I think the pot is calling the kettle black! I believe this because USA Today reported last week that the group Mission Readiness is concern with what SCHOOL lunches (Lunch/Breakfast programs at public schools) are doing to our children. According the the USA Today report 30-50% of a child's daily calories are consumed AT school in a SCHOOL LUNCH!
Mission Readiness has PDF To Fat To Fight. It talks about wanting the junk food out of the SCHOOLS! It talks about wanting Congress to allow the US. department of agriculture to establish NEW nutrition guidelines that would remove HIGH-Calorie, LOW-Nutrition foods out of the SCHOOLS!
Besides health issues did you know that obesity is a national security threat?
Look, I think it's stupid that a government wants to point the finger at McDonald, Burger King, Wendy's and all the rest when the meals they serve DAILY in a school environment is just as BAD!! And I would argue that it's even worst then the fast food joints because it's DAILY!!! Fix the school lunches BEFORE you worry about what Ronald and the King are doing!The leading medical reason why so many young people are unqualified to serve: A fourth of adults in this age group — at least 9 million young men and women — are too heavy, according to military entry standards, the group says in its new report, Too Fat to Fight.
"When that many young adults can't fight because of their weight, it affects our national preparedness and national security," says retired rear admiral Jamie Barnett, a member of Mission: Readiness.
