As a result of this nanny-statism, children aren't eating healthier, they are throwing more food in the trash.

From what the nightly news was showing, it's the kids in high school, many who have "open" lunch periods where they have the choice to go outside school grounds to buy what they want to eat, who are complaining the most and throwing away the most school food. In grade schools kids seem to be eating what they're served - and since these young kids are learning to eat more fruits/veggies maybe they won't turn into future teens with such an aversion to healthier choices when they're given greater choice.
