Kids are kids. They are going to eat little or nothing one day, or junk. The other days of the week they will eat just fine. That's just the way it is and all the government "assistance" in the world isn't going to change the character and behavior of human children. Parents know this, administrators don't. LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE! Very few children have grown up and developed rickets or other dietary related diseases due to poor lunches at school. If schools force kids to pick up a lunch tray of food they won't eat, two bad outcomes occur: the food goes in the trash (which the taxpayer paid for) AND the kid goes through the day hungry and distracted and sad. Lose-Lose situation. Duh!
