It is estimated that this % has no quantifiable impact on whether or not schools should be the ones required to handle the diets of children. Especially when healthy options exist presently. This number does signify however that Americans in general either,
A. Haven't got as much time to prepare healthy meal choices and instead opt for quicker meals, be they fast food, or microwaveable meals in a box. This is symbolic of the current economical situation where families often work varying shifts, or multiple jobs, just to keep a roof over their heads, clothes on their back, and hopefully food on the table.
B. Are to lazy to care for themselves, and opt to have food made ready to eat, from similar sources to the above.
While it is unfortunate that Americans are getting fatter, the onus to change shouldn't be placed on the government, it should be placed on the people. If a parent wants their kids to eat a salad at lunch then they should send their kid with salad, or hope the kid makes the proper choice in their eating habits when getting food from a cafeteria.
