Recently on Facebook A friend was telling me in the USA they are fussing about chocolate milk and how some think it should be banned and some say no. I wrote that parents are responsible in the end for healthy food choices. That chocolate milk is not a problem really but the entire hot lunch program is mostly crap food. I stated just stop being lazy and pack a lunch for your kids! WOW I got two Moms yelling at me! They thought I was a snob and that I was judging them for not making the lunches....
Any who who is responsible for your child's healthy lunch you or the government?
Also I realize there are children who are poor and need a hot lunch or do not eat. I realize some parents do not have a choice. However as a former single teen Mom I was able to pack my daughter lunch and I did qualify for free and reduced lunches over the years. I allowed my kids to eat hot lunch once a week on pizza day or hot dog day... that was it.
