Generation of turkeys

All children should have the opportunity to eat a healthy breakfast. However, The Bee's editorial [Oct. 9] suggests that "if the children don't respond to the cafeteria cattle call, try grab 'n' go, breakfast on the bus, second-chance breakfast served at midmorning break, classroom breakfast or other variations that appeal to the children."

It's too much to ask of the children that they eat breakfast in the cafeteria?

Soon these children will end up like domestic turkeys that have been released in the wild. They have become so passive that they stand wherever they have been released, waiting to be fed. If a predator doesn't get them, they just starve to death.
