Dixon Schools serve nachos at lunch and the manager of food service called that a perfectly nutritious meal.

Our school children would be tickled pink if they were served organic plain yogurt with fresh fruit and a fresh banana plus possibly a tablespoon of raw unsalted almonds or walnut halves.

Instead, schools choose the easy way and appease our children with an untold number of poisonous and toxic snack foods. No wonder the kids look like beached whales!

Kids want junk. I wouldn't be surprised if soon there are pediatric scooters for fat kids.

I just find it insulting when the school sends home information about how I should be feeding my kids. Why don't they look at their lunch program FIRST!

"Do as I say, not as I do." Another indication of increasing totalitarianism of government.

Yeah I'll bet they would be tickled pink. Would you have eaten yogurt and fruit when you were a kid?

Yogurt wasn't a popular item in the 1950s. We enjoyed a couple graham crackers and milk for a snack. For school lunches, the cafeteria served chicken, baked fish, meatloaf, turkey & pork roast along with side dishes with different vegetables and fruit. The fruit was usually the desert.

There was no soda allowed, no candy, and no other kind of junk food that kids are poisoned with today.

People complain that if we don't give kids EXACTLY what they want, then they'll toss it into the garbage. Again, back in the day, one didn't leave the school cafeteria without a "clean plate check" by one of the monitors, who were older kids. This was a good lesson in responsibility for both older and younger students.

Now, it seems to be appease the kids at any cost. Just give them what they want, health be damned.

I see no problem with giving the kids chips, cookies, etc. for a snack. I would like the actual lunches to be more healthy. Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Nachos isn't a lunch. Kids will always gravitate to the junk snacks expecially when they are old enough to buy out of the vending machines. We can't police the snacks, but the actual full lunches can be changed to incorporate healthier items.
