You can pack a lunch for your kid. Problem solved.

"I want the government out of my children's food choices. This is ridiculous." The solution is easy, feed them yourself like you are supposed to. Its not the government's job to feed your children or mine or anyone else's.

A "bun" made with white flour has about the same nutritional value as a cookie or a brownie. Our country's health care crisis has become great because of poor choices; like everything made with white flour, sugar, corn, and corn-syrup. Lack of awareness about nutrition needs to be addressed and corrected if our country is to survive the health care crisis.

Don't be so defensive, your kid is better off only having one serving of white flour based bread at lunch. Even if it is that "nasty Michelle Obama's" fault, LOL!

Why are you relying on the school to feed your child? Send a bag lunch.

Chalk this one up as one of the silliest "blame it on the the mean old nasty Government" letters to the editor in a long Long while!

Haha, thanks for the laugh!

Where are you getting this stuff? Kids don't need to limit white flour.
What kids need to do is shut down the TV, computer, ipad, etc... and go outside and play tag, football, run-sheepy-run, steal the sticks, etc., after school.

Her suggestion is for kids to drink more water. Now, there's some sage advice.

@wrz
Yes some kids do. Everyone should be aware of what is in their food. Otherwise you are just purposely being ignorant. Which is fine for you, just don't teach your kids to be that way. In other words educate yourself on white flour and American obesity.
