    More waste of tax dollars and we can thank some Republicans for voting to pass this travesty (including my 2 Senators in Tennessee!):

    And she meddled in our Military food, as well. Nothing like a good plate of hummus to build muscle mass and strength. HOOAH.

    >In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

    Good thing Sumo wrestling is not a high school sport.

    In Wisconsin we can expect hungry high school athletes to complain about school lunches and not be smart enough to bring extra food from home.

    I'm just wondering what the entire bill said.
    Oftne a good bill will pass with a bad sub section.

    Can anyone find the actual bill?

    States need to learn from this old proverb: When you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.

    In some states, their food brought from home is confiscated and the parents are charged for the school lunch. See the thread in the News Forum.

    Snacks: The USDA's Solution To Student's Healthy Lunch Complaints

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/hungry-kids-grumble-healthy-school-lunches/story?id=17324285#.UGODKkY_i33

    "It's not surprising that some youngsters will in the middle of the day be hungry," Vilsack told ABC News, responding to the controversy. "I remember my two boys when they came back from school they were always hungry, we always had snacks prepared for them."

    Vilsack said the Obama Administration is working with school districts to create snack programs and encouraging parents to pack extra food for their active students to munch on before football practice or band rehearsal.

    It's quite obvious that Michelle Obama has never raised any teenage boys. They pack it in!!

    A quick investigation on google indicates that this single incident occurred in one school district in February. How come it died and didn't go national?

    Anyone on BB know of this happening in their school district?
