    It's a good lesson for these teenagers. When you turn your life over to nanny state cradle to grave control freak socialist, you get nanny state cradle to grave control freak socialism. Welcome to liberalism 101 kiddies. A land where some pencil pusher tells you what to do and what to eat because you're to stupid to think for yourself and god of liberal will take care of everything for you.

    @AceLuby no, they set a "healthy lunch" directorate. They dictate that lunches be healthy. This is what "central planning" by leftist control freak pencil pushers do.

    @Ets101592 You need to blame the actual schools. Each school rules differently. Michelle only promotes and suggest healthy eating. Its up to the school to initiate.

    But keep trying to fight the make believe fight. Sure you will make a dent in it some day.

    Anyone else remember when politicians used to say a school lunch is the only good meal some children get on a daily basis? Then they run off to their several thousand dollars per plate fundraiser.

    They're both! They're funny and they are instructive! Our kids are 'fighting the power'! There IS still hope for our country! Yay!!!

    Another choice, is doing what I do for me, my wife and two school-age children every day: save money and make a nutritious lunch to take to school or work. It takes about 25 minutes to make 4 lunches and snacks for four people everyday. It really is not that hard.

    Be self-reliant and do it yourself!

    A little elementary school girl brought in her own lunch that was packed by her mother. It was a healthy meal, but not according to the school. They took it off of her and threw it away.

    @jjt47 I wonder why none of these stories are reported on the Obama News Networks?? CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC? Now, if Bush was still in office..........it would make the Headline teasers on National News!!

    It isn't working. I applaud her efforts to attempt to do something about childhood obesity, but her method is wrong. Kids go home and eat more food because they are starving… gone are the days when we ate a snack before dinner. Now kids are eating a meal before dinner.

    My question is, why are they eating school lunches. That is the lowest denominator of 'quality food.'

    Do these ungrateful brats and their families a favor. Cancel school lunch programs. Let the parents fend for themselves and their brats.

    We can take the budget money back and put it into other areas of education or just reduce taxes. Because if they don't like it, we should take it away.

    Then give the spoiled SOB's a cup of sugar, a slice of frozen pizza, and a ketchup packet for lunch. Those weren't small meals; they aren't starving. When you grow up without a lot of money, you actually appreciate food you're given.

    @BravoJuliet I'd like to know why kids have cellphones in school, when they should be in class...getting educated, instead of socializing,

    I have doubts about the pictures posted, I have been to my grand daughters school quit often and always see good healthy lunches.

    @62truckniels ...cell phones should be either banned in schools or required to be left in lockers until school is over. All three of my grand daughters have cell phones but are not allowed to use them in school unless its an emergency.

    Now we know where some of the VACATION money comes from. The Obooboos need to take a permanent vacation and I don't mean with Aerosmith. I would rather eat the fork. Prisoners get better food than our future citizens do. That is shameful. Maybe SHELL and her varmints need to eat some of that slop.

    Yea I have had jail house food from the county and I sadly was in the JOB CORPS program when younger(what a joke). I guess it is the state of our country in general, nobody gives a damn about anything but themselves anymore for the most part and their IPhone. I never had any desire to go to prison. My uncles seemed to love it there though, They had a reserved room at Moundsville WV. I just meant that prisoners seem to get luxuries while on their vacations; weight rooms, big screen TVs, etc... No one seems to have any problems with politicians going out to eat a $200 meal on the tax payers. Have a happy...

    Everyone should adopt this school lunch program.

    As soon as Michelle Obama sends her kids to DC public schools so they can eat the same food and interact with the rest of the 'hood. C'mon Michelle, sent a REAL example and show everyone else how it's done!

    Security would turn a school upside down to have the pres's kids there, and the Right would complain about the drain on the local school system. What a silly suggestion.
  • #148
    !
    @Nikkinala I guess if you read the comment before responding, "interact" means no security and doing the same as everyone else. A "REAL" example being a spoof on how those who tell others what to do and how to live will never allow themselves to experience what it is really like. What a silly response.

    @Your_Name_Here the idea of sending the kids of the POTUS into a public school with no security downright dangerous to students, faculty, and the Obama girls. Again, a very silly suggestion.
  • #178

    @Nikkinala What eludes you is the premise that people who have absolutely no idea what goes on in real life have no business trying to influence or control it. Just like you have no idea what's going on in this thread.
  • #248

    @Your_Name_Here A ridiculous premise is still ridiculous. The fact is that, once in public life, things change forever. NO President , or his family, could do what you describe without creating megatons of security issues for everyone around. You can't complain about something when the target of your ire CANNOT do what you want them to do.

    Look at all those empty tray slots! Does anybody else on here think that looks more like food rationing than healthy eating?

    If these examples are what Michelle thinks is healthy, she has just turned thousands of kids away from "health" and exacerbated the problem she was trying to solve. Typical for nanny states where "big brother" (in this case "big sister") knows best. The socialist approach has never worked and the administration is unwilling to look at the past history because they are so egotistical they think they can overcome socialism's problems. LESS GOVERNMENT IS BETTER GOVERNMENT!

    They are disgraceful. Unfortunately the kids will not learn anything of significance from these wonderful programs. I wonder if parents are allowed to pack lunches for their kids. I would hope so.

    Unfortunately, my kids are ling gone from school, but my grandkids aren't around to ask. I hear from my kids and read that a lot of schools won't allow kids to bring a lunch. Some are inspected and deemed unhealthy and thrown out! Yeah, better let the kids starve or force them to eat their lunch.

    @ahsum99ss My 2 school age grandchildren go to school in Port Washington. I do not think they have any problem at all with what they get fed. It probably is not free food though. I doubt if any of the residence their would qualify. Solid middle class and up community.

    When I went to high school back in the Stone Ages we had real cafeteria ladies who made the food right there in the Cafeteria. Homemade pizza, the best meatloaf sandwiches with gravy and chili con carne with a hunk of cheddar cheese melted over it with a big square of cornbread. Beef pinwheels (shredded roast beef wrapped in pastry over which gravy was poured). Real grilled cheese sandwiches were a favorite too. We had homemade mashed potatoes with gravy with everything and with buttered bread to sop it up with. And we had a 3 course meat, potato and vegetable for every meal. For dessert we had apple and cherry crisp and slices of pie and big pieces of chocolate cake. There weren't very many obese/overweight kids back then either. Isn't that funny? And, that was in the late 60's/early 70's. By the time my kids went to high school......in the 90's, they were trucking in the food from some food service. The price was quadrupled and they wouldn't eat the mystery meat that was served. Bring back the Cafeteria ladies!!!! This mandated food is just going into the garbage anyway!!

    Yep...when I went in the 1950s we got "real meals." The cafeteria ladies lived in the communities and probably had kids and grandkids in school. We got meat, green vegetable, rice or potatoes, gravy, bread, and dessert. It was all cooked right in the cafeteria kitchen and it was like what you ate at home...and you had better not throw too much away...you went through the line and got it and you carried your tray to a window where someone cleaned it off and washed it. There was always a teacher at that window to "have a word" with anyone throwing too much away.
    If you went away from the cafeteria hungry it was your own fault.

    Exactly what the school kids see in our county. They meet the federal standards, and then some. Just as in your stone age.

    @rdr Made in the cafeteria does not equal trucked in from some food service. I am talking about recipes that were requested by our hometown newspaper and were printed on food section page. No sense in trying to explain it to you. It is not the same. I guess that hot dog bun with sauce and cheese in the article was some sort of pizza boat? Hilarious!! If your schools are preparing food like what we had back then, your kids are lucky My kids, same school as I went to, weren't so lucky.

    @rdr Didn't you get the memo? THE FEDERAL STANDARD IT THE PROBLEM. Please excuse my loud voice, but sometimes it's necessary.

    That was before school funding was deemed a waste, mostly by republicans. Budgets get smaller and smaller, and student totals keep increasing because they merge middle-size schools into one large school without increasing that school's budget. Around here, it's the homeowners who bitch about taxes going to schools but they still want the schools to operate at peak performance.

    The photos of those lunches did not look like examples of 'healthy' lunches but meager lunches which are probably more the fault of your local school board than of Michelle Obama. Healthy food is not unappetizing nor insufficient. I did not see any vegetables or fruit, just white bread and unappetizing meat schlock. These kids and their families need to talk with their local school authorities. That is where the blame lies; they are not following the healthy guidlines instituted by the government which are intended to prevent obesity which leads to diabetes and heart disease.

    "You call this a fucking "lunch"? This turned me off to the whatever complaint these kids might have.

    Spoiled rotten, foul-mouthed little brat. Here's an idea. Get off your lazy teenage butt and make yourself lunch. I'm 56 years old and I make myself lunch every day to take to work because the alternatives are fast food and I know that's not healthy for me.

    Attitude is 9/10 of bringing about attention to a problem. You can do it with intelligence and grace or you can act like a two-year old throwing a tantrum. Personally, I couldn't care less what kids eat at school. Don't like it, take your own. Or do like parents always told me - sit down, shut up and be thankful you have food in front of you.

    Many schools won't let them. They have become food Nazi's. So of course the kid comes home and eats.

    It's actually a tie, it is instructively funny and shows us the result of good intentions creating a bad situation. My daughter actually started bringing her lunch because of how bad it has gotten. Sometimes she will get a drink or desert (fresh baked cookies the primary choice). The govt should stay the heck out of school lunches and let the parents in the district and the school itself set the "standards".
  • #223

    That has proven to be a mistake years ago, schools were buying junk food, sub standard food and there was a lot of waste.
