    I grew up eating in the cafeteria at school....that shit is in no way healthier than what the mother sent to school with her daughter.
    Apparently it's someone's job to monitor the kids' lunches.

    The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs — including in-home day care centers — to meet USDA guidelines. That means lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.

    Now the problem I see with this, is that under these guidelines, the inspector would also turn away a lunch of a child packed by an educated and diet conscious mother who doesn't want her kid eating meat or milk. So I could send my little girl (who is now 17 BTW) to school with an organic sprouted wheat, alfalfa, and avocado sandwich, a bottle of Zephyrhills water, and an organic apple and her lunch wouldn't meet the FDA requirements which are bought and paid for by agribusiness to included meat and milk.

    BTW, I did get into trouble one time at school because I wouldn't drink milk in sixth grade. They called my mother and she told them to stick it.

    You never answered the most important part of the question, WHY is it ok to force kids to eat that food?

    the law is shit, thats my point. It's not their business, period. I do agree with you on the USDA, they are a bunch of jackasses too.

    This is not one of those times.
    Calling it ridiculous may get you approval from your fellow moonbats, but it doesn't make it go away. Having the freedom to eat one's food of choice is still one we have left. This small but significant story is a small but significant example of freedom being chipped away.

    Imagine if instead it was a black child simply being told to sit somewhere away from the white kids. A small event yes, but you would hear howls of indignation coming from it. Sorry dude, Alinsky isn't an impenetrable shield.

    I heard the The Battle Hymn of the Republic when I read that. Brought a tear to my eye.
