I think this would be a great outlet to post our concerns, rants, etc.....on our WAGS experiences due to low stock, new ECers, & S&Gers.

For what it's worth I do believe that low stock is more of an issue than S&Gers, but they and new ECers are definitely playing a huge role in the issues that we are all encountering. Frown

But a healthier school lunch program also fails because of current perceptions, weird political correctness(for a lack of a better definition) and some new push to turn every kid into a vegetarian.

Hummus is "in", chili is not, but not a whole lot of difference in the base ingredient between hummus and chili made with beans. Chili has a big added advantage in the multitude of ways it could be made including adding chicken and some other veggies.

Cost wise a lower quality veggie can be used to make it, as any cosmetic blemishes that hurt the "prettiness" is not a factor.

The kids would eat the chili, instead of the hummus going in the trash. That can be said for so many school meals if you could just get the bureaucrats and politicians out of the kitchen.
a young kid will eat whatever he/she used to have at home, or whatever majority of kids in school would eat, be that chili, cheeseburger with chocolate syrup, hummus or pickled tongue topped with fried waterbugs. OMG

chili fries is a totally different dish then just chili.
Wanna talk about political correctness and meals quality - lets go to BS tread.

I encourage people to try different brands/preparations of stuff.

There is one brand of hummus that is pretty awful, and one that is really awesome. I can never get it as creamy at home as the good brand from the store.
The nice thing about hummus is that you can use it to sub for mayo on sandwiches.

Preparation: I don't like green peppers, unless they are in fajitas. I like carrots a lot better when raw. Etc.
The hummus (and other foods) served in school lunches may not resemble what a decent hummus should taste like , due to cost and other constraints of the school lunch system.

I've tried it as well, and um, not my thing. Not sure that many people will keep buying different brands of any type food in hopes that they find one they like. Usually people have to actually like something first, before they venture to trying different ones.

I don't think something that sort of needs to be an acquired taste for most people, is the ideal food to serve in a school cafeteria. Many "junk foods" can be made with better healthier ingredients and even things like mayo, a small amount is not unhealthy. When you're catering to finicky kids, foods that will appeal to the majority seems like a better choice than hummus or tofu.

From the article brought up in post #8645:

"Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market - for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze, according to SouthCoastToday.com."

Why schools are bothered at all with cooked lunches? Get everyone a salad made from Twizzlers, Lays (baked, please) and Tictacs, dressed with sugar free Hershey syrup. laugh out loud

Iagree I won't waste my $$ or a coupon (even if free) on items that I didn't like (regardless of brand).

I'll agree I'm not an adventurous eater, as I'm not paying my hard earned $$ on something I may not like (including at restaurants). I grew up with a Dad that didn't like spice... so much so that we couldn't use all the taco seasoning packet for the taco meat... I never knew that the seasoning comes in mild, medium and hot and didn't know there was sauce for tacos until I was in college. I don't like salsa of any kind. I'm from the BLAND family laugh out loud

rydergal has met me... she knows I like food a little too much Wink5

If you were in the target thread, there was a video several years ago about a shopper named Brandy. If you cut her hair, I could have been Brandy's twin.

Reps are back...for now. Stick Out Tongue I owe loads of gratitude to everyone that got me where I am! Read the *NEW* CVS FAQ and post your questions there. Let's keep the deal threads deal-related, please.
Would it kill you to read the wiki? Or to read the thread? All the experts got to where they are by reading...you can too.

You need to enter your zip code to confirm redemption of points. At the zip code screen it will list the number of points you are redeeming and ask you to confirm. If the number of points is not correct, you simply hit cancel without confirming your zip code.. Then ask the cashier to correct the amount of the point redemption..
Or, just do it yourself. Told the kid he other day that I wanted to use my points...he pulled up the screen and said, "How much?"...
"I"LL DO IT"....and I did it myself.
Good to know there is a cancel button there, thanx!
