Posted on 05/27/2014 6:38:43 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
On Tuesday, First Lady Michelle Obama is expected to fire back against school meal critics who say the program to make school lunches healthier has gone too far.
FOX 4′s Katie Ferrell reported Tuesday morning on the reaction from Kansas City-area parents to the more nutritious school lunches.
Among the comments:
The food provided as school lunch is not even edible. My 5-year old isnt picky and she cries if we accidentally forget to pack her lunch, said Jaye Anne on our facebook page.
Yes it motivates us to send actual healthy food from home so our child doesnt have to eat school lunches, said Jennifer Smith.

I know a certain 5 year-old who needs re-education.
Government media complex, government phones, government religions (proclaiming that all other faiths are “wrong” and homosexuality is NOT a sin and that it is a crime to persist in declaring it sinful)
Children are being starved because Michelle is fat.
Schools (the government) now harass parents who give their kids food to take to school.
Food. Sex education. Morals.
Little by little the schools (the government) is taking over control of the little minds. The ultimate goal is totalitarian control. We’re getting there.
I’m 65 I would not eat that crap served at school when I went to HS, why should our kids eat what is even worse.
I don’t eat hospital food either. Especially their liquid diets. Chem tasting jello, pop cycle, 1 inch of grease on over salted broth that smells the whole room up like some one let off a stink bomb. I drink the fruit juices when this occurs.
Hubby brings me food from home. I don’t care if it is just a turkey sandwich, it is NOT something I can’t eat, I can’t have soy, must be low sodium, and FAT is a NO go. I raid the nurses coffee.
As for pills I bring my own. And take them on MY schedule which my body is use to. Not their generic crap Synthroid. A 8 hr wait for a med is just not acceptable, when you need it 1 hr before any food or other meds when you first get up. And why should I pay 4 times the cost of a drug I already take and have, nor do they get control of them, I just don’t inform them I have them.
He who pays the piper, calls the tune.
Jr. takes his lunch, usually. There are a few days where he likes to eat the caf food - pizza day is one - but otherwise, he turns his nose up at it.
One time - once - this year, he wanted to go in early for the school breakfast. I told him "Sure", glad that he's willing to try new things. He said it was lousy, and he's not asked again. It's pretty hard to ruin fruit, pancakes and bacon, but they managed.
Sez me, what's the point to serving food that kids won't eat? Why bother?
What was on the menu? What was it she refused to eat? Boiled spinach?
baloney would be an upgrade
Yet another reason to homeschool.
Someone is making an enormous profit off of the crappy food being served, and taxpayers seem to be more than happy to pick up the tab.
Her parents too.
They seem to be under the delusion that they can pack a healthy lunch.
All the hospital food I have eaten was pretty good. But I was never a patient, only a visitor. But I will eat anything.
They got a little irritable when they found we snuck liquor into the room.
By law, the discards can’t be fed to pigs. What does that tell you?
Exactly. Did the government approve that packed lunch? That lunch could be a danger to the child.
Having a little too much freedom can be as bad as drinking a little too much gasoline. That’s science and you can’t argue with science.
My daughter had lunch with my granddaughter and grandson one day. She told me that she would not feed that crap to her dog. Her kids will not eat the food. So she packs them a lunch everyday.
When I was in school back in 1952-1964, all the meals were excellent EXCEPT those at Aztec, NM. Kids were constantly throwing it back up on their trays.
That slop was so bad even Micehlle’s would have been an improvement.
Ir was so bad it is still burned in my memory after 58 years. I had mom make me a lunch after I also threw that slop back up on my tray.
Absolute best was Denver Co.
No wonder Muslims don’t like pork.
Do What? And who the hell is we?
Left in the public school system she will be in just a few short years.
My 5-year old isnt picky and she cries if we accidentally forget to pack her lunch,
How do you forget to pack your child a lunch? Seems that is one of the items on
the primary check list of things to do.
These hive members are the creepiest of the creepy.
I can not remember one time that "we accidentally" ??? forgot to pack our kids lunch.
These people need a morning routine.
Solution: A prescription filled out by a family friend that is an MD that says he/she is on a special, medical diet. Give copies to principal, teacher, nurse and tell them to STFU about what is in his/her lunch.
“Healthy food from home?” I’d be packing her lunch with Twinkies, Little Debbies, and Coke. She could probably make a small fortune selling them on the black market.
I was going to ask, how does a person “accidentally forget” to pack her child’s lunch?
Struck me as odd too.
School lunch generally sucked, but Pizza and Spagets was
pretty darn good. We had a great lunch lady.
I call her Mom # 2 to this day
I remember our mystery meat hamburgers....I loved them! With lots of mustard.
Oh.. you gotta have mutard...
Mutard and horseradish! Mmm-mmm!
Heh! You oan hold the pate for me. I can eat mustard with a spoon...love it.
Little Debbie’s are not appropriate for school.
Ever had on of those Vietnamese Bahn Mi Sangwiches?.
They rub the foie gras on them, and it is the bomb!
I never have had one of those sandwiches. We’re small time around here....no Vietnamese restaurants so far, LOL. But I’ll keep an open mind if we ever get one.
Mister Mustard...I’ve seen that. I’ll have to try it. We love hot and spicy.
Any diet that doesn’t contain at a minimum 40% of calories from fat, and 25% of calories from saturated fat cannot be healthy.
You’ll like it, hard to believe it has no horseradish in it. It is HOT.
Thanks Michelle. Future voters for the constitution and freedom. What a gift we have in the o’s.
