I would like to consider this matter settled for now. We can revisit it in the future if there is good reason to.
Two parents had a house full of kids. They'd been quite busy over the years and birthed 10 more lives into the world. Their house had to be run like a mini-camp, so everything would be orderly. The father had a well-paying job, and the mother spent the day with the children. They were in no finacial trouble, but the parents insisted on making the kids Raman noodles for lunch, potato for supper. Every single day.
Many months of complaining about the current feeding system, and even offering specific ideas, such as meals with protein and perhaps dessert once in a while finally forced the parent's to "give in."
They passed out the voting ballots, the choices: Switch to soup for lunch and cabbage for supper, or keep things the same. Forced to choose, everyone chose to keep the noodles and potato. Content, the parents called the issue closed, and wouldn't hear it anymore. Jury selection begins next month.
