Last night, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” took a pretty funny look at the “battle brewing” over new nutrition regulations aimed at making school lunches healthier.
The new requirements requires students to take a fruit or vegetable in order for their meal to qualify for the school lunch price, and put restrictions on the variety of veggies to be served during a week, among other changes.
Some local school officials said they thought kids wouldn’t have too much trouble with the changes. Others raised concerns about whether new calorie limits would be enough for some students or if fruits and veggies would just be thrown away.

I think my favorite line is “Extry extry! Children think school lunches suck!”
But seriously, how are these new regulations working out in your schools?
Are kids grumbling about the changes or finding the new menus are OK? Anyone going home hungry? And fess up: if you’re hungry, is it because your fruits and veggies ended up in the trash?
