This is the way of Public Schools. They don't want competition. Be it from Private Schools, a Voucher System, you name it. This may actually be a good thing in the long run. People might finally wake up and see how anti-competitive they are and that it is actually hurting the kids.

But it's okay, because it's "for the children." And if 60% of the female children wind up with eating disorders because of all the b.s. anti-obesity propaganda... Well... That's okay too. Just ask Marion Nestle', Kelly Brownell and PETA.

A memo to the Los Altos public school board: Don't tell us that you're doing this "for the children" when you know full well you're doing it for the GOVERNMENT. Any school district that interferes with a student's culinary and dietary freedoms is contrary to the basic principles of liberty.
But I guess this is the whole idea, to indoctrinate children with Communist propaganda, in effort to turn the United States into a socialist nation. Parents of Los Altos, WAKE UP! You need to demand that the children be able to exercise their culinary and dietary freedoms as well. Also you need to make the district stop practising political correctness.
It's PAST time to clear out the fringe minority neoliberal deadwood and put some truly fair, truly unbiased, truly objective, pro-business folks on your school board. You need to elect school board members who comport to the needs of the parents and the students, not the draconian dogma of the Centre for Science in the Public Interest or PETA or MoveOn.org or some other left-wing fringe gang that needs to be broken under the RICO Act.
Indeed I would not have such a problem with cafeteria food if it were of better quality. There are a number of local resources with better quality product where Los Altos can obtain food for their schools. But the anti-business non-solutions offered by the Los Altos government school system run contrary to the basic principles of freedom. That attitude will backfire badly on them --- and students and parents alike will rebel.
Do the students a favour and LET THEM EAT WHAT THEY WANT TO EAT. If some hard-working immigrant driving a "taco truck" thinks she can do a better job feeding those kids than the government school can --- LET HER BE and LET HER WORK!
