Perhaps we should just start treating lunch like an actual class and teach kids about nutrition and cooking so they won't turn into fat turds.

Seeing how even most doctors are clueless about nutrition, this would end up a giant failure.

Hell, even a bunch of nutritionists are. For something so essential to our wellbeing we've barely scratched the surface of it. Back when I was in school we were being told that at least 50% of our diet should be bread and pasta.

The healthcare industry would collapse if 80% of Americans didn't develop type 2 diabetes sometime in their lives.

In Japan, school lunch means a regular meal, not one that harms your health. The food is grown locally and almost never frozen. There’s no mystery in front of the meat.

Japan takes seriously both its food and its health and, as a result, its school lunches are a point of national pride — not a source of dismay. As other countries, including the United States, struggle to design school meals that are healthy, tasty and affordable, Japan has all but solved the puzzle, using a system that officials here describe as utterly common sense.

In the United States, where obesity rates have tripled over the past three decades, new legislation championed by Michelle Obama has pushed schools to debut menus with controversial calorie restrictions. But even the healthiest choices are generally provided by large agri-food companies, cooked off site, frozen and then reheated, and forced to compete in cafeterias with all things fried, salty and sweet.

I think part of the problem is centralisation. The schools I went to organised their own lunches and they were rarely spectacular, but always edible and reasonably healthy. I look at some of the shite school boards, states and federal governments come up with and I have to wonder why anyone in a first world country would eat it.

I remember being taught nutrition in school, they really pushed grains and breads. A proper fitness and nutrition class would be amazing, but letting the government handle that would turn out terrible.

Yeah, me too. Meat and fish were in the second smallest category afaik, just above fruit and vegetables and just below sweets.

Now they're telling me to eat mostly protein, avoid carbs and that fruit are as bad as sweets. Vegetables are in about the same place. I'm following their advice, the science makes sense, but I'll be pissed if there's another revolution in 10 years or so and I've been wasting my time.

Hey, maybe we should be thanking Michael and its retarded lunch "accomplishment"... for starting the redpilling of Generation Z! I remember I actually quite enjoyed school lunch when I was in high school -- usually quite tasty -- but when my little brother was in middle school and the lunch system was changed, he came home railing about how much everybody hated the Obamas for ruining their lunch and basically making it non-edible.

My public schools had decent lunches, in high school they had salad bars. There was also a senior program where the elderly could come in after student lunches and eat.

This is what I hate about the left. They always want "mo money fo dem programs" and the leftists always give it to them because "mo money" means it's getting put to good use solving bad problems. Those gullible shits actually think the money is going to a good cause and it's not being funneled into corrupt people's pockets.

Those are usually the ones who are in on it. But what about the rest of society where these morons keep cheering for more more more, highly doubt they know jack shit.

His punishment should be that he be required to eat the shit that he and the First Chimp-Chick was forcing our kids to eat, for the rest of his life, until he kills himself.

What makes someone a specialist in school lunches? Shouldn't every day nutrition apply to everyone? Do kids in schools need something different than kids at home?

Want to bet the thinking starts with "no peanuts" because a small percentage of kids will burst into flame around a jar of Jif? Then it travels through the grinder of nothing offensive to minorites, nothing that can be chewed into the shape of a gun, nothing as sharp as a plastic fork. Final product: Sweet, nourishing gruel, actual value a nickel a bowl, actual cost to the taxpayer twenty-k just to open the burlap sack it's delivered in.

I am given to understand that allergies among children have gotten so bad that some may actually go into anaphylaxis and die from so much as looking at a picture of a peanut.
