Letter: Lunch changes insane, extremeI agree with the food choices the schools are serving, but I think it’s insane to go to such extreme measures to fight obesity by limiting the amount of food served for school lunches. I have never heard of anyone blaming obesity on those darn high- fat school lunches. Ever heard of McDonalds? Or Jack in the Box, Burger King or Pizza Hut?
I am a football coach, and this fall I really noticed a decline in performance, and the only factor or excuse that was given from the kids was that they were starving. They didn’t get enough to eat at school. We had to provide snacks so the kids would have some energy for practice.
