Everyone Hates New Gov Lunch Program With Good ReasonSubmitted by McWilly on Tue, 09/25/2012 - 15:04
Complaints are mounting against the new Michelle Obama instigated Government lunch program for schools Kindergarten through High School. Lunches cost more money (25 cents compared to 20 per plate) and provide children with less food – something that has already become a problem with teens and athletes. This of course gets our collective ire raised as the government once again insists that it knows what’s best for all of us, and it will force us to comply whether we like it or not.
Under the current system that has been instituted, many staples have been removed or altered so substantially that they are simply not appetizing to students.

If you were a child or teen would most of those look or sound appetizing to you? No, of course not. These are meals that fall into the absolute most hippie, Whole Foods market shopping demographic I have ever seen. And yes, I do occasionally shop at Whole Foods and I have a very wide food palette. But for the government to make these sweeping changes and institute meals into schools that maybe 10% of the population would ever eat on a regular basis is absurd.
The argument from the food gestapo side is that the children are provided enough to eat and if they don’t eat it.
