Does government have the right to tell you what you can and can’t eat by eliminating your options
I think it has the right to choose to not offer options to kids in publicly funded institutions. It isn’t saying they can’t bring them from home and it isn’t saying they can’t consume them at school. This is the government regulating what is offered at a government (or public) funded place. Lastly, the liberty of children is already limited by the government (truancy laws, alcohol age limits, smoking limits, etc). I mean, I am fairly sure that schools aren’t allowed to have cigarette vending machines in schools. (I realize the difference, but still feel the comparison is worth considering).
Of course, the government does regulate what we can and can’t eat through the FDA. But I don’t see this as the same thing at all, as per above.
I wonder if that blanket “schools” would include private schools. I doubt they could do anything there in this regard.
