I'm not sure I agree with this statement. MOST people I know have no problem with "people being discouraged from drinking too much soda" regardless of their views on the nanny state. I guess it depends on the means of discouragement. Education? Banning?

Should the government deliberately make it less healthy and that is less nannyism how? Nannyism is when the school starts telling you what you can send to school in your kids lunch box.
*regarding ""healthier" If the american lunch system actually followed US nutrition guidelines I would be fine with that despite the whole grains. - If they made lunches a lean protein, a serving of whole grains, a serving of veggies and a fruit it would be infinitely better than the "catsup is a veggie" system we have now.
