Jim began with news from Open Doors U.S.A. They are alleging that 25-30 Christian students were massacred by a militant Islamic group at Northern Nigerian College. Open Doors U.S.A. is calling for prayer for victims, families and friends.

Imagine schools going through your child’s sack lunches to make sure they don’t contain certain food items. Can you imagine your kids looking forward to hummus and black bean salads for lunch? Would you believe that at one school in Massachusetts, students created a “black market” for chocolate syrup, selling it by the “squeeze”?

The problem began in December of 2010 when President Barack Obama signed S. 3307, The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. As time went on, the U.S.D.A. set calorie limits that are designed to reduce the amount of proteins and carbohydrates; factors that are claimed to have been promoting obesity. These limits are part of mandates that came down from Congress to the U.S.D.A during the last lame-duck session.

The government’s intentions may sound good on the surface, but even with Michelle Obama promoting the healthier choices, the changes simply aren’t playing out well in schools. Find out why and what you can do to keep the government out of your refrigerator when you review this edition of Crosstalk.
