The schools are loony no money on the deal! The taxpayers are losing the money!
1. Even kids who pay full price (not reduced or free) for their lunches are receiving subsidized food. Each meal costs more to produce than it does to sell at “full price.”
2. That money is mandated for lunches; therefore, the $300K could not have been saved and sent on something worthwhile. The students throw away the food and the superintendent has to keep supplying the same ood instead of purchasing new text books.
3. Making my children eat healthy food isn’t sadistic. It’s called being a parent. The district in which I teach recently went through a rape trial that became an international issue. Several of my coworkers are being investigated by the grand jury for their alleged role in that rape and potentially another rape coverup. I’ve seen first hand what happens when parents want to be friends with their kids (buy them alcohol and turn a blind eye to casual sex) because they want their kids to be popular. That war starts at home and part of that battle is mommy fixes what we like to eat, which is also healthy, so eat your food please. If I allow them to dictate their own gastronomical desires to me at their young ages, how will they treat me when they are teenagers?
they are going to hate you
if they don’t have some choices, they will rebel big time
letting them eat what they want is an easy way to give them choices
you will need it
