<< If people are adopting a "grazing" style of eating, perhaps that's something school lunches should adapt to instead of resisting.
The societal costs are too high -both direct and indirect. It is not even remotely responsible behavior to say because kids like eating junk food we should just knuckle under and give it to them.>>


Well Ginko, I don't suppose a "grazing" style of eating needs to be the same thing as eating junk food.

In any case, it isn't really the government's job to force it's choice of menus and eating style on people. If government is going to feed people's children, it should be done with a degree of respect towards parents, children and cultural values and norms.

What I see in this thread rather often is the most contemptuous attitudes towards children and parents imaginable.
