Michelle Obama was America’s worst First Lady.
She worked hand-in-glove with her husband to “fundamentally transform” America.
But she just got the worst news of her life and you’ll never guess what happens next.
Michelle Obama’s takeover of the school lunch program was the cornerstone of her “legacy” as First Lady.
Her command-and-control Soviet style power grab infuriated children across America as they were forced to eat a coastal liberal’s version of lunch instead of the normal food they used to enjoy.
But that just came to an end.
Donald Trump was elected to rollback Obama’s legacy.
And it’s exactly what he did when his administration announced they were undoing another one of Michelle’s power grabs by allowing chocolate milk to return to cafeteria menus.
“The Trump administration is ending yet another of Michelle Obama’s hated, overly strict school lunch rules by bringing chocolate milk back to school lunch menus.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday announced a new rule set to take effect on July 1 after the period of public comment. The new rule relaxes sodium limits and Obama’s whole-grain requirements. The rule will also allow milk with one percent fat back on the menu, ABC News reported.
“Schools need flexibility in menu planning so they can serve nutritious and appealing meals,” Perdue said this week. “Schools want to offer food that students actually want to eat. It doesn’t do any good to serve nutritious meals if they wind up in the trash can.”
Perdue has been dismissing Michelle Obama’s signature school lunch rules all year.”
Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue blasted Obama’s lunch rules as wasteful because too many children were not eating the food her program provided.
This led to waste as the leftovers would be tossed out because the children would rather go hungry than eat what the Obamas demanded.
Breitbart also reports:
“This is not reducing the nutritional standards whatsoever,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in May when announcing the Agriculture Department’s intention to bring chocolate milk back to schools. “I wouldn’t be as big as I am today without flavored milk.”
Perdue also slammed Obama’s rules as leading to too much waste. “If kids aren’t eating the food, and it’s ending up in the trash, they aren’t getting any nutrition — thus undermining the intent of the program,” he said.
Critics of Obama’s lunch rules pointed out that they led to higher costs for schools across the country. In the fiscal year 2015 alone, Obama’s school food requirements cost school budgets an additional $1.22 billion.
The School Nutrition Association and the School Superintendents Association have been supportive of Perdue’s efforts to scale back Obama’s rules. The groups recently noted that the “overly prescriptive regulatory requirements” of Obama’s school lunch program had forced school districts to “financially subsidize meals at the expense of educational programs.”
