And who knows how long sack lunches will be an option....in some schools, parents have been deemed unfit to provide lunches for their kids.

You don't know what you are talking about. The major costs of the school lunch program formerly included sufficient bread for a sandwich, plus an apple or other fruit. macaroni and cheese, or beef hotdogs,( with milk and butter part of government subsidies) The major costs were the kitchen help and the teacher aides monitoring the cafeterias.

Let me try to get this straight.....school kitchen workers are loosing their jobs because kids are being fed HEALTHY FOOD??.....And some "parents have been deemed unfit to provide lunches for their kids". So.......These school lunches could be the only decent meal these kids eat all day? So you think that this one meal they eat should not be one that is balanced and healthful?
Has the whole world gone mad?!

Why aren't parents protesting in the streets over this? How dare the government come in and dictate what our kids eat? And believe me, this is the tip of the iceberg with these people. If Obama gets a second term, Obamacare kicks in, and the government will feel it has all the rights in the world to dictate what we ALL eat or drink, how much we weigh, how much exercise we take a day, what vitamins we can take (if any; certainly not self-prescribed), etc.This is how freedom is lost -- in increments. And what the government controls, it can take away or cut back on, or whatever it chooses -- and these control freaks love that idea.
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.
