People complain about McDonald's and Burger King being allowed in schools, but it may be a better choice than this. At least it's a coin flip. I think the quality of fast food is better than the processed trash they feed my kids. I have seen it, and it looks like the worst generic junk at a grocery store.

I lost 14 pounds in a week on a diet of McDonald's and gas station sandwiches while I was on assignment in the Netherlands. At least with that, you have the option to pitch the bun. Mini corn dogs don't have much left after the breading goes.

In related news, Kentucky Legend ham isn't cured with sugar and tastes pretty good. Found this out this weekend.

That's usually my road food...McDonald's burgers without the bun, along with string cheese and almonds.

I know this is a complex, multi-layered problem. I think it's time this country found solutions.

Do you get the TV series where Jamie Oliver tried to introduce healthful changes to school dinners in the US. If you don't know him, he's a UK TV chef who has been active trying to reform school dinners over here.

He's a very irritating, punchable character, but he does some good work.

Anyway, it was really interesting to see just how resistant the various groups were to changing anything: cooks, schools, kids, even some parents. It really was an uphill battle.

[quote=BendtheBar;231495]One final word...people like to pick on McDonald's, but we let public schools off the hook. My kids eat at school 5x more than they eat at McDonald's.


this made me LOL

I watched that show. It was very revealing. I felt bad for him because the battle was too big for one man.

They eat at McDonald's once every 3-4 weeks. Most times they take bag lunches to school. So when I say the ratio is 5 to 1, it means once a month they eat at McDonalds as a treat.

We let them take school lunches when the meals are acceptable, which is 1-2 times per week. maybe.
