Also, kids have a choice in eating school lunch or not. At the end of the day, it's still a choice of parents and kids as to what they put in their bodies. Schools (and chefs working with those schools) are merely trying to make sure that kids have the most healthy choices available. The lunchroom is a classroom, and there are fantastic lessons to be learned here. Drrisk2, what's your suggestion to this issue?

Good question - I'd say when the majority of the US populations' life style choices, eating habits in this example, contribute to the financial implosion of the US health care system, that's one reason to have this. What's your suggestion to this specific issue?

This should not be a partisan issue. It's simply a health issue.

The author, as well as everyone else, wants their kids to succeed in academics, no question about that. Studies show, http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/healthy-eating-plate/ that balanced meals consisting of real foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, good fats, and lean proteins will help kids have steady energy throughout the day so they can be successful. The science is irrefutable. At least at school kids can have an equal playing field in having a decent meal so they can have the nutrition needed to succeed. Of course the challenge is getting parents, who currently don’t provide real food to their kids, to start recognizing the short and long term benefits to themselves, their kids, their communities and beyond.
