An Impertinent But Important Question

Having school cafeterias serve healthy food, eschewing junk goodies and serving only nonfattening and health enhancing stuff, might be a good idea. Perhaps its even a great one. 

But where in the the Constitution, pray tell, is there anything that gives the federal government the power to mandate schools throughout the nation to do any such thing? Can't we trust the citizens on local school boards to decide what is best for students in their communities?

Doesn't anyone care about such questions anymore? 

President Obama clearly does not. He just signed another nanny state piece of legislation. This one empowers the federal government to dictate what can and what cannot be served in school cafeterias everywhere in the U.S.
