for you than the skin on fried chicken? I was referring to the skin. Maybe it's you who needs to brush up on your comprehension.
