NY School Dumps Michelle Obama Food Plan After Kids Complain of Hunger
Jammie Wearing Fools ^ | 07/09/2013 | Jammie

Posted on 07/10/2013 6:11:49 AM PDT by Rusty0604

New York’s Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake school district has become the latest casualty in first lady Michelle Obama’s preferred lunch plan, dropping the menu after too many students complained of hunger.

“[Food service manager Nicky] Boehm and her staff worked hard to implement the new regulations, but there were just too many problems and too many foods that students did not like and would not purchase,” said Assistant Superintendent Chris Abdoo about the National School Lunch Program in a statement reported by EAGNews.org. “Students complained of being hungry with these lunches and the district lost money.”

Undaunted, the nattering nabobs from the nanny state will soon be pushing Greek yogurt on the starving schoolkids.

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer says New York is one of four states chosen to participate in a U.S. Department of Agriculture pilot program to purchase Greek yogurt for schools.

The very idea that children have the same nutritional needs as a fifty-year old overweight black woman is narcissistic beyond belief.

Michelles needs have nothing to do with this show she is putting on.

Paula Deen knows how Michelle really eats.

All of this is garbage for the Michelle show.

Can we dump Michelle since the majority of us complain of nausea when listening to her? (Another wench with the IQ of an MSM news reader who boinked her way into the public eye.)

IIRC there is a Greek yogurt monopoly in NYS. I’m sure he finances Schumer in return for government funding.

Michelle’s plan for school lunches: It costs way too much, people don’t want it, has unintended consequences, and as it begins to get implemented people hate it.

Barky’s plan for socialized healthcare: It costs way too much, people don’t want it, has unintended consequences, and as it begins to get implemented people hate it.

Libtarded socialist central planning at work... always the same outcome.

FLOTUS is queen. I'm sure the majority of these children's’ parents voted for this, so let them eat it.

How dare they question the judgment of their betters.

No doubt the maker of Greek yogurt is a major Democrat contributor. Otherwise, why in the world would someone have such a stupid notion?

Greek yogurt is really good, it just has less whey than regular yogurt.
And Yoplay (sp) is not yogurt, if that’s what the kids have been eating no wonder they think regular yogurt is gross.

Greek yogurt is just regular yogurt with less whey.
Are you sure there is a lobby for that?
Nearly every yogurt manufacture makes Greek yogurt.

What is it with Greek yogurt? I notice that it’s more expensive than Dannon, and way more expensive than store brands.

Hey. those are almost the same word my wife said when I showed her the illegal aliens woman's food plan for kids.

She ended by saying "God help her two girls".

I’d think the kids would eat the greek yogurt, as long ias it’s covered with hot fudge sauce and whipped cream, and has some Oreos on the side.

Greek yogurt has the whey strained out so it has less sugar, fewer carbs and more protein. It’s thick and tart.

It's made with cream and milk. Reg yogurt is milk only.

Frankly, I'd rather have real raspberries and real cream as a treat.

To me....yogurt is just another junk food.

Here is the big picture. Michelle Obama was educated as a lawyer (and voluntarily surrendered her law license), but she has NO training as a dietitian or in nutrition. Yet, people think Moochee is an absolute genius when it comes to feeding people. [Why is it her husband hits the fast food places whenever he can escape her clutches?]

At the same time as Moochee lectures the peasants about good and healthy eating, she pigs out and has a caboose the size of the U.S. Standard Rail Gage of 4 feet 8.5 inches. Can anyone spell hypocrite? [I knew you could.]

I am a lunch lady and unfortunately have to serve this horrible food. I blame the schools for having become so dependent on the government that they don’t know how or don’t want to get off the merry go round. At my school we serve about 400 kids. Less than 20% receive free/reduced lunches. I have told my supervisor that if the school would just absorb those kids, they could serve what ever they want and would easily make up the difference in new and added revenue. They just don’t get it. The government gives these hand outs so they feel obligated to take it.

Kids need ham and cheese with lettuce and tomato. A cheese burger with lettuce and tomato, give them home fries instead of French fries.

They want a snack? A granola bar, pudding, jello, pretzels work.

I’m sure 100% of the kids would appreciate it if the school took your advice. Maybe you could get the parents involved.
Here’s a video where the kids are protesting the lunches:

I think food is primarily to fuel the body for and to recover from activity, to grow or maintain a healthy body, to stave off disease and to maintain health. Maybe that's why I'm a solid 6'2" and 180 lbs, at almost 50 years old, and I consume about 3000 calories a day. Healthy food doesn't have to be pap, but neither should most food be exclusively for pleasure (IMHO). Some foods I eat, I don't particularly like, but there's a different kind of pleasure in being in better shape than most 20 year olds.

Some yogurts are nutritionally excellent, most are candy. Here's an example one I like:

If you compare some yogurt nutritional values with ice cream, I’ll take the ice cream. It just doesn’t “sound or feel” healthy to some consumers.

It would probably be good to give kids some flavored “Kefir”, which is like a yoghurt smoothie, and commonly available. The reason is that it is loaded with probiotic live-culture bacteria, 10 or more different strains. It is a little sour, but not intolerable, and not as sour as regular yoghurt.

And having a healthy intestinal flora has lots of health advantages, especially in avoiding blooms of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which can be deadly and are increasingly common. Some doctors are now recommending probiotics in between times of taking antibiotics.

Other things that healthy gut flora do include making food more nutritious and vitamins more available by breaking it down prior to digestion, training the immune system to respond better without overreacting, and regulating the digestive flow.

Would Moochee eat this simple fare? Or, would she opt for Kobe beef, Beluga caviar, Dom Perignon champagne, pate de fois gras, Gouda cheese, and chocolate truffles. My guess is she didn't get her enormous caboose by eating watercress sandwiches and drinking Perrier.
