I finally found someone else who has the same conclusion I have on this program. When I went to school, the food was good (tasting) and now it just plain sucks. My kids don't want to eat it half the time now, so I wonder what it will be like when they go "healthy." They are also getting rid of whole milk and 2% milk. Personally, I can't drink skim milk and I don't imagine most kids will want to either. They should offer water and maybe 100% juice too. (not something like Hawaiian punch which is all sugar)
Everyone else I talked to basically said I'm stupid and kids are fat now-a-days so this is the greatest thing ever. I'm stupid because some parents are lazy and refuse to take care of their kids properly? Newsflash: One healthy meal a day isn't going to reverse the effects of parents who stuff their kids full of McDonalds every night.
I'd like to think mine are taken care of and being raised right and not told to go watch tv or sit in front of the computer all day to get out of my hair. My kids are active and eat home cooked meals almost every night. We do outdoor activities such as camping, bicycling, swimming, walking. The kids play sports such as cheer leading/football, basketball, softball/baseball.
Then it's court ordered that they go with their grandmother every other weekend and holidays (she happens to work at a school, BTW.) There, they get to watch tv all weekend and are bored out of their mind. She has 4 different meals she "makes" which are fast food, sandwiches, popcorn chicken, or chef boyardee canned products (No trimmings, no fruits, no vegetables.) I'm pretty sure she makes home cooked meals for her and her husband but not enough for the kids. Heck, on Thanksgiving day the kids weren't allowed to even have a bite of turkey at their house because they made it to take to another relatives house for dinner.
Sorry, I got off topic -- it just fires me up!
