serial_crusher: I'm mostly ok with this, except for the 850 calorie cap. Student athletes need to get through the day, then attend practice after school every day. with lunch capped at 850 calories, there's going to be a lot of bonking going on, or a lot of snacking on junk food just to keep your calories up.

Goimir: What troubles me most is the lowfat milk. Kids need fat for brain development.
jjorsett: Bring your lunch. Better yet, eat it at your home-school.
pla: Wow.I never really saw the point in buying school lunch, when I could go home and have "real" food less than two hours later anyway. As the irony there, I did so because I didn't want a lunch completely composed of fats and carbs and more or less devoid of any nutrients other than salt (and I love salt, make no mistake).So, what have they done here?

brobinson2001: Don't 99% of all dietary programs for losing weight cut carbs and increase protein? Who the fark thought this up?
keytronic: Such a stupid policy.And here's why: if we were really concerned with childhood obesity, we would not be obsessively limiting their grain intake during lunch. We put some emphasis on healthier fare, but more importantly we would put more emphasis on getting them off their fat lazy asses to exercise.There is nothing wrong with a 15 year old kid eating a 1000 calorie lunch and burning 500 of those calories after school exercising.We have an obesity problem in this country because after-school athletics are on a severe decline.And our helicopter parenting has decided that it's better for a 10 year old to sit in house and play video games rather than take their bicycle outside to explore.This is why we're fat, not because of f**king croutons!
