Agree, the rules are to protect the kids that are neglected or malnourished by their parents.
Best way to make everything better, it is to educate the little ones about nutritional value of foods from young age - too late for many parents or talk-show hosts

sorry but I had to fix this.... the only think Rush cares about is Rush.

4 more years of Obama is what they all really want because it makes them a ton of money.

Actually the USDA wanted tomato paste as well as French fries unclassified as veggies. It was all those dietitians in Congress who decided pizza was a veggie.
