Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, Doesn’t Work as Planners Planned.
“How do you expect us to go through the day and work hard when they give us smaller portions and we’re hungry”. This is a quote by Ashley Chaneco age 13 of Greater New Bedford Vocational-Technical H.S. after school lunch nutritional standards were changed under the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act”.
In this article, by Natalie Sherman in South Coast Today, you will see what happens when government try’s to intervene into our lives. The price goes up, the quality of the product goes down, people find ways around the law through black markets and smuggling. If the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” makes kids hungry, do you think “The Affordable Care Act” will make health care affordable. If you think health care is expensive now, wait until it becomes affordable.
Search – students, black markets, school lunch, – and you will find articles about how students around the country are dealing with the new school lunch mandates. It gives me hope for the future when I see young people acting toward onerous government mandates like our founding fathers acted toward the Kings onerous rules constraining individual freedom.
One question, looking at the picture above, do you think this bill was signed into law to “help the children”, or to help the “adults”.
