One of my personal goals is to minimize wasted food. I also think children should be treated with a reasonable degree of dignity, catering to their tastes and biases in food when it's reasonable to do so.

Their tastes and biases for junk food is based on their parents taking the easy route and feeding them that food at home. Parents send their kids to school with bad eating habits, bad discipline, and lousy attitudes. Instead of fighting for the schools to feed the kids junk food, maybe you should spend your energy trying to get parents to do their parenting jobs and not leave the schools to do it for them.
