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

ie. never

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.
