Honestly, I still remember McDonalds, pizza and chicken nuggets I ate in High school. All "enzyme-dead" greasy food! It's sickening.
NC!

Even when I was in high school we didn't have them( grad 96, so not that long ago)- at least not my school. There were vending machines that sold canned juices. School lunches were...well...school lunches. blech! lol no pizza and McyD's for us!

Connecticut has banned sodas in school cafeterias, and the schools are limited in the amount of "junk" food they serve, too.

I think families are too busy or lazy and also cater too much to their children. Im only going to judge my family, they are not ignorant or fat, in fact one works for a doctor, but I see them feeding their kids candy, soda and chips constantly along with too much fast food. My bros wife will drive her son to burgerking to get burgers instead of making him eat what was cooked for supper. I picked my gs up at their house at 8pm one eve. and he had a can of Mt. dew, I promptly poured it down the sink. I constantly critize my xdil and son for the eating habits of their kids. I may not have been the best parent, but my kids rarely got those things. My 24 yr. old son still whines because he was never allowed to put sugar on his cornflakes.

That's when you pull out the "old-timer" voice and drawl:

"Back in THE DAY, we didn't even have cornflakes! We had to eat wood shavings! And we didn't have milk in the refrigerator, hell no, we didn't even HAVE a refrigerator -- we had to take our bowl out to the cow and milk it onto our wood shavings. Come to think of it, we didn't even have BOWLS! We had to cup the wood shavings in our hands, and slurp them up without a spoon...All this, uphill both ways kneedeep in snow without shoes, while walking on frozen glass!"
