Also, I can't believe some still insist they know nothing of first ladies' benevolent campaigns all through modern history to improve our country and its citizenry by example and volunteerism.
And offering anecdotal evidence most likely the result of poor cooking skills.
If the kids aren't eating relatively healthy food at home, what makes you think they will at a school lunch?

There is a yuge difference between feeding a growing kid a salad with low fat dressing (exaggerating for example's sake) and that same salad with a fun dressing, croutons, cheese on top. There is a difference between a sandwich with one slice of cheese, one slice of meat on a whole wheat bread dry, and a sandwich with mayo, mustard, a couple of extra slices of cheese and meat, maybe lettuce.

There are moderate roads to every destination. Add that to Get A Clue's correct statement about activity, and you can see a reduction in obesity, and food waste.

But it can only go so far, when the parents at home feed the kids crap pre-packaged synthetic chemicals without regard to carbs, calories or ingredients. Add atrocious snack foods, and the responsibility for a kids health is not based on one meal a day for 5 days a week, it is what is ingrained at home about how to eat, and what to eat.

The standard for evaluating Democrat programs is not results, it's intent. Nobody disagrees with healthier school lunches so any program that is proposed by Democrats is worthwhile and perpetual .

The school lunch program has lined trash barrels with uneaten food. Meanwhile childhood obesity continues to increase. Michelle Obama claimed she became alarmed over her children's weight gain so, her solution is a Federal program to enforce one size fits all regulations nationwide. That's fundamentally different from the approach used by previous first ladies, they used encouragement for instance to promote reading.
