Savage: President Trump’s admin rolls back Michelle Obama’s school lunch program – on her birthday!

I remember when this program was rolled out. The kids HATED it and A LOT of food went to waste.

Happy Birthday Moochelle!

From Daily Mail: Donald Trump’s administration proposed new school lunch guidelines Friday that would undo several changes made by Michelle Obama to get more fruit and veggies on the menu: a move that comes on the former first lady’s birthday.

The Department of Agriculture, which oversees the Food and Nutrition Service, said it is proposing new rules ‘to simplify meal service and reduce food waste.’ That would include ‘increasing flexibility in the “vegetable subgroups” requirements for school lunches.’

But the changes would allow schools to cut the amount of vegetables and fruits required at lunch and breakfasts while giving them the ability to offer more pizza, burgers and fries instead.

It would also undo rules championed by Michelle Obama as part of her Let’s Move initiative and The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010.

Friday is the former first lady’s 56th birthday.

Michelle Obama made healthy eating a signature issue during her time in the White House. ‘I am determined to work with folks across this country to change the way a generation of kids thinks about food and nutrition,’ she said.

Trump, however, is known for his love of fast food. He often ate McDonalds or Kentucky Fried Chicken on the campaign trail. One of his favorite meals is a hamburger with a side salad consisting of an edge of iceberg lettuce covered in blue cheese. Apple pie with ice cream is his favorite dessert.

Consumer groups slammed the proposed school meal changes. (#OrangeManBad!)

‘The proposed rule would allow anything that might be allowable as an entrée on any one school day to be served as an a la carte item every single day. In practice, if finalized, this would create a huge loophole in school nutrition guidelines, paving the way for children to choose pizza, burgers, French fries, and other foods high in calories, saturated fat or sodium in place of balanced school meals every day,’ Center for Science in the Public Interest Deputy Director of Legislative Affairs Colin Schwartz said in a statement.

Big Mike’s approved school lunch, as shown in the first pic, is too skimpy for children and teens who are still growing. But Trump’s fast food is not a good solution either, being loaded with fat and calories. Surely the government and “public” schools can come up with school lunches that are healthy, nutritious AND appetizing? How about a national competition for the best menu? Maybe Melania can take this on as one of her projects?

I think the point of school lunch is to prevent kids from going hungry. Providing choices of food they will actually eat is the only way to do that. Everyone knows you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Why spend billions of taxpayer dollars on lunches for schools and watch the children put it in the garbage?

Their parents should make sure they have enough to eat. Once upon a time parents did that. But of course they aren’t going to waste money on food when they have their iPhones and unlimited data plans to pay for. Which leaves The State. It is what it is. But you’re right, I’ve mentioned before that I used to run a food bank and we would throw out most of the fresh produce. The People want convenience “food” crap

In the bizarro world of SJW they want to promote Big Mikes’ supposedly healthy lunch program while simultaneously glorifying fat,unhealthy Plus size models. Do we see the problem here?

Yes, oblivious to their own contradictions. If you point them out they call you a Nazi. The problem is that the SJW’s are living among us and walking around unmedicated. Yeah I know, kinda simplistic 🙂

Whatever those ‘food” items are at the top aren’t fit to be fed to hogs. The last thing we need are nutritional guidelines from Mike. I imagine they would be heavy on soy. It makes no difference what Trump proposes, it’s going to be slammed regardless. To hell with their stupid nanny-state guidelines, kids should just bring lunches from home. I did and they always included fruit. I guess todays single moms are too busy-busy to make lunches for their kids. Or too lazy and stupid

Taxpayers will shoulder the burden one way or another. Pres. Trump’s diet will help malnourished kids become obese adults who will consume mega healthcare dollars. As long as people refuse to educate and take care of themselves and their young, the problem will continue. Federally funded school lunch programs have never been nutritionally sound. Throwing in a couple of GMO-ridden cauliflower stalks doesn’t help. Neither does pizza dough made with insecticide-laced wheat. This isn’t nutrition; it’s poison.
