So the obesity issue comes down to school lunches? If that is true why are we then adding meals to the school programs instead of getting away from them? Now, I have not eaten a school lunch in decades and from what I remember they were not all that great. Matter of fact, I brought lunch. Hey, that's an idea!! We are slowly taking away parents responsibilities. We are feeding children three times a day at school. When do these kids spend time with their parents? I understand that many parents have to work long hours, but spending time with your kids is too important to grant to the state. All studies show that families that eat together on a regular basis raise children that are healthier, happier, and do better in school. We should be promoting families spending time together instead of saying that the government will take care of all your needs.
I am sick to death of hearing about how McDonalds is making our children fat. Young children don't go to McDonalds by themselves. Someone has to take them there. If a parent doesn't know that McDonalds should only be a once in a while treat, that is something that government can't take care of. You can't fix stupid.
