Big brother burgers

Re: Nationalize school lunch?

In a recent article, Debbie Field co- ordinator for the Coalition for Healthy School Food discusses the importance of the school food programs. What I was reading seemed to make sense, and I thought the “farm to fork” initiative interesting with many potential benefits.

However when I read the statement “there needs to be a universal approach to everybody eating together” I had an Orwellian 1984 shiver down my spine. How could this even work, everybody eating together would put a real restriction on the menu given religious beliefs, allergies, and personal likes and dislikes.   

Freedom of speech is being subjugated by political correctness and now it appears freedom of food choices may also be under attack. I had better go bite into that burger before big brother comes take it away.
