Time to celebrate. Yet another one of the Obama’s odious, un-American regulations has been reversed by the Trump administration. This time it is the end of the rule banning our school children from drinking chocolate milk in school.
You’ll recall that buttinsky Michelle Obama jumped in to force her strict dietary ideas on school lunches and when she was done interfering, kids across the country were left starving at lunch and food waste soared as kids threw away the unpalatable garbage that Michele tried to feed them.
But, finally, the Trump administration has put an end to the stupid rules.
It is one of the last remnants of Obama’s failed attempt to control our children from Washington.
As EAGNews reports:
Diane Pratt-Heavner, spokeswoman for the School Nutrition Association representing local cafeteria workers, explained the situation to the Associated Press.
Pratt-Heavner “said whole-grain bread and buns generally aren’t a problem. But she said students complained about other items, in many cases because of cultural or regional preferences.
“Finding whole-grain biscuits and grits that students like are a challenge in the U.S. South, she said, while tortillas are a challenge in the Southwest,” the AP reports.
The SNA reports nearly 2 million fewer kids are eating school lunch each day since Obama-inspired rules took effect.
The recent changes mean schools no longer need a special waiver from the government for only whole grain breads, and cafeterias can now serve low-fat chocolate milk without Uncle Sam’s permission. Students could only get fat-free flavored milk under previous rules.
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue slammed Obama’s manipulations saying that her rules utterly failed to improve the nutrition of America’s students.
“If kids are not eating what is being served, they are not benefiting, and food is being wasted,” Perdue said.
“We will listen to schools, and make common-sense changes as needed, to ensure they can meet the needs of their students based on their real-world experience in local communities,” he added as he announced the end of Michelle Obama’s program.
It’s all good news as Trump takes yet another step toward eliminating the pernicious effect Obama had on our country.
