So, what do we think of this new bill that aims to remove all junk food from schools?
I do find the following a bit ironic:
The bill would apply to all foods other than the official school lunch, the meal for which schools receive government aid and which is already covered by other high-nutrition standards.
OK, how much you wanna bet most school lunches are heavy on the meat and cheese and other high-fat but highly-subsidized foods?
I also question this applying to foods that clubs/groups sell for fundraisers. I mean seriously, what will they sell door to door if not candy bars? And isn't that then trying to legislate what adults buy, not what kids eat?
I know, I know, you'd think I'd be 100% all for this. I am obviously still mentally stuck in high school...when I'd certainly rebel against such an idea.
What do you think?
