Indiana school district loses $300K
because students refuse to buy
first lady’s healthy meals

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar

School officials in Carmel Clay, Ind., said they lost $300,000 last school year because students are rejecting the healthy menu changes brought on by First Lady Michelle Obama’s federal lunch regulations. “I’ve had a lot of complaints, especially with the little guys,” Linda Wireman, a food service director for North White School Corp., told JCOnline. “They get a three-quarters cup of vegetables, but if it’s something they don’t like, it goes down the garbage disposal. So there are a lot of complaints they’re going home hungry.” Amy Anderson, the food service director for the school district,

If it´s not corn or carrots most kids will refuse. The cafeteria staff at individual schools know best what their kids want. They aren´t out to poison kids. Let them decide the menu.

While Carmel has their "average" citizens it is a high income town north of Indpls. I know they are not happy with this situation as most schools aren´t. Once the beast gets her nose under the tent you are in trouble. Do you really think Greek yogurt is going to satisfy these kids? I say that the parents and kids need to stick it to the moose. Pack your lunches. Schools starts in two weeks. Lots of pretty new lunch bags are in the stores. Hit them were it hurts. In the pocketbook. On a good day most school lunches are okay at best. But since moose got a hold of them they are worse than ever.

When I was in Carmel schools, many moons ago, somehow the cafeteria had gotten too much canned pineapple. We had pineapple in everything, or so it seemed, and we boycotted the cafeteria and had the student council get involved. We students thought we won as the menu went back to normal. Maybe all of the pineapple had already been served. That was when life was good and there weren´t any Obamas lording it over everyone.

An excellent time to tell the yuts that the forced choice at lunch is a wonderful example of how a communist dictatorship operates. Everyone equal in their misery and hunger.

Should be stressed that the change was brought to them by Mrs. Hope and Change and the Demonrat party.

If the students don´t eat the veggies as they should the feds will have to find out why. That investigation will cost a few million $$ and recommend corrective action and increased propaganda.

Washington will then mandate a National Alternative Lunch Program be started to parallel the regular school lunches.

The alternative lunch will serve the veggies too.
Why? Because Washington knows best and students should eat the veggies. The science is settled.

How on earth did a non-elected, non-appointed to an official position person obtain so much power to get enacted in government schools, government funded mandatory programs such that if schools do not comply, federal funds will be denied (aka extortion.)

This is obscene.

Worse this sort of force feeding of foods not liked or wanted and potential punishment (psychological) for failure to consume, (e.g., eat all of your peas), coupled with hunger for lack of food, nutrition and calories can lead to a myriad of eating disorders. And, even worse, students who engage in highly active sports, e.g., football, basketball, swimming, track & field, soccer, etc. will be starved of the calories and protein necessary for energy and endurance.

Also, these ridiculous mandates of one-size fits all is absurd. Growing children mature at different rates, body growth spurts can occur within a couple months requiring a lot more food intake and finally weight and body shape also has a lot to do with heredity, and not so much with diet.

This woman just wants face time to shove down our throats with a feel-good program that no one could disagree with because "it is for the cheeeeeldin".

Disgusting!

I´ve got to climb back up on my bandwagon. My biggest gripe is all the free lunches, summer food programs for all of these starving children. That´s B.S.! All of these parents are getting food stamps and they still can´t feed their own kids? What a racket! Then you have all the food pantries, church give aways, etc, etc, etc. No wonder people won´t get a job, the do-gooders of the country make sure they don´t need to.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.
