Michelle and Barack were spotted lunching in NYC yesterday, and most likely, their menu did not include any of the horrors that ex-FLOTUS foisted on kids.
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….
Mark Meadows, who heads the House Freedom Caucus, is leading the fight to repeal the former first lady’s “Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.”
“The federal government involving itself in what is served in school lunches is the epitome of government overreach,” Meadows told Secrets. “Districts that have chosen to opt out have been able to provide more options to students and better-quality services. At the beginning of the year, I released a report of more than 300 regulations the Trump administration can undo, which included overly burdensome federal lunch program standards. It’s the perfect example of how government interference generally makes a small problem far worse.”

I hear they will start serving this food at the illegal immigrant detention centers… to deter repeat offenders. 😉
Speaking of Good Eating; Monday’s NY Post hard copy had a good ad triptych by Heinz.
Full page (pg 15) was a pic of French fries with the caption, Pass the Heinz. Then on pg 19, full page, pic of hamburger with same caption. Lastly, pg 23, full page, a pic of a piece of steak on a fork with same caption, Pass the Heinz. (now nowhere is ketchup mentioned, so you could think Heinz 57 steak sauce if you want, but the fries & burger pics make clear the implied ketchup)
Maybe Trump admin can get Heinz to partner on new school lunch rules, if any.
