It's so awful for kids to have to eat vegetables and fruits instead of junk.

the humanity.

In the school where I work, the cafeterias can't sell junk.  Nevertheless, there are perpetual fundraisers which consist of kids doing a thriving business selling candy bars and doughnuts.  (Some kids do fundraising for themselves as well!)

It's like real life.  Contraband is readily available and overseers turn a blind eye.

Do your hands ever get chapped and sore from all that constant wringing?

My work doesn't put whiskey in the fridge even though they know goddamn well I'm going to get plastered.

Or.. you know .. not in the fridge. I'm not sure why I said in the fridge. Maybe it's the plastered thing.

When I was in high school they pulled out all the vending machines, so of course the Clubs provided for the need.  DECA even had their own candy counter in their classroom.

We had bad fish sticks, fries and and stale white bread and butter.  Oh, milk and all the tartar sauce you wanted..

Back in my day (Reagan era) we had pop machines...but they were turned off during the day.  You could buy like drumstick ice cream and cookies at the cafeteria but had to buy a lunch first.  It was the era of Clinton when this all went downhill...what with the candy and the sugar and the sex and rock and roll.

What about candy apples?

The site goes on to add that the Smart Snacks in School rules don't apply to foods brought from home or to special occasions, including "birthday parties, off-campus fundraisers, athletic events and school plays or foods sold during non-school hours (30-mins after school)."

The little pissants will get over having to bring in their own junk food instead of having educators serve it to their precious little asses.

Twenty some years ago my friends ran a candy racket out of their lockers.  They'd go to whatever was before Costco and buy boxes, then sell things for a quarter.  They made a surprising amount of money.

/got in trouble for breaking into their locker and holding the candy bag for ransom

This will only serve as a mild annoyance.  It'll generate more revenue for every pee-wee baseball team/girl scout troop/and _____ fund raising group that uses small children as free labor to sell their goods.  No .50 cent candy in the vending machine means kids will pay $1.00 for the fund-raising candy.

Then you'll have kids like myself who will spend $25 on candy and stock their locker and make a tiny profit selling red vines to kids in the cafeteria.

This is stupid.
But I sure hope we can spend lots and lots of money poorly enforcing it.  Maybe we can get some kids arrested and ruin their lives over a candy bar, that'll get the rest of the mindless sheep to fall in line.

Forcing someone to do something is not an effective solution.  It'll only make not doing it that much more appealing.

When I first heard about banning junk food, my first thought was "It's too bad I don't live next to the middle school anymore where I could turn candy bars into profit."  I apparently wasn't the only one with a thought like that.

THIS. I keep on seeing RT headlines in Google Play News (or WTF it's called) on my phone. Rabble rousing on Ukraine. Propaganda BS.

If Mrs Obama only had these guidelines growing up, she might have had a 4 cylinder in her honda instead of a V8.

35% of weight from total sugars per item

Goodbye, Fruit Loops.  40% sugar means you're off the school breakfast menu.  Was that junk food?

Now if only people were as dedicated to making sure these kids were actually getting an education as they are dedicated to making sure kids have junk food at all times.

Won't somebody please think of the children? Oh... hmmm... Won't people please STOP thinking of the children?

So you have to leave school to get a candy fix. Yeah it's totally like Prohibition.

Of all the things the right complains about, the biatching about Michelle Obama's healthy eating initiatives make them sound the dumbest.

Government provides range of foods to students: Freedom!

Government provides different range of foods to students: Socialist Fartbama is controlling our kids!

So, 40+ years ago, when I was a kid, there were no vending machines in schools (not until the late 1970s, and then only in the high school locker rooms). As I remember it, there was a brisk business in lunch traders. Are kids still going to be allowed to bring in packed lunches? Are parents still going to include things like Hostess treats and home-baked goods?

Just an FYI - my mom's homemade stuff beat Hostess and Little Debbie every time.

When I was in high school, it was airport bottles and cocaine, but yeah, lets worry about junk food.
 
2014-04-13 01:33:26 PM
I guess they're more worried about keeping the snowflakes healthy (the parents job anyway) instead of teaching them.

Sure let's ban all the sugars! But keep using outdated textbooks and teaching methods and churn out idiots more often than not.

Yay progress!

The thing is 40+ years ago parents were expected to take care of their children.  Mom (or Dad) was expected to make sure their kids were eating enough, and that they packed a lunch.

Now, the expectation is put on the school.  My school district even had breakfast for the poor kids because, 'Hey, we can't expect their parents to feed them.'

When the government takes over healthcare, they will start telling us what to eat. And so it begins.
