Pizza Is a Vegetable? Congress Defies Logic, Betrays Our Children

Commented Dec 31, 2011 at 14:45:25 in Home

“I was hardly encouraging parents to feed "this crap" to their children. The point of my comment was that we as parents are responsible for what goes into our children's mouths and if you dislike what the school is offering, pack a lunch! As for "we're talking school lunches here. If there are no healthy choices available at lunch, what are the odds that your kids will somehow manage to eat a healthy meal even if they wanted to?" BY PACKING A LUNCH. As an adult, it is your responsibility to teach your children to make healthy choices and to understand the consequences of eating, for example, school cafeteria "crap".”

Pizza Is a Vegetable? Congress Defies Logic, Betrays Our Children

Commented Dec 28, 2011 at 11:09:17 in Home

“C'mon, people! We grew up eating this crap when we were kids and we're just fine! Most of those crazy ingredients are preservatives so the food doesn't spoil as quickly... yes, it's not the best of choices to ingest, but if you don't like it, don't feed it to your kids! Ultimately, aren't YOU parent? Isn't it YOUR responsibility to teach your child to make healthy choices?”

“"We grew up eating this crap" is hardly a good reason to continue to feed it to our children.

Did I grow up with bad school lunches? Yes. Then again, I also grew up with a stay-at-home mom who forced us to eat decent meals the rest of the week and kept a close eye on the snack foods that we ate. I was lucky enough to grow up with a dad with a better-than-average salary that could afford to buy something besides the massively over-produced but cheap products that are the staples of so many diets today. Even better, I grew up with parents from a small town/rural area that planted a garden everywhere we lived so that fresh vegetables were simply a fact of life.

And "if you don't like it, don't feed it to your kid"? We're talking school lunches here. If there are no healthy choices available at lunch, what are the odds that your kids will somehow manage to eat a healthy meal even if they wanted to?”
