Sharing the Hunger: Kids get a taste of Federal Overlordship, and leave hungry


Edamame and sprouts replace normal kid food in decent portions.....

Quote:
According to Suzanne Perez Tobias of the Wichita Eagle, the law sets "calorie maximums for school lunches -- 650 calories for elementary-schoolers, 700 for middle-schoolers and 850 for high schoolers."

As a result, voracious children who once enjoyed the freedom to choose sloppy joes for lunch are now getting their first taste of oppressive government regulation. .....

....
Overseen by Mama Obama, the new school lunch program is but a mere foreshadowing of what America is in for when Obamacare kicks in. Along with stringent regulations and increased paperwork, the costs of the life-saving government-dictated provisions are sure to go up while the portions and choices will go down.

In the meantime, someone should inform the first lady that the "one-size-fits-all" menu she's hawking isn't fitting the caloric needs of different-sized kids growing at different rates, all with varying energy needs. As a result, many school children are spending the day anything but "hunger-free."

And of course the constant for powerful State elites and those riding the coat tails. Their kids do not go to the schools for the masses, or eat the foods mandated for them...
Quote:
In the meantime, Michelle Obama's daughters Sasha and Malia, who attend the exclusive private school Sidwell Friends, are free to enjoy classic Caesar salad, cheese and all, and pepperoni flatbread pizza. Just as in most dictatorships, the elites remain unaffected by the very government impositions they inflict on everybody else.
The little people, kids, are subject to onerous food rules..

Be sure to whine about the source and avoid the details....

So let's get this straight. Subsidized school lunches were introduced, because there was the hope that the kids would get at least one decent meal, and now they limit the calorie intake? Great!

But of course. Remember, schools, to the left are not places where kids learn to read write and do math. With parents shaping everything else.

They are presumed to be the conditioning centers for society itself where kids morals, values, and outlooks are shaped to serve 'the whole' (as determined by the State). It is where the 'damage' done by parents personal views are undone and overcome and those desired by the State are instilled. This extends all the way down to food choices and attitudes towards food, as we see. No detail is too small to ignore....from ideas on gays to economics to the role of individuals in society itself, they aim for completely shaping the worldview of kids by controlling what they are exposed to.

So now, what kids eat will be micromanaged down to the last calorie, and done regardless of what they actually want, which makes a bit of sense for younger kids but none at all for older ones who should be competent already. Of course, we'll be told this isn't the case, after all they regard nearly everyone as incompetent at the outset.

850 calories is more than enough for anyone for lunch. Heck, I don't even usually eat a lunch at all. If you need more than that then eat a better breakfast and dinner, or bring food from home. It's not the state's obligation to provide unlimited food or to make up the students' entire daily caloric intake. Besides that, lunchtime gluttony does not contribute to an alert mind during the school day.

I didn't know that you were still in high school school, and could be used as a yardstick, Gerald.

Anyway,

Males Aged from 14 to 30

A 14 to 18 year old male is estimated to need between 2200 and 3200 calories depending on activity level. A male between the ages of 19 and 30 should consume 2400 to 3000 calories per day, once again depending on activity level.
Even assuming that they didn't miss breakfast, which was the original stated purpose for subsidized lunches, that's over 1000 calories for lunch for anyone in HS sports.

Lunch does not need to provide 1/3 of the daily caloric intake. In any case, if an individual student thinks that is not enough their parents can always send food with them. Since when is it the job of the state to guarrantee that no person ever feels hungry? I get hungry every day by the time dinner comes around. Boohoo, poor fat kids gonna feel hungry at some point during the day.

I didn't know his point was that the state needs to provide an all-you-can-eat buffet to students. What do you have against parents having some responsibility for feeding their kids?

So you are saying to quit funding all the free meals for kids including those whose parents already receive foodstamps which should be sufficient to feed them?

Of course with the way things have gotten even sending a child to school with a good lunch doesn't meet the approval of the State:

"A four year old student in North Carolina was not allowed to eat the lunch her mother packed for her. Apparently her lunch was taken away from her because school officials claimed it was not healthy enough to eat based off of the USDA guidelines.
The young child brought a home-packed lunch to school containing a turkey sandwich, banana, potato chips, and an apple juice. A lunch inspector told the child she wasnít allowed to eat it and provided her with a USDA-approved lunch. The approved lunches meet the USDA guidelines that require one serving of meat, one serving of grains, and two servings of fruit or vegetables. The uneaten lunch was returned home with the child. Inside, the girlís mother found a note explaining that the lunch didnít meet guidelines and a bill for $1.25, the cost of the school lunch."

Someone should have gotten that bill for $1.25 as a suppository.

This topic was debunked in a number of old threads. The article is playing loose with the facts. There are no "Lunch Inspectors"
