Personally, I have a huge problem with telling parents what they can and can't do. You want to send your kid to school with a cheeseburger and a bottle of coke, go right ahead. Who is the school to tell them what they can and can't eat for lunch? That's ridiculous, in my humble opinion. Having said that, though, despite what I think about what parents would be allowed to do, I'm a HUGE supporter of what Jamie Oliver is doing. I really feel that obesity is killing America at an alarming rate. No joke. Being an aspiring physician, I've read tons of articles on obesity, but, recently, the one that shook me the most was that on average (in 2009) 1 out of 4 Americans are obese. Also, the new estimate was that in 2010, we spent something like $168,000,000,000 on obesity related stuff. Amazing. Just think about what we could have spent of cafeteria food with that! haha. Sorry. hehe. I'm a science dork. Anyway, my point is that I really do think this school is way out of line. I do, however, think that schools should make a larger attempt at actually supporting healthy eating habits. I, personally, don't consider processed food healthy, but that's me.
