  • Is this really an issue?

    My school had less then 10% of chunky children in the population all through my basic education. Not sure if that is good or bad. After the Obama administration to geared up, our portion sizes shrunk for whatever reason. We had a ton of veggies available with minimum calorie contributing things like meat, potato's, breadsticks etc...To summarize, the portions of anything that tasted good were cut in half, and replaced with healthy food. There were two chocolate milks. One was a cheap skim chocolate. The other you had to buy extra and it was DELICIOUS. Most of the tub guts did not get tubby off of chocolate milk, but simply had very sedentary lives. Some of them are really fit today now that they've changed a few things. I've gotta tell you though, school meals are not fattening where I come from. It's just impossible with the minimal portions we received. I felt like I was in prison, and brought bacon, meat sandwiches, fried quesadillas, and grilled hamburgers (real ones) just to taunt people with actual food. That was my rebel story haha. I got good at making/sourcing food during 4rth hour class.
