Default No more lunch packing...

I just can't wrap my mind around this School Bans Lunches From Home. I'm old enough to remember lunch ladies making really good food like scratch rolls, homemade spaghetti sauce, baked chicken and real mashed potatoes. Now with "caterers" and frozen tv dinner style meals being served, no way would my (imaginary LOL) kids be eating that stuff. I just can't shake the feeling that it is some sort of attempt to raise income from the USDA food program or something.

my son is grown and on his own now, but he never liked school food, he always carried from home!

oh, and what about families who fall into the zone where they make too much for free lunch but not enough to pay for it???

will they be going free for all the students?

who stays up at night thinking all these things up?!

This is unreal. The same kids who bring in soda and chips for lunch will still have access to it after school and at night and possibly for breakfast. Teach moderation, proper nutrition and exercise that is doable....stop with the food dictatorships in schools ESPECIALLY if the only option is cafeteria food...YUK!

I saw this on Yahoo.

Another example of government intrusion into our lives. I am all for healthier diets and what not but forcing kids to eat school lunches and banning them from bringing their own lunches is absolutely unacceptable. Parents and kids should be able to choose for themselves what they want to do.

I have nothing against school lunches but the pics they have of the lunches don't look that healthy at all. It's all processed garbage. To claim that this is somehow much more healthy than home pack lunches is ridiculous.

This is insane. I was so picky as a child (still am, really) that I never would have eaten school lunch- certainly not what's pictured. I work in public school-most of it appears processEd and high in fat

if the students cannot pack, then the faculty and staff should not be allowed either.
they shoudl be made to follow same rules and set examples for the students!

and guess how long after that, this rule would change LOL.............

Yes, that rule should definitely be changed. Too intrusive. None of their business if I pack my child's lunch or not! I agree, Mary Rose.

What?? Is this a localized thing or all over the US? Nothing like that in Canada. In fact not that many schools have a cafeteria, in our area anyway. We have a hot lunch program of sorts that a restaurant has a monoply on, and there are maybe 6 items available in a month.
