Posted on 10/03/2012 10:12:37 AM PDT by ColdOne
The federal government wants moms and dads to start serving meals at home that conform to the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
The USDA urged parents to help reinforce the new school guidelines by providing similar meals at dinner time.
We know that many parents are already making changes at home to help the whole family eat healthier, the USDA wrote on their official blog. We recommend reviewing school menus with kids at home and working to incorporate foods that are being served at school into family meals as much as possible

Now: We would like you to do it
Future: You will do it or be fined......woops,taxed.
Uh oh. So what’s next? Michelle’s food nazi gestapo agents going house to house and inspecting what parents are feeding their kids. I wouldn’t doubt it one bit. This is who and what these people are, after all.
And how do they propose to monitor and enforce compliance? Eh, Comrade?
How about the bloated bureacracy go on a diet instead?
How about Barry and Michelle police what their family eats, and my wife and I will do police our family eats. It’s freedom.
Let’s start by limiting items valid for EBT use to grains, vegetables, and fruit.
They could always do what they did with light bulbs, etc.: ban the state unapproved items.
There would be a black market in Fritos.
Nutritional compliance drones.
Were my parents so much smarter than some of those today? Or are "the most vulnerable among us" just lazy,stupid fools that look to DC for everything from food to cell phones?
We hear and obey! How did we survive before big gubmint told us what to do?!!!
Add protein and milk to that and you've got a perfect list.No chips,no lobster,no beer,no lottery tickets,no crack.After about 5 years of such a policy we'll no longer have the fattest "poor" people on earth.
MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS !
Here’s where they could start, and get no argument from me: Limit food stamp purchases to those items that are acceptable for the “healthy lunch” program menus.
now, when you have no job, because you live in the obamanation, while you are looking for food in the trash dumpsters behind restaurants and grocery stores, be very selective on what you pick up to feed your starving children.
big brother will hold you accountable. mooseshell will have a fit.
This directive from the USDA is meant to be sent to those people who receive food stamps. Most of them spend lavishly on potato chips, candy and sugary drinks. Instead of making healthy nutritious meals for their children, they feed them nothing but junk food. These are Obamas people who need to be taught how to dress, eat and speak.
Soon will come rationing cards to make sure people only buy the “right” foods.
Don't think they can't do it already.
Many newer televisions have built-in wifi. With the availability of wifi being so prolific and suspicions of back-doors being built into chipsets on most newer routers and modems, it should come as no surprise that they could monitor everything you do.
Think that camera attached your home desktop or on your phone is really turned off when you're not using it? How about the microphones in everything from your phone to your laptop to your Roomba? We've accepted technology with every fiber of our being, and as such, we've accepted the risks of being monitored by that technology that we THINK we control.
I’m trying to comply. Just this morning I had some thick backstrap fried rare in bacon grease and three eggs and toast.
Mine is. I have a plastic cover that goes over the lens when I'm not using it.

How, exactly, do they know this?
“The federal government wants moms and dads to start serving meals at home that conform to the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.”
Given present trends, how long before the Feds begin prosecuting?
WiFi cameras inside the fridge. RFID tags on everything in the pantry. It’s all in the technology.
May be a good reason to NOT use a shopping card and only use cash for purchases. IF these gestapo-lites are doing this to the schools now, wait until they control ALL of your health care next year.They’ll be having home food pantry inspections. The “prepper” stash won’t be for survival it will be filled with the goodies. Hide the good stuff. ;)
Mark my words (now I sound like Rush)...IF “they” are in control “they” will put a major tax on the “good stuff.”
We know how these people roll, don’t we? ;)
Freedom? Are you joking?
these people are insane!
Honey, yo' new BBQ recipe is fantastic!
These the best dog ribs I evah did eat!
Dear Leader will create a nation system of block captains to visit in the neighborhoods to see who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Probably will get the kids trained at school enough to rat out their parents too!
I HATE Commmiecrats! They are anal-retentive, control FREAKS who will take everything you have to buy votes with!
Tonight, we’re going to have hot dogs, Fritos, chocolate cake and Pepsi for dinner to celebrate the call of the federal government for healthier food.
Meddle with our cubs’ lunch at your own risk, big brother. I always packed my kids’ lunch, and if they lived at home now, I would certainly do so. That menu isn’t as bad as the old food pyramid, but it isn’t that much better, either.
As one who doesn’t eat processed food and such unless starvation is imminent, there doesn’t appear to be enough fresh meat (protein/brain food) in that new cafeteria diet. The veggies and fruit are fine as long as they are fresh, but it seems a bit heavy on the whole grains/carbs for my liking-any way you serve it, too many carbs=too many pounds.
With technology the Soviets never even dreamed of.
I posted this thought a long time ago but it seems I may not have been too paranoid.
The Government, under the rubric of Obamacare, will issue cards similar to SNAP or TANF for our food purchases. Under the guidelines of our wonderful Government doctors every month our food allowances will be placed on the card and then we will have to swipe those cards at the registers of the food markets/grocery stores whenever we purchase. You will not be allowed any food/snack purchase beyond what is placed on the card.
With the technology this Country could afford and develop when we were free the Government can rule every single aspect of our lives. Something the Soviets could not even dream of.
Mine was applewood-smoked ham and 2 pieces of home-made apple cobbler. And a big glass of chocolate milk to wash it down with :)
Absolutely we eat too much carbs...fruits vegetables and healthy meats and fats make us healthy.
the irony of all this is that it’s the feminist agenda that has contributed to obesity and poor nutrition of america’s children.
girls used to watch their mothers cook to learn how to make healthy and delicious meals for their families but liberal feminists have convinced women that being in the kitchen is akin to slave labor and should be avoided at all costs
if more women were home cooking meals then american children would be else obese
that being said.. I don’t want michelle O in my kitchen telling me what to cook. when was the last time she made a homemade meal from scratch? oh that’s right she has the white house kitchen staff...
“You will not be allowed any food/snack purchase beyond what is placed on the card.”
For that matter, a card would not be needed. A simple tattoo on the hand or forehead would do. /666
A better option would be limiting the food available for purchase with food stamps / SNAP to healthy items. For example, you can buy milk, bread, peanut butter, peas and potatos - but no Little Debby snack cakes, milk shake drinks or lobster.
You’d force lots of people to eat healthy, and it’s been an incentive to get off the dole.
Mandatory body fat measurements, weigh ins and recruitment of stool pigeon children at school.
16,000 MORE IRS agents... with guns.
But the fascist regulations wouldn’t be enforced on the people you’re referring to.
They are already under control. The point is to control those who don’t want to be controlled.
If you use a store discount card or a credit/debit card, then they know what you eat. With facial recognition, they probably know what you eat even if you’re using cash.
I suggest everyone wear disguises that hid your eyes and eyebrows, the corners of your nose, and the corners of your mouth (Groucho Marx glasses). Only use cash. Keep your cards and credentials in metal containers. Park your car around the corner.
Sounds paranoid I know, but people don’t understand how much data mining is happening NOW. The feds just have to tap into the existing marketing databases and security camera systems, for the sake of homeland security of course.
Parents want the federal government to start balancing their budget in a way that conforms to the Debt-Free Dave Ramsey plan.
I’d like to be able to say you’re paranoid, but I can’t. I don’t think most of us have an inkling of the amount of data gathered on each and every one of us.
