    If the school lunch isn't worth what you pay for it, either in portion size or quality, then let basic economics work itself out and bring a lunch with you. Schools and the government are slowly figuring out what should be obvious to everyone--you can lead a kid to healthy food, but you can't make him eat it.

    It is still bizarre to me, an outsider, to see that, in a state that prides itself in self reliance and personal responsibility, it is somehow the schools' job to provide lunch. Why can't kids brown bag it, and shut down this entire discussion. They can eat what their parents choose to send them with no government interference.

    Like many cases, had local districts and schools been fulfilling their responsibilities then the federal government wouldn't have to step in.


    Local schools and districts had their shot!

    A few things. School lunch has NEVER been all that good. Its a ongoing punch line for bad food jokes. Secondly, students are not diverse in their nutritional needs. We are all human and require the same nutrients.
    If I had a say, I would make actual good food, then go from there. As the basic tenant has yet to have happened.
