My niece brought home her report card, and because she made honor roll, she gets rewarded with a McD's cheeseburger....Does this fit in with Michelle Obama's 'healthy lunch' options??

Just cause they get the coupon, that doesn't mean you have to use it! Seriously, get over it , throw it away, and reward her with something else you feel is better.

I don't think this is horrible. I always got to pick what to eat if I got straight A's. Treating Mcdonalds as a treat is the way it should be. Not a regular thing.

Yep.



Lack of exercise.



Kids today do not go out and play like the kids of yesterday.



Parents are too fearful. So parents give them tablets and ps3 instead of hoola hoops and basketballs.

An occasional Mcd meal is not going to make one fat.  They get report cards every 6 to 9 weeks. It is a "treat".  Now I don't care for Mcd, but my kids like one ever now and then. The problem is when people eat this stuff everyday and don't get exercise and have a generally poor diet.

We used to get the personal pan pizzas from pizza hut for the reading program lol I think it was called "Book-it".
