MADISON, Wis. (WMDX) — In a recent episode of the Earl Ingram Show, host Earl Ingram led a discussion with callers on the critical issue of children’s welfare in society. Ingram opened the dialogue with a poignant question, “How can there be anything more important in a civilized society than children? I’m starting to believe we’re not such a civilized society as we claim that we are.” This set the tone for a conversation that delved deep into the societal neglect of children, especially in underprivileged communities.
The conversation surrounded the news that advocates from The Healthy School Meals for All Wisconsin Coalition and Wisconsin Democrats in the State Legislature pitched free school lunches. Representatives Francesca Hong, Kristina Shelton, and Senator Chris Larson are supporting this effort with legislation.
The show’s callers added depth to the discussion, sharing their perspectives and reinforcing Ingram’s points. One of the callers, Mary, emphasized the critical role of nutrition in children’s development, saying, “Nutrition is the number one thing inhibiting children from learning and from, you know, getting there.”
Tom, another caller, expressed his frustration with the political system’s treatment of children: “We don’t care about our children, and we just use them as props. We just use them as an opportunity.” His comment reflected a common sentiment among the callers and the host about the exploitation of children for political gain.

Ingram highlighted the absurdity of political debates over providing basic necessities like food and healthcare to children. He pointed out the irony of a nation that prides itself on global intervention yet fails to address the needs of its own children.
Ingram and his callers agreed that a shift in societal values is necessary to ensure a brighter future for the next generation. The show concluded with a call to action for society to recognize the importance of nurturing and supporting children, as they are the key to a more secure and prosperous future.
