The law will no doubt help many kids along the way... it's just that I see this school lunch situation and now the helmet law and can't help but think, "where does it stop?"
it stops when:
a.parents decide that they'd rather fight the system collectively than just bend over and allow the schools to make these decisions
b.children can be trusted to do what their parents say when their parents aren't around
c.children somehow learn to do what's best for themselves over what they WANT for themselves
the sad truth is that most schools probably DO offer healthier food for children than their parents make - parents are in charge of parenting their child full-time and sometimes nutrition falls by the wayside, whereas the people making the decisions about school lunches are doing THAT full-time.
I'm just saying, until parents are collectively willing to step-up and take on all of these issues head-on, there is no end.
