As one parent put it, "They're saying, 'Parents don't know what's best for their children, the government does.' "As a parent, I would feel the same way. Yes, it's true, some parents don't (or can't) always provide healthy meals to their children. But does that mean that the government should just step in and take over? And how does this solve the changing of eating habits at home? I think a more effective strategy would be education for families.
I also would be interested to see what their lunches look like- if they are anything like the ones served in the Minneapolis Public Schools, then their ban is just laugh-worthy.
