ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (AP) One student complains because his cafeteria no longer serves chicken nuggets. Another gripes that her school lunch just isn't filling. A third student says he's happy to eat an extra apple with his lunch, even as he's noshing on his own sub.
Leaner, greener school lunches served under new federal standards are getting mixed grades from students piling more carrots, more apples and fewer fatty foods on their trays.

Nanny State PING!
The fascists in the nanny state love them, everyone else hates them so of course “its a mixed grade”
No it’s an epic fail
they better worry more about educating the kids.
Thanks for the ping!
During the waning days of WWI Germany would have “days of fasting” to mask the fact that their population was starving to death; Michelle Obama is simply getting us accustomed to having less (and pretending it is for the common good, while it is “draggin’ that wagon”).
I guess the government will have to resort to intravenous feeding if the little snots don't comply. /s
My kids pack THEIR lunch. Period. If the nannies don’t like it.....tough $hit.
One day, my youngest wanted to buy his friend a water (on his meal money which we had topped up). The “Lunch Lady” (Gestapo) said that he couldn’t do that.
I was LIVID when he told me. It’s OUR, damned money!!!! He can feed the frikkin’ WORLD if he wants.
The good thing about tyranny is that I get to laugh at all the suckers who suddenly feel betrayed when it turns on them.
My friend’s sister is a lunch lady at the local high school, and she was ready to tar and feather Moochelle.
The first thing they did was take out the salad bar.
The second thing they did was take out the potato bar.
They are no longer allowed to use salt and pepper.... only approved by the government spices..... which hadn’t arrived by the start of school. So they were serving naked ugly veggies.
The kids can get a prepackaged salad if they want..... with 1 (count them.... 1) extra veggie. So, they can have lettuce and carrots, or lettuce and cucumber, or lettuce with tomato.... not lettuce with all three. And the cooks are absolutely forbidden to add cheese to the salad. The kids beg them, and they cannot. So the kids are taking their prepackaged salads and dumping them in the trash at the end of the service line. They aren’t even pretending they will eat them.
Tell me how this is an improvement.
“Tell me how this is an improvement.”
It isn’t,of course,but it makes our first lady feel superior to the rest of the ignorant parents who don’t know better.
I packed lunches for my five and gave them what I knew they would eat. It was usually PB&J,Baloney and cheese,and occasionally tuna.They never got potato chips because I didn’t buy them,but an oreo cookie or chocolate covered graham tasted good with the milk.
If the “new” lunches are allegedly healthier but are not eaten what on earth is being accomplished but wasting food?
My kids now feed their children the same way I did-—give them what they will eat.No obesity in the kids or grandkids either.
By the way,I am also called Grammy.
Anyone who thinks kids are fat because of school lunches or that healthier menus will make kids less fat is a Morin. This is rank Do Somethingism. The real reason kids and USians in general are fat is:
A. we’re rich (less tan recently, but relative to most of humanity through all of history) and can therefore afford more food than we need and less moving around than is healthy;
B. fattening food tastes better, and loafishness is easier than doing stuff;
C. consumerism, the welfare state, the Godless pursuit of pleasure, or whatever you think is to blame has rendered us less civilized, more shortsighted, and increasingly prone to live for the present, which means we’re lazy, act to feel good fast, and don’t plan for the future.
I’d like to see school lunches fix that!
I went to school from 63 to 76.
All 4 kids in family are 170 lbs. or less to this day..
It’s obvious your family didn’t receive the current level RDA of GMO,LOL
A saltine cracker was my “Junk Food”. We had cookies. The 1960’s Shop-Rite brand sucked. I never ate them. Saltines were better to me. My brothers ate the Shop-Rite junk cookies. I loved the old school saltines in quarters then. My parents never got us Oreo Cookies.
My son played outside linebacker in high school and 2 years of college. High school practice was 2 hours in the morning and 2 in the afternoon for 3 weeks before season started. After a huge dinner at night he would take a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread and a jar of peanut butter, sit in front of the TV and consume every bit of it. Couldn’t keep the weight on. He’s a middle aged adult now but still works out or runs daily, has given up the after dinner meal but has never been overweight.
People can generally eat what they want but do need to be active. Need to bring back gym class in schools and allow games like kickball again on the playground.
Personally, I’m just trying to grow taller. If I’m successful, it will solve all my problems.
Insert YOUR favorite vice anywhere in a Libtards ‘logic’ about what is good for you and how you should live, because they’re coming for YOU next!
We warned you. First it was the smokers, then it was the fatties and now it’s our kids. Notice how they never pester the perverts or pedophiles, though, and try to regulate abhorrent behavior? Interesting...
It is never, I repeat: NEVER about what the Left is telling you it’s about!
We are slowly, incrementally being boiled alive like frogs in a pot...
