Florida school district is considering a plan to install surveillance cameras on cafeteria trash cans to monitor what kids are throwing away after they discovered that students were tossing out their federally-mandated fruit and vegetables.
The Lake County School Board said more than $75,000 worth of vegetables have been thrown in the garbage. The veggies and fresh fruit are party of the Obama administrations policy to force schools to provide healthy produce in lunch rooms.
Its fairly specific recipe of what they would like us to serve, Lake County School Board member Tod Howard told Fox News. Unfortunately, much of it has to do with fresh fruit and vegetables and it seems to be going into the trash. And thats not okay.
So Howard suggested the district attach security cameras to the trash cans to monitor exactly what is being thrown away.
It will also give us documentation so that we can go back to the federal government and say heres what we are finding, he said. We do know theres an issue.

The next illogical step Moochelle will push for is force feeding these kids like a bunch of babies.
You will eat this!! Zeig heil!
Why wouldn't you just look into the trash cans after lunch period instead of recording and paying someone to watch hours of trash can video? Just a thought from someone who would have to help pay for this nonsense.
Here’s a crazy idea. Kids, eat your ****** vegetables! You can have your McDonald’s when you get home.
No wonder we are a nation of fatties. Fat parents are not teaching kids how to eat properly and are raising fats kids.
It’s a cycle of abuse.
Kids should wear Moochelle masks when doing it.
EAT zose VEGETABLES, comrade, or Mother Russia vill VIPP you!!!/s;)
Good idea! One Cafeteria Lady to dump the can and sort things out, and another with a clipboard to write it down.
Cheaper than a camera plus analyst.
I don’t think it’s any of the gov’t’s business if the kids or the parents are fat. When you start saying that parents are not feeding their children “properly”, you’re opening a big can of worms where the gov’t gets to tell families how to raise their kids.
That ends in BITS.
Your comment is kind of random, as it doesn’t really have to do with the political premise of the article nor the likely reason the poster posted it. One could imply you think the premise of forcing certain foods on kids is good policy.
To a point of fact;
My parents and I all have “ideal” BMIs and always have- it is just natural based on inefficiency of metabolism.
I eat like crap and always have and I don’t gain a pound. I’m 5’10 and 153lbs at 31, the ratio has held since 5th grade.
Same with them for their respective height weight.
Get a grip and a clue, making rules and forcing options assuming the worst or based on the people with the worst case scenarios doesn’t work in a free-society-IN ANY CONTEXT.
It is thoughts and mind-sets like that that always accompanies the onset of totalitarianism.
Good Grief! Sure, parents of fat kids should teach them the impact their food choices has on them, what that has to do with forced school food choices in a free society I haven’t the foggiest.
They just need to set up a fresh uneaten fruit recycling center right next to the trash can, where untouched fruit can be given back.
Heck you could even pay them a dime or something for each thing.
Trash-cams are so invasive. Can’t some enterprising anthropology or sociology student go through the trash for free and make a thesis out of this?
And children in India starved just because we didn't eat our carrots. God was not only vengeful about wasting food, He also had very, very bad aim with his vengeance.
Refuse the Federal money and then tell them to shove their mandate up their discharge shoot.
Gee, I guess I’ll just have to throw it in another trash can.
If your child attends public school, you have given the government control. It’s that simple.
Any kid who doesn’t want to be cammed always has the option of the floor under the table...
They could keep giving out the exact same veggies for weeks on end. The savings would be HUGE!
Ya got me again, John!
