President Donald Trump’s administration is finally eliminating the rest of Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules that made school lunches inedible all across the nation.
Mean Michelle touted her terrible school lunch rules as one of her main “achievements” as first lady during the Obama reign. She claimed she was responsible for making kids “healthier.” But all she really did was cause millions of kids to throw away billions of dollars of food because her ill-conceived rules made the lunches taste and look disgusting.
Kids just ended up throwing out most of these inedible lunches causing billions of dollars in food waste.
And why was Michelle involved at all? She was not elected to anything!
In any case, that dark chapter in school lunches is finally over.
Trump’s new rules allow for looser rules regarding the fruits and vegetables served to kids, and provide for an a la carte meal option, Business Insider reported.
It’s about time!
As BI reported:
Among Obama’s portfolio of policy initiatives as first lady were those meant to curb childhood obesity and promote a healthy lifestyle. “Let’s Move!” promoted exercise, and she advocated for the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which passed in 2010.
The law “authorized funding and set policy for USDA’s core child nutrition programs,” according to the USDA. One of these was the National School Lunch Program, which feeds roughly 30 million children in the United States.
It set higher nutrition standards, encouraged more fruits and vegetables, and reduced sodium, saturated fat and trans fat intake.
But the new rules scale back all the harsh requirements Obama forced on schools; rules that made food unpalatable to everyone.
The new rules are aimed at ending the billions in food waste that Obama’s rules caused.
“Schools and school districts continue to tell us that there is still too much food waste and that more common-sense flexibility is needed to provide students nutritious and appetizing meals. We listened and now we’re getting to work,” said Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said in a statement.
The Trump administration has done an admirable job of steadily eliminating the baleful influence that the Obamas had on this country. This is just one more very welcome scaling back of the Obama’s idiotic legacy.Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
