Ignore post # 41. For some reason, I posted on the wrong thread.
Ah, that explains it.
You cannot force someone to eat what disgusts them.
I love all veggies, today, as an adult. As a kid, I spent hours sitting at the table with the stewed tomatoes from the soup still in my bowl. I hated them. I could not gag them down. I would not gag them down. I did not, either. It was a texture thing. Finally, it would be late enough that my parents gave up. It was years before I could tolerate tomatoes that were neither fresh nor made into a sauce.
Children have different tastes than adults. I never had a chicken nugget as a kid and I tasted pizza for the first time at 14. I had the parental model that is being put forward by the government. I still knew what I liked and what I didn’t and I would not eat anything I didn’t like. Period.
“Hey, nannies! Leave the kids alone!”
Nonetheless, it will be a good idea to get a receipt when they go to the john.
Coping what San Antonio did last year.

Maybe if the kids ate their veggies then throw up in the cafeteria trash can......
LOL! The message of the "Occupy" noodles is so confused already that protesting a healthy diet would fit right in. I'm getting confused just thinking about it!
You have a safe and happy Wednesday!
“School cafeteria veggies are usually boiled to mush and get worse sitting on steam tables.”
And that’s the real problem with Americans and vegetables in general: most Americans don’t know how to cook vegetables properly.
The school cafeterias probably couldn’t beat the kids off with sticks if they cooked up delicious Chinese stir-fries and Indian curry dishes that consisted of a medley of mostly fresh vegetables with bits of chicken or beef. How about Saag Paneer? Totally healthy, totally delicious.
“The hammer will really come down after the carrot-tossers figure out how to dispose of the vegetables by other means. “
Indeed. Wrapped up in paper napkin wads, carefully concealed in empty milk containers, surreptitiously thrown under the table, or scrapped onto an unsuspecting, dimwitted classmate’s tray.
This is sooo funny, and takes me back to the days when I was in Elementary school 50 years ago.
We had the stereotypical evil lunch ladies, who made you take everything they dished out, then checked to make sure you ate at least some of every item. It didn’t take us long to figure ways around it. We stuffed uneaten food in napkins, or milk boxes.
The more things change the more they remain the same - - except that in our day there were real live consequences to breaking rules. Maybe that is the thing our children need more than any other thing.
Well this Todd Howard sells computer hardware in the area.
I’m all for healthy eating but not if its force-fed by our “betters”. Makes me want to give each of these poor kids a big bag of candy. Kids can sense these bullies. They know they can’t reason with the Mooshill mob, so they’ll have to compensate by creative disposal methods such as you describe.
You know that the students who are budding patriots (and the rightful heirs to America) will be the most creative, even “in your face” about it. Carrots “hiding” in the teachers’ pencil holders... lettuce leaf bookmarks in the teachers’ answer books... attack of the killer tomatoes... celery boats filled with pea-people refugees floating in the teachers’... well you get the idea. :)
Hey, nannies! Leave the kids alone!
Our Great Mother Moochelle will be pleased with this action.
Nanny State PING!
Thanks for the ping!
The evil teenager in me has so many ideas for things to put in front of those cams. lol
Have some MO lunch!
Just assign a monitor to stand by the trash cans with a clipboard and evaluate whether the child has finished their vegetable medley sufficiently and if not, find out why not, record their names, and if a repeat offender, give them information as to why they should eat their vegetable medley along with their pig in a blanket and potato surprise.
