Just a day after House Republicans introduced legislation to roll back some Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations on school meal programs, the USDA announced some flexibility would be granted to some schools for the coming school year when implementing the new policies:

Nanny State PING!
Well that’s mighty white of them.
less niggardly portions
The Food Gestapo finds GummiBears in your lunch box? Never mind going for a time-out in the principal's office. It's the firing squad for you, Kid!
‘Flexibility’ as in the kids can either throw their mostly uneaten, taxpayer-funded lunches into the Red Trash Can or the Blue Trash Can?
Thanks for the ping!
Someone tell me, how is this acceptable?! "Food Nazis"!
Of course, eating small portions of only whole-grain and organic and vegetable-type and free-range-type foods might seem like a good idea, especially if we have an "epidemic of obesity" (particularly affecting children, apparently), but how is this the purview of the Federal Government, to order that it be so? Nice to know there will be "waivers", based on the complete unaffordability of such a "mandate"!
Did you know, Wonder Bread helps build strong bodies 12 ways? LOL! I'm one of the 99% who carried a home-prepared brown bag "sack" lunch 99% of the time...and I'm not close to being obese all these years later, either, SHEESH!
Mrs. Obama would do better to mandate recess ("Let's Move", indeed) than to regulate the children's diets...
Here’s a flexibility suggestion for the USDA and every level of government above that of local school board:
...and other gibberish.
Primarily Republican district?
The kids will look like they did summer camp at Bergen-Belsen.
Primarily Holder's people? They'll squeeze sideways through the double doorway in front.
Its NOT YER FRICKIN CALL!!!!
The year and a half I spent in high skrewel I sure as hell didn’t eat their gruel.
Hash Browns? Oh, skip that. A kid I knew in 1st grade liked paste but, hash browns shouldn’t taste like worn out horse hoof.
Orange juice, grapefruit juice? Got some sugars for sports.
Coffee? Yes, thank you and black will do just fin. “Can I say that?” FU V Stiviano. Wascist wench.
Lunch? Always off campus or what I brought from home.
Cafeteria food is inedible and that’s saying a lot, from a guy who will eat crickets, scrambled cows blood and dozens of other things most people won’t eat.
If I had kids I would never subject them to what should rightfully be called “Abuse”. They’re frickin kids! Who does that to a child?
Animals, that’s who. And the hapless misfits, who would be found guilty in The Hague, for they were “only doing their job and executing an order”.
WTF? Has your mind been playing Twix on you all these years? What of your olfactor? The slop you slap on a childs plate every day....for years, never offended your consciences?
Sick, disgusting and self serving.
I’d really drag you through the mud but, yer pig’s and would simply take further pleasure in a sludge bath, as pigs are wont to do.
Never would I insult my child and abuse them with the swill you sling.
You are fig pluckers, plucking figs and everday you love to pick figs...
Oh? This year they decided anything a kid threw away wasn’t fit to feed a pig.
Will they allow school cafeteria waste to be used to slop pigs next year?
It really makes no nevermind to me - my daughter brings lunch fro home, as do most of her friends. They won’t eat the slop called food that is served in the HS cafeteria. And these are kids that LOVED the school lunches when they were in elementary school.
“It really makes no nevermind to me - my daughter brings lunch fro home-————”
Good for her. She not only is getting something she likes but the lunch is probably more nourishing.
The country has gone mad with all this balanced,low fat,whole grain,free range,all natural nonsense.
Anyone with average intelligence can figure out what to serve a child,the difference between junk food and wholesome food, and that the occasional treat harms no one.
Most kids are not overweight because of overeating. It’s lack of consistent exercise. And the nannies in DC know this.
Pass the legislation, don’t trust mooooochelle and her homies!
“Eat your peas.” - Barack Hussein Obama
And when bringing a lunch from home wasn't an act of rebellion against the State?
It was better then.
kids is school are forced to eat radishes meanwhile the shelf ass mooch eats Cleveland.
The Dept. of Education threaten to cut off funds to States that refuse to toe the line on meals?
If that’s the case it’s a golden opportunity for a State to rid itself of the shackles of the Fed. intrusion into their education.
No money from the Fed ? Don’t send them any.
It’s so stupid, the State sends the Fed. money, the Fed sends some back, (minus all the expenditures associated with the Fed Bureaucracy).
Why not the State keep it all ? Make sense?
Right, if you op out of mooooooochel’s plan you will be able to select bread and water.
