College kids eat white food because they can! There is no longer a parent sitting there telling them they have to eat some chicken (it's white too!). I have a 2 year old and a 58 year old living in my house and both would eat only white food if allowed. The burden is on you-- save the Squire from a premature diabetic coma.

Dude, you say that as if I'm not watching what he eats when you know that I am. It's just funny that he so greatly prefers things that are easy to cook (real question: "Can we have toast for dinner?") when I am actually capable of providing a wide variety of things. It's not that he's not given a balanced diet: it's that he doesn't appreciate it.

Thanks for the account! Delegation sounds like a good solution to list obsessed teachers.

I do wonder why the schools don't just buy everything their students will need at a wholesale rate, and then resell to the students the first day of school. It would make it easier for the parents, the teachers would be guaranteed that the kids have everything they'll need, and the schools would make a bit of money too.

I am now seriously afraid of what August 2010 holds for me.

On the white food note, we're dealing with the same thing over here. We're starting to get sneaky, though. On the weekend, we made homemade macaroni and cheese, and I hid about a pound of shredded steamed cauliflower in the casserole dish. That's right: I tricked my child into eating vegetables, and I feel pretty good about it.
