  • Donald Trump has left behind a Trail of Bankruptcies, Thousands of Lawsuits, Contractors who feel cheated, the poor working class man who feels cheated, military who feel cheated. And he’s going to make America great again.Heaven help US. Lets keep America obese again.
    Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.

  • Back when I went to school we had healthy foods but we chose if it will go on our tray and at times they had different variety, but on Fridays they would have a special item on the lunch menu it would be pizza, ice cream bar or something else. I don’t remember if everyone was able to get that item or it was based on how well we did in that week.

  • At least it will reduce the amount of food thrown in the trash. Honestly, it doesn’t matter what you give kids in school, it’s not 100% of their daily consumption and either way they have the choice to eat what is served or buy a burger instead

  • This is a little dishonest. The other major change was calorie restriction. So you had all these athletes (and taller students) who were starving from calorie deprivation.

  • I work at a school in CA and it kills me to see how much food is thrown away!! If you give them healthy choices IT DOESN’T MATTER!!! The kids won’t eat it. They are forced to put the other foods on their plate but all They eat is the hamburger, pizza, nachos, and everything else goes in trash. Whole uneaten bananas, apples, strawberries, kiwi, oranges, melons all in the trash. salads, spaghetti, vegetables, rice dishes in the trash. My school district would rather dump it in the trash than let teachers eat it or let students take the fruits home. Whole cartons of unopened milk trashed. Kids get muffins in the morning some days and the kids will drink the chocolate milk and dump the unopened muffins in trash. IT IS SICKENING!!!!!Our kids today don’t care they get food at school free and no one cares if most ends in trash

  • i have the solution.. get rid of the school bus.. that saves more money for food and without a bus the kids burn off the calories by walking home.. live to far away from school you say.. got a idea for that too.. get em a bike..

    personally i liked my school lunches.. that breakfast pizza was the beast!

  • When I lived in California at my high school the only option served everyday was chocolate milk a rubbery chicken sandwich and an unripe orange

  • I think 80’s and 90’s was fine with the food we had, forcing us to eat healthier is an option. We still had veggies and fruit on our tray at school. We had drinks and snack machines and they bandit from the school.We use to sell candy in the schools and now its restricted because of the Obama nutrition act. I have nothing against them, but it was fine when i was 9 and my kids say the food tasted better then, then now before they changed it. They don’t like to eat breakfast or lunch sometime at school. I brought my child school lunch and put a extra snack in there and a teacher was criticizing her because she was trying to teach her portion control, and not make her eat it, i put an extra snack in her bag. She said it wasn’t fair to the other students. Because they didn’t have extra portion, and i told her it was none of her business, it was healthy things in there and edible.

  • Everybody here is oblivious to the fact that we dont even eat the school lunch, we throw it away. Its alot better to get rid of the food instead of starving ourselves.

  • Dude these rules were never even a thing at my school in the first place. My school lunches never changed during Obama administration, if anything the food got more unhealthy wtf… I don’t like trump but he isn’t doing anything by pulling this back because they didn’t do anything to begin with.
