    How about federal government just get out our local schools!

    We do not need or want their micromanagement no matter their self believed good intentions.

    Then make your kids a home lunch. This is what I don't get about conservatives, you constantly hear how the government needs to get out of their lives. But they also are in an uproar about school lunches. You realize that buying your kid a school lunch is inviting the government into your life right? I know that if you just make your kid a lunch(or have them do it themselves if they are older) than you can't blame Obama. But it's not like you are forced to buy it. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Problem solved.

    MAY be winning students over? The use of "may" doesn't sound like the most solid of arguments. In fact, I would challenge Nicole Shepard to actually interview local students, lunchroom employees and district employees. Portion sizes of main dishes have decreased. They have increased fruit and vegetable servings and thus, the increase in consumption of fruits and vegetables. Traditional school meal dishes have been replaced with things like hamburgers/hot dogs on wheat buns. Batter used for corn dogs or chicken nuggets contain wheat substitutes and/or additives. If anything kids are forced to eat their fruits and vegetables because of the poor quality of main dishes. My children come home hungrier than ever before and binge to feed their growing bodies. Their complaints about school lunches have definitely increased are they're NOT being won over as Ms Shepard's article eludes to. This MAY be an article based on a very biased report.
