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.
Exactly. A parent can always take control over this and send their own food to school with their kid. Or if it's an open campus, give them money to go out and buy any food they want. No one is forcing these kids to eat the school lunches if they don't like them.

We live in a twisted world in which basic nutrition is seen as a negative, and foods that destroy health are not only promoted by companies with an economic interest in selling such, but by our populace as a whole.

In 2003 the highest rate of childhood obesity by state was 22.8% (DC) and no state was in the 30's. By 2007, 31 states had rates of childhood obesity over 30%, with the highest being 44.4% (MS).
