If they don't want a SUBSIDED lunch they can bring there own food. The government is already involved in these foods choices. These are subsided lunches, with food that is made cheap through more agricultural subsidies. If you are against government involvement in our foods choices you should be against all agricultural subsidies. If the government IS going to be involved in food choices then doesn't it make sense for the government to be pushing healthy foods options? Especial with the level of childhood obesity?

The sheeple allowed this situation. Here is an Undeniable Truth of Life: He who pays the piper calls the tune. If parents want the gub'mint to take care of their little crumb crunchers, then they shouldn't complain about how the gub'mint does it. When parents give away responsibility to the gub'mint, they also give away authority.

The founders thought that the government was a necessary evil to be minimized, not an all pervasive good. Does this mean that, because the government built the roads, they also built the business?

YEah its fine to subsidize corn..which gives us corn syrup which drives the process of coke and all sweetened products to make them cheaper. Its ok for government to have a role in making people fatter, but to make it healthier then wait a minute. When a can of coke is cheaper then a bottle of water we have issues.
In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.

Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.
