School Lunch guidelines rolled back on Michelle Obama’s Birthday
I was finishing high school when the Obamas where in office. I remember when we had good food the students would eat. When I graduated I did not even bother with lunch because it was disgusting. So if this is true which I think it is but not entirely sure, this is a good thing. She tried putting her beliefs into schools lunch and failed.
Exactly. What Michelle was aiming for it to fight obesity. But most kids in school are not obese at least not from the food they get at school. And it kind of ruined it for those who are athletes and need higher quality foods, or the students who don't have a weight issue. The idea was good but the way she implemented it was bad.
Some of U.S. wouldn't know what's good for us if it was shoved down our throats.
"She tried putting" …. scientifically proven and widely KNOWN health practices in children's lifestyle. SHAME ON HER! Let'em eat PIZZA! cheeseburgers, French fries …. 'til they die (at a young age)! Hmmmm, maybe they'll become that 400lb hacker on the bed getting Trump elected …. MICHELLE! COME BACK!
It wasn't "her beliefs" she tried putting in schools, it was COMMON SENSE!
When I graduated from high school, my future mother-in-law was a school dietician. The food was a bit different back then, they had burgers … maybe once or twice a month, but they had roast beef, ham, chicken AND ALWAYS "vegetables"! "Trump anti-matter!"
Trump-the-hump can eat what he wants … he's occupying the White House at the moment. He thinks what's good for John Trump is good enough for everybody! Like food …. like authoritarianism …. like porn stars … Nobody following him gives a rat's ass about what happens to their children in the next few years … or beyond! They can't! Let'em eat Trump food! :-(
Nobody is trying to tell parents what their children should eat. This initiative was focused on the meals provided IN SCHOOLS. You know, those places where the government mandate children to be for 6 hours a day from the ages of 4 to 16?
If the government want those institutions to serve healthier foods, it is the government's prerogative to do that. Particularly if it makes children healthier. You know, that group of people who are under the protection of the state and for whom society has a responsibility to care?
No child should be eating cheeseburgers and fries every day for lunch, and if they have to change the menu in order to stop that from happening, then so be it!
What's wrong with roast chicken and vegetables?
As for "athletes needing higher quality food", athletes eat healthily, as a matter of necessity. You won't catch an athlete eating burger and fries day in day out.
