Feds Give In: More Meat In School Lunches!


The Agriculture Department is responding to criticism over new school lunch rules by allowing more grains and meat in kids’ meals.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told members of Congress in a letter Friday that the department will do away with daily and weekly limits of meats and grains. Several lawmakers wrote the department after the new rules went into effect in September saying kids aren’t getting enough to eat.

School administrators also complained, saying set maximums on grains and meats are too limiting as they try to plan daily meals.

“This flexibility is being provided to allow more time for the development of products that fit within the new standards while granting schools additional weekly menu planning options to help ensure that children receive a wholesome, nutritious meal every day of the week,” Vilsack said in a letter to Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D.

    the ‘funny’ thing about this – after the pink slime expose, a lot of parents petitioned to have it removed from their school lunches – this is meat, folks, the stuff that is reformatted to be edible (like hot dogs)

    You fall for the hype, you let the statists get a wee bit control and it’s not enough, they take more …

    oh and HOME SCHOOL !!!!
