First lady responds to school meal critics
From the article:
First lady Michelle Obama is striking back at House Republicans who are trying to weaken healthier school meal standards, saying any effort to roll back the guidelines is “unacceptable.”
The president of the School Nutrition Association said Tuesday that the school officials invited to the White House weren’t representative of those who have concerns.
“Our request for flexibility under the new standards does not come from industry or politics, it comes from thousands of school cafeteria professionals who have shown how these overly prescriptive regulations are hindering their effort to get students to eat healthy school meals,” said SNA’s Leah Schmidt.
I think the food that the children throw away should be documented. If the children after months (years, now) of eating this way are still throwing away a considerable amount of food then restrictions need to be eased.
Seems Michele Obama is a bit of a bully like her husband. They make a good pair.
