I think Ensure would be a healthier option.

Recipes make so much these days since the portion sizes are larger than they used to be,so I freeze half the amount to eat later.

I'm single and a lot of food goes to waste unless I am proactive. I freeze half a loaf of bread because it would get moldy before I could ever finish it.

There used to be Home Ec classes in high school that taught the basics. They should get rid of the diversity training and S&M classes and bring back Home Ec and wood shop to teach something useful!

Birthday cakes or healthy food...as long as it's paid for by someone else, right?

In order to make enough money to take care of a family of 4 or 5 on a Wal-Mart wage, one would have to work 80-90 per week.
I assume you do not mean federal income taxes?

You may recall, the Obama Admin was hung out to dry for eliminating most junk food from all subsidized school lunch programs. Nothing at the Federal level prevented kids from bringing junk from home.

Michele Obama's project was to get kids moving to curb childhood obesity. That too was mocked by the Obama haters.
Well I am an Obama hater and I liked the effort.

lets see what they come up with before speculating without any factual information and condemning something that has not yet been approved.

It was sad to see what the parents and cafeteria ladies did to Michelle Obama. I thought it was the job of parents to teach the kids about nutrition. Looks like most just feed them what they like. FF and nuggets.

Years ago when the kids were in band I had to take food and work the food line when other bands were at our school for competition. Most moms brought donuts and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. they thought i was odd for bring carrots, celery, cucumbers.apples and pears. To their surprise that went first.

The kids who have gardens at school eat their veggies.
OUr school won't allow treats at the parties but they feed them french toast for lunch.
