Just Brown Bag It!

Well, good for them
"A movement protesting new federal guidelines for healthy school lunches that began in Pennsylvania has spread to Minnesota, where hundreds of students are now bringing brown bags in a boycott of the new menu.  Starting this year, there are strict limits on calories, sodium and meat portions. Whole milk is off the menu altogether, and kids are required to take a fruit or vegetable. As parents with fussy eaters might guess, some student's aren't salivating over those options."
It's about time! And note that it takes kids to do what adults are too spineless to do. People are fed up already. I love the line that says "kids are required" to take a fruit or vegetable. Required by whom? And what happens if you refuse? If this isn't an example of Big Brother, I don't know what is.
