Boycott?! I remember that all the skinny kids simply gave the fat kids the stuff they didn't want or didn't eat off of their tray. Everyone was happy.

I remember getting pissed off when I'd only get served three tater tots.
 
2012-09-19 09:27:58 AM  
It's because everyone's tired of you all being a bunch of fatties.
 
2012-09-19 09:51:57 AM  
Things have come a long way since I was a kid. Why, I remember the first time they felt the need to start regulating a child's lunch. The mayor decided that the cafeterias couldn't serve cups of lard bigger than 16 ounces. Now you can't even get lard.

Bring your own lunches, you ninnies.
 
2012-09-19 11:05:34 AM  
Lunches were OK when I was in school until they decided to renovate an older part of the school. They found a WWII shelter stocked with supplies and for the next two years we got green beans from 1943 and our parents got a tax cut.
 
2012-09-19 11:05:48 AM  
Yeah, because 850 calories for lunch isn't enough to maintain the body weight of 70% of the school population.*


* probably a true statement.
 
2012-09-19 11:07:03 AM  
can't they bring a lunch? Or is this one of those free lunch for the poor things? If it is, be grateful you get anything at all. And tell your parents to get a job.

Bring whatever you feel you need to supplement your close-to-free lunch you whiny-ass shiats!

Students at a southeastern Wisconsin high school are boycotting cafeteria food over what they say is a federally-mandated one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition.


Objecting to Michelle Obam's lunch program is racist.

A lunch boycott was organized at Ferguson Junior High, in Arlington TX, in 1968 because the cafeteria would run out of food almost every day and was cutting portions to "stretch" what they had. It was organized by some of the "troublemaker" types who used some strongarm tactics to "encourage" support of the boycott. Things got rowdy. To his credit, the principal asked for a student representative and the student government president was elected to the role by acclaimation; he articulated our complaints and demands clearly. Astonishingly, the administration listened to us and punished no one; lunches got better. It was an amazing and memorable event to participate in for this 8th grader.

I wish these kids similar results, but it looks like the derp is strong among the school administration.

That is what it was in elementary school for me. One time when we had toasted ham and cheese sandwiches a kid had seven of them, mainly because he wanted the ham in it.

I can not believe a school would serve a pork product. That would be insulting to certain religious groups and cause dangerous riots.

A football player is instigating this, saying that he needs more calories than other students. Technically true, so the school will just slash more funding from non-essential programs like music, science, math, etc. to pay for a few dozen jugs of Weight Gain 4000.

This was in a farming area in Central PA, some religious groups are extremely rare where I live, and this was also in the late 1990s before people freak out about the tiniest things.

In my High School the band had a better record than the football team.

/The football team went 3 years without a win.
//5 guys who could have been a great O-Line played for the drum line instead of the Football team, those guys were HUGE and not fat at all.

I wonder how those 850 calories are served. 850 calories of square pizza, fries and cheese curds is not filling.

Back when I was in high school we'd go out for lunch and have fast food or 7-11 burritos and Mt Dew. Times have changed

We were allowed 2 milks, most everyone only drank 1, so they would line up the extras and a couple of kids would have a chug contest. Very rarely did someone puke.

I try not to be some raving anti-Obama maniac but this may actually come back to bite him in a way they didn't predict. It smacks of Hillaryism. Absolutely everyone I know is pissed off about this thing. I don't even know a lot of details but all 4 of my kids come home and complain they didn't get anything to eat. Any EVERYONE is blaming Michelle Obama. Now I don't know how much direct control she has but clearly she is taking credit/blame for it. I thought hey the garden is a great idea. So is the exercise campaign and the anti-fat thing but my kids are all normal size and eat well. She somehow got some regulations through that reduce the amount of protein served at a meal in school. We pay for our lunches but she of all people must realize that school lunch is often the only decent meal most kids get each day. How is it she has the authority to just wave a hand and make it so? Hillary's original health care plan didn't piss people off nearly as much as the fact that it was her (unelected) that was ramming it through. The people I know are confused why some seemingly random individual wields such total power over things that are better left to experts. By dictating these changes she effectively has said nobody else all the way through the system has any idea what they are doing and she knows best and is going to enforce it.

I can't even figure out through what mechanism she can do it. Which agency? Clearly they get to appoint the heads of these agencies but how can these things get changed without any oversight? When I say EVERYONE is pissed I mean conservatives, liberals, independents, poor, rich, etc. I haven't met anyone with elementary age kids who isn't livid about it.

According to a weekend report by the Los Angeles Times, the city's "trailblazing introduction of healthful school lunches has been a flop." In response to the public hectoring and financial inducement of Mrs. Obama's federally subsidized anti-obesity campaign, the district dropped chicken nuggets, corn dogs, and flavored milk from the menu for "beef jambalaya, vegetable curry, pad Thai, lentil and brown rice cutlets, and quinoa and black-eyed pea salads."

But in practice, the initiative has been what L.A. Unified's food-services director Dennis Barrett plainly concludes is a "disaster." While the Obama administration has showered the nation's second-largest school district with nutrition awards, thousands of students voted with their upset tummies and abandoned the program. A forbidden-food black market - stoked not just by students, but also by teachers - is now thriving. Moreover, "principals report massive waste, with unopened milk cartons and uneaten entrees being thrown away."

Food contractors for cafeterias have it written into the contract that kids aren't allowed to leave school for lunch, and it approved under the guise of "its safer because the kid could be hit by a car!" I'm not even joking.

Okay, so the football player is able to afford being on the team, buying the uniform, travelling to other cities to play, and taking time he could spend working an after-school job in order to do practice. He is incapable of packing a couple extra pb&j's for himself... why, again?

Nice of you to lead in with the line about the LA Times as if it came from a reputable source, but that's an opinion piece my Michelle Malkin. It's hard to find a more biased source.

Tax Boy: The food here is terrible, and the portions are too small.


Actually, my daughter told me that, yesterday the veggie soup was actually edible. So..that's an improvement over last year.

I don't think school lunch is the problem. I think it's the crap stuffing the cabinets at home. Fast food for dinner every night. Lack of exercise.

My son is on the cross country team, plays soccer and rides his bike. 800 calories (for middle school) isn't enough. He takes a sandwich or an apple...something extra anyway.

He bought a lunch and the total included his. He was husky and a few months later blew a fuse and after being in a hospital for a couple of weeks he calmed down quite a bit.

Imagine children coming home from school with a newfound love for spinach, sweet potatoes and whole-wheat spaghetti. Hoping to turn many parents' dreams into reality, the Obama administration unveiled new school meal standards (PDF) on Wednesday as the First Lady looked on approvingly.

In high school I was growing and running track and playing basketball, I couldn't eat enough. Maybe sizing school lunch portions for athletes isn't the best way to do it?
