Thanks for taking part of my sentence out of context and criticizing me for it, regulator. It proves the low value of your intellectual currency.

"water is a viable alternative to milk" You've really come up with a good one there. Please try to explain that. I'll give you a hint. Milk is a food.

The letter was about the removal of "flavored" milk from school menus. The flavor wasn't the problem, it was the excessive amounts of sugar in the flavored milk that the kids were drinking. Water and unsweetened fruit juice are viable alternatives to milk. Plain milk, with 1% milk fat, is healthy too. The removal of overly sweetened milk products may have hurt the dairy industry's bottom line but I think the health of our children has a priority over that.

Of course it's accurate. Visit any school cafeteria. ANY. Did you read this letter? And I still want to know why you were taking photos of JFK's route in Dallas just before he was shot.

Hey nonfiction How poor were you? Why do these starving kids not grab all the food being thrown away in the cafeteria?

If you don't have milk on the menu, the feds cut you off. The same kids that throw away the good food are the ones getting it free or reduced price. Stop wasting billions of dollars on mothering somebody's kids. If mama or the kid has a smart phone...they don't need help with food.

Every fat Mother showing a snap card with tobacco breath, tats, and piercings should have the card destroyed. Send the kids to live with you. They'd love kale sooner or later.

And your quote was missing the rest of the sentence. How much time have you spent on welfare? Not "studying" it with your left handed glasses?

Wanna compare experience with being poor? From what you just said, the kids should be raised by the state. Way to out yourself prog.

"BS of nutrition being the standard"

Its science, but we know old timers like you don't buy into that.

Ask anyone who works at a school with high levels of poverty. Kids aren't being feed properly feed at all at home. Parents don't always use SNAP like they should. It's amazing how little you actually know about you're own back yard. Seeing is believing, but you need to open your eyes. WHy don't you talk to social workers and people that educate these children who live in poverty. Or better yet sit down and talk to the people who are living in poverty. See why they are where there at.

Obesity and hunger are two different things.

Just keep the kids and shut off snap to their parents. Bunk in the gym and watch re-runs of Obama's campaigns all night.

Show me nonfiction. Where is the evidence? Poor eating habits should not be the schools business. Show me starvation. Don't try to dazzle me with BS of nutrition being the standard set by you people. You keep saying it is a fact. Is there a police record? Any record other than what you tofu lovers make up? Fat kids aren't starving. Put up or shut up.

Ok nonfiction, you say the only meal some kids get is the one at school. So what has happened to this liberal SNAP program? The one that is mentioned and debated here often. What are these parents doing with this allocation meant for food? Your comment doesn't seem to hold water, that there are a large amount of people using the SNAP program, but the only meal these kids get is at school? What gives?

Milk is one of the nutritionally most concentrated and varied as well as safe and pure, of foods. The more its consumption is promoted, particularly at the expense of soda and modern "energy" drinks, the better.

The intellectual Elites. People that understand that bad foods are making us fat, and casing health problems which is making our health care more expensive. The intellectual elites who understand that the mass majority is highly uninformed. Would you rather have them tell you "eat what you want, it doesn't matter" just like ciggs back in the day?

It isn't ideal but schools do need to take part in making sure that children eat at all. There are plenty of children who's only real meal is the one they recieve at school. 50s you have a strong ingnorance to the area of around and how people live. Not every child has who is malnourished comes from crack heads on gov't dole. Many come from homes where parents are working min wage jobs and heat, electric, and rent come before food. It is a fine argument its not the schools job to feed the children, and in Utopia they don't, but if you haven't looked around since 1950 this isn't Utopia.
