It is shameful that the folks in Congress busy themselves with passing "Big
Nanny State" legislation on trivial issues like this, but cannot figure out
that we are broke and that their spending trillions of dollars we do not have
will be far more harmful to kids than letting them eat whatever they want.And, thus far, the "healthier school food" programs have been
colossal failures every where they have been tried.Maybe if we
locked Congress in the Capitol and only fed then the "new school lunch"
diet, until they get to important issues, we might improve things.
I am seeing something being omitted from this failed concept, nutrition and
parents rights. Then of course there are religious rights being violated as well
making it an unconstitutional act. No processed food is nutritious
and it all lacks the nutrients that the bodies of children need so they are
never full or satisfied so the are continuous eating machines trying to find the
food that their bodies are craving. What adults and children need for nutrition
are not the same and no doctor or nutritionist has the godly ability to
prescribe the needs of 200 million children on a 4 hour daily basis.Nutrition is as individual as minds, and no child should be subjected to this
kind of abuse by our government. Parents and heritage are a dietary basis to
properly get nutrients. Besides, new studies indicate that being hungry
stimulates the mind and learning and health.Schools and education
are not entitled or authorized to feed and force unnatural marginal over
processed food on my children. It is the parents right and duty to feed their
children, education has enough problems trying to deal with making kids smart
and maybe they should focus on that.
Remember when parents raised their children?I'm sure many feds
drink alcohol, and eat french fries. As for me, I'll decide
what my kids eat.
