The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on Friday proposed major changes to school lunches in an attempt to make the meals healthier, with particular emphasis on reducing sugar and salt.
I see both sides of this.
We are talking about public schools. Centgov, having taken control, has a say?
Centgov and its intrusive “agencies” is frequently a disaster looking for a school to happen in. Given the current state of public education, the utter failure it is, many would resent filurther intrusion.
Hell no. If it were up to the local school officials, the kids would already be eating better. They’re able to go the extra mile on a few things as it is (the lunch ladies there are severely awesome), but it’s not enough, and they don’t need any further arbitration by people who don’t even cook their own food.
The current slop is barely acceptable as it is, so if the schools here start serving prepackaged meals, mine will be bringing their lunch to school. Even the mere sound of “prepackaged school meals” is gross. lol
