One of the WORST things to come out of the Obama administration has been Michelle Obama’s AWFUL School Lunch Program and it is getting kicked to the curb!
It has been a national disgrace. Kids and Parents hate it. The disgusting food choices have been documented on social media countless times. Children have been throwing their school lunch in the trash en masse!
It was just another example of liberals wanting to micromanage what goes on in the schools. The school lunch “ladies” have done a terrific job of cooking for school children for decades. The LAST thing they needed was for the great bureaucracy to interfere!
The Conservative Tribune reports:
A document released on the website of Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., called for the repeal of certain parts of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act Of 2010, the legislative bill that helped enshrine Michelle Obama’s signature program into law. It’s part of a wider initiative called released under the title “First 100 Days: Rules, Regulations, and Executive Orders to Examine, Revoke and Issue.”
“The largest of the five school- and center-based programs, the National School Lunch Program, fed about 30 million children each school day in 2014 and cost $12.7 billion,” the report read. “The rules are hallmarks of the Obama administration, but kids aren’t eating the foods, industries can’t comply with the standards, and schools are wasting money.”
EAGnews reported that since the restrictions on fat, calories, sodium, sugar and other nutritional parameters were enacted in 2012, over 1.2 million students have stopped eating school lunches altogether.
Thanks Michelle Obama for causing chaos in our school cafeterias. Texas Agriculture Commissioner stated it best at the 2014 Texas Republican Convention when he brought the house down with an open message to Michelle Obama concerning her school lunch program::
“Lady… we’ve been raising bright, healthy, strappin’ young men and women in Texas for nearly 200 years…and we don’t need you, or anyone else coming to Texas and tellin’ us how to raise our kids!”
Boom…Buh Bye lunch program!
