I agree, I mentor at our local elementary school at lunch time. It is incredible what the kids throw away. It would be much better to let parents pack lunches that the kids will eat. What difference does it make how nutritious the school lunches are if the kids won't eat it?

Sasha and Malia apparently aren’t enough for Michelle Obama. She wants to mother our children, too. That’s the only conclusion that can be reached when observing the First Lady’s campaign to decrease parents’ role in raising their children.

Obama’s latest method of gaining more control is through school food nutrition standards. Noting that home-packed lunches aren’t up to the First Lady’s standards, the government is making school meals free for all, regardless of income, as part of a four-state pilot program that begins this fall.

Given our penchant for free stuff, parents will be walking right into the trap. But never...
