Default Trump administration to change Obama-era school lunch policy

Trump administration to change Obama-era school lunch policy

Gee why don't ya go back to throwing trash on the highway, Mr. Dumpf; after all a Democrats wife started the Make America Beautiful campaign.

I can't help but wonder if that open comment period will be anything like Ajit Pai's fake one was at the FCC.

Beans and rice and kale, or cheese burgers and tater tots.
The average American kid will choose the latter.

Why don't you try to make a reasoned argument for a change? Michelle Obama's school lunch program didn't help reduce childhood obesity and it increased food waste. It is a feel good program that failed. There is no reason to keep it going besides it was Michelle's crusade.

A far more effective approach would be to encourage parents to have children bring their lunch from home. Remember when Paul Ryan suggested that? Democrats ridiculed the idea. That would make children less dependent on the Federal government. Bad idea.

First ladies are not elected or even appointed. They have no authority to make policy or hire gardeners to tend their feel good gardens.

When I was elementary school age, we went home for lunch or if you lived far enough away, you brought your own. Problem solved.

I used to meet my grandson for lunch at school during Michelle Obama's food policy days. I was shocked at the amount of food that got dumped in the trash, often the entire meal. The kids didn't like it. Eliminating this crappy food plan is a good thing.

Exactly. No one is going to be able to force a one size fits all program on the masses, it is a fools errand. While she may have had good intentions, the idea that making kids consume undesirable food for a school lunch in an effort to confront childhood obesity was impracticable and misguided.

If people are serious about childhood obesity, take the kids cells phones and PlayStation's away and force them to actually move around and become active. Too many kids decline to play sports because they believe they already doing so on their PlayStation without have to exert actual physical effort.

I can't believe that none of you see this is not for the good of children but for lobbyists for crap fat and cholesterol sugar highs.
Also, I can't believe some still insist they know nothing of first ladies' benevolent campaigns all through modern history to improve our country and its citizenry by example and volunteerism.
And offering anecdotal evidence most likely the result of poor cooking skills.

most of that would qualify on the old menu except fresh fruit not syrupy, and maybe replace the hot dog with meat?

Most of us have what is widely known as common sense and don't fall for every charlatan boasting that they know better than everyone else about how to live their lives. Again, if you want to go after childhood obesity, the first step is to make kids move around and engage in physical activity. Simply replacing a hamburger with kale is not a practical solution.
