Michelle Obama was the leader of the lunch brigade for 8 years, literally putting the school lunchtime into chaos and causing a MASSIVE waste of food all over the country.
Children all over the country began throwing away massive amounts of food as Washington DC, under the direction of Michelle Obama, began micro-managing the lunch ladies!
It did not go over well and states began to rebel!
“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!” Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller said to Michelle Obama.
His first agenda item after taking office was to declare amnesty…on cupcakes in Texas schools!
President Donald Trump and Congress are also hearing the message! Cafeteria workers are urging President Trump to scrap the whole Michelle Obama food program.
From the Washington Examiner:
Faced with students who won’t buy lunches low in salt and sugar and jacked up with bland-tasting grains, the nation’s 54,000 school cafeteria workers are urging Washington to junk health-focused rules pushed by former first lady Michelle Obama.
Feeling that they have an ally on their side in the Trump administration, their lobby group, the School Nutrition Association, plans to press for less-strict restrictions on ingredients that taste good.
The reason is simple:
Studies show that public school students aren’t eating what cafeterias are serving, turning many operations into money-losers. While the school districts can opt out, doing so results in federal subsidy cuts for those programs.
“Overly prescriptive regulations have resulted in unintended consequences, including reduced student lunch participation, higher costs and food waste. Federal nutrition standards should be modified to help school menu planners manage these challenges and prepare nutritious meals that appeal to diverse student tastes,” a new policy paper from the association said.
Sid Miller is very correct! The federal government has no business involving itself in the lunchroom. The state really has no business either! Lunch ladies did just fine for decades, making and cooking their menus. Parents need to be left alone with what they place in the lunches they send with their children to school. Lunch ladies need to be left alone to do what they do best!
The opposite just always ends in chaos! Michelle Obama did nothing but create chaos!
Students Revolt Michelle Obama Lunch Plan
Michelle Obama has spent much of her time the last few years attempting to fight hunger by reducing the variety of foods in school lunches.
