In Marybeth Hicks’ recent column about the school lunch debate, she writes that public schools are now mandating menus for our children’s “health and wellness” (“Menu is mandated at the nanny cafe,” Culture, Feb. 23).

Ironically, at the same time, our schools are also actively promoting the psychiatric drugging of our children. Kids as young as 3 are being given medications to help them calm down and be compliant.

I say schools ban the Ritalin and Prozac and let students eat their potato chips. The kids will be a lot better off.
