I happen to LOVE hummus & warm pita, BUT I also grew up w/ it. If you’re a kid & have never eaten that kind of food it is going to be disgusting to the majority of kids. Throw in the peer pressure that says it’s disgusting & even the small group who do like it might feel compelled to pretend otherwise.

I work at an elementary school & they crazily give the pre-K kids the same amount of food at lunch as the growing & BIG 3rd grade boys & girls. It makes no sense. We should just go back to parents making their kids lunches, but we have created such a nanny state that many kids would have nothing as their parent would be outraged at being asked to actually do a parental task such as making a school lunch.

Actually, working at a public school for the first time is what turned me conservative on many issues. Sad, but true!

It was on Drudge but I don’t see it there anymore. . .maybe I missed it. I can’t believe that it hasn’t gone viral. It is really well done! It certainly isn’t healthy for the athletes especially to be on such a low calorie diet.

Spread the word on this video. Let’s have some sanity in this country!!!!!!

I remember when Pizza was first served at our school back in 1963. Most of the kids threw it away as they never heard of it.

Our school served good food. You could even go back for seconds. The only school that served bad food, and I mean REALLY BAD, was Aztec NM back in 1956. Many of the kids threw up, even me. I then began to take my own lunch and mom made some real good lunch meat sandwiches.

I never liked the food from school. Probably why I can’t stand pizza, spaghetti and a few other foods.

I always brought my food.

I too grew up eating just about anything and will eat most things.

But, whatever that taste is in cafeteria food I can’t stand it.

BTW, had humus, falafels and a the inside of a real nice koubby.

No one makes em better than “Falafel Drive in”. They’ve been around every since I can remember and I recall the day my Dad took me for the 1st time. My thought it was weird, I loved it.
