Wow, not even Taco Bell or McDonald's want this stuff, but yet this will be going into school lunches?  Logic?  What's that?

I don't know, they make it sound like some new and horrible thing, but near the bottom of the article they say this:

I eat scrapple, which is probably 95% "pink slime meat," so that part does not bother me.  What bothers me is that they point out the lower nutritional value.  That means it's just cheap filler.  Kids don't need cheap filler.  They need good, nutritional food.  We already pack  our kids' lunches, so it's no impact on my family, but it will affect many others.

Yes, but I imagine a lot of that use is in fast food or prepared ground beef products.  Since a lot of what my family buys at the store is 93% lean and ground there at the meat department, I'd bet it's unlikely to have the stuff.

What a novel concept. I grew up on brown-bag lunches. WTF is going on that brown-bagging is so f**king unheard of? Oh the humanity of a child bringing his or her lunch to school and actually getting food that their parents can control.

I did that with my daughter most of the time. I wanted to be sure what she got was both good for her and tasted good. I have often wondered at some of the stuff they serve our kids.

That's why we do it.  Today Jenna and Andy had peanut butter and pumpkin butter sandwiches, yogurt, string cheese, applesauce, fruit juice, carrot sticks, fresh red pepper sliced up, and then one of those 100 calorie snack packs of chocolate covered-pretzels for dessert.

It sounds like a lot of food, and it is.  They're my kids.  I'm concerned of how much we're going to spend on food when they are teenagers.

Hold the phone: sugar is a big bad, but pink slime meat is a 'go'?  (And is anyone else having difficulty not thinking of "The Stuff"?)

I thought of "The Stuff" as well.

here's a quote from the comments down below:

And they have the nerve to tell some parents that their homemade lunches aren't nutritious enough! So a turkey and cheese is bad, but chemically seperated meat and connective tissue is?

Um, don't be so sure.  From the "oh, that can NEVER happen" department:

http://www.carolinajournal.com/exclusives/display_exclusive.html?id=8762

And, the public outcry was so tremendous that they had to re-locate the meeting to discuss this.  Note also that the commission was acting against the advice of its own attorney!

http://www.nccivitas.org/2012/nc-commission-deleted-exception-for-parents-to-school-lunch-nutrition-rules/

"These People," as I've come to call them, will push, stomp and try anything.  Why, I don't know.  What the HELL they were thinking is beyond me.  But they thought they were doing the right thing in their worldview...a worldview that is simultaneously very prevalent...and very scary.

Someone else will not force my children to eat something, and they will not replace what I provide them for meals.  Should they make the mistake of doing it once, I guarantee that it will not be repeated.

Also, from the article, it sounds like the mother had the exact same stance as I do.

Ironic that since mad cow disease they have been steering away from adding this sort of material to animal feeds....wait a minute...why do they have so much available now for human consumption?  Hmm?
