Brats:

Isn't that ALWAYS the way? LOL.

I have found that when I put frozen cauliflower puree in macaroni & cheese, it has to KRAFT macaroni & cheese!

Mahed up blueberries in hamburgers seems to work too...especially if the burgers have cheese and bacon on them.

Brats: Have you tried sneaking in pureed vegetables into food such as into macaroni and cheese, spaghettios, peanut butter, baked beans and others?

The book I mentioned below, The Sneaky Chef & The Sneaky Chef To The Rescue by Missy Chase Lapine has lots of ideas for mixing in vegetable purees (even ones you don't have to make yourself) into convenience foods as well as recipes.

I imagine that there will probably be a lawsuit against the school district on this at some point. The news article said the school district leaves it up to the individual school and principal, so I don't know if the entire school district should be held responsible.

If any of you have seen "Supersize Me", there is an alternative high school in Appleton WI that DOES serve more nutritious meals made from locally-grown, organic produce and ingredients with no hormones, additives, or preservatives. The program was the brainchild of Phil Stitt & Dr. Barbara Stitt who started Natural Ovens of Manitowoc WI. These were behavioral disordered kids that TOTALLY turned around. their behavior. And. the kids LIKED the food! Natural Ovens underwrote the cost to improve the meals for 5 years. THEIR cost? $20,000! Guaranteed that the city of Chicago's school lunch (which probably isn't as good) cost more than that.

I would think that there are alot of things parents could do. One is get together as a group and demand to be part of the menu decisons. Missy Chase Lapine, the author of The Sneaky Chef books and former editor/publisher of Eating Well magazine has been suggesting recipes and menu ideas for schools for years. How about these people listen to her before making an arbitrary decision like that?

They probably want the kids to eat only school provided lunches because of what they will be adding to the food. It's all part of the NWO to dumb down kids by adding stuff that affect the mind. It continues with such things as no longer teaching cursive writing (so they can't read past documents) and telling people that radiation is good for you.

This will explain more.

This is outrageous! I would expect the court to rule against the school district. Since as someone pointed out, students don't necessarily like everything, a good part of the school lunch is thrown away. How much nutrition are the kids getting from the part of the lunch they throw out? I don't imagine too many are throwing out the desserts. Perhaps they will next hire lunch police to see to it that the kids eat all their food.
Who comes up with these ridiculous ideas in the first place?

As a parent, I would be fighting this battle! The school lunches in our area are NOT healthy. They do the best they can within the price they have to work with, but I can pack much more nutritious and cost-effective lunches. I also know my kids will eat what I pack in their lunches. They do not eat very much of the school lunches. Hope the parents are able to get that policy reversed!

I agree and who is going to take responsibilty when a child gets sick because of an allergic reaction to something in their food. I know from personal experience that all allergies cannot be accounted for by the school system but they will be accounted for by the parent.

An elementary school will not allow school children to BRING lunch from home! The reason: they say eating the school lunch is healthier? For whom? The food services bank account? Now, I don't HAVE children in school. But, if I did, I'd let them know that I am perfectly capable of packing a healthy child's lunch which is CHEAPER!

I just think this is outREAGEOUS!
