Have LA Educators Ever Met Any Children?

LA Times is reporting the 1st Lady-inspired healthy school lunch program is a massive flop.
According to a weekend report by the Los Angeles Times, the city’s “trailblazing introduction of healthful school lunches has been a flop.” In response to the public hectoring and financial inducement of Mrs. Obama’s federally subsidized anti-obesity campaign, the district dropped chicken nuggets, corn dogs and flavored milk from the menu for “beef jambalaya, vegetable curry, pad Thai, lentil and brown rice cutlets, and quinoa and black-eyed pea salads.”
Unsurprisingly, faced with this exotic fare, the kids are throwing it out rather than eating it and, equally unsurprising,
A forbidden-food black market — stoked not just by students, but also by teachers — is now thriving.
There's nothing wrong with serving kids healthier food, but it doesn't take a genius to know most kids aren't going to try spicy and exotic fare. How about some simple and inexpensive carrot sticks and fruit slices and tossed salads with a little ranch dressing? Kids will eat those things.

That program clearly has nothing whatever to do with kids, and is aimed instead at providing contracts for vendors.
