Public School Kids Protest 'Let's Move' Lunches As First Daughters Get Meatball Subs, Ice Cream
CNS News ^ | 5-27-14 | Barbara Boland

Posted on 05/27/2014 1:29:17 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

With public school students using #ThanksMichelle to tweet photos of their skimpy, stomach-turning school lunches, I decided to look at what Michelle Obama's daughters are served at Sidwell Friends school, and it turns out the girls dine on lunches from menus designed by chefs.

While the Obama daughters have enjoyed dishes like chicken coconut soup, local butternut squash soup, crusted tilapia, they also get their fill of what Mrs. Obama might consider junk food.

This week, for example, they'll enjoy meatball subs, BBQ wings, and ice cream, in addition to chicken curry, deviled egg salad and the intriguing "Chef's Choice."

Sidwell Friends has even been rated the #1 School Lunch program in America.

If you served that public school lunch in a prison there would be 97 lawsuits filed the following morning.

“’Let’s Move’ Lunches”

That’s truth in advertising, I suppose, but they might want to rethink the name.

The presidents spouse has no authority to make rules for anything. No more so than the spouse of a hired manager of any company. Michelle should shut up and tend to her family.

This reminds me of a story in which Chin Hui-ti, who reigned as emperor of China in the late third century AD was told that his subjects did not have enough rice to eat. He is said to have responded, "why don't they eat meat?"

there might even be a riot, like the one that broke out in the Alcatraz cafeteria many moons ago...

It’s almost like rich people get better stuff than the average Joe.

Is that pic of sub-ghetto Shepherd’s pie really what our kids are forced to eat?

How about “beef nuggets,” under-cooked cheese pizza, “cheese sticks,” etc. as the main course...

On a positive note, also served on occasion is a decent salad, Romaine mixed with iceberg lettuce, and watered-down low-fat ranch dressing. Sometimes, rather than canned fruit or “flavored” applesauce, there is fresh fruit, such as half an apple, half an orange or one of those little oranges, or a banana.

I hated the lunches served at my elementary school so much that I would bike to my grandmother’s house and she would fix lunch for me. Even if it was Chef Boy-Ar-Dee raviolis, if was tastier than the slop that they served at school.

They served baked beans that smelled so bad that they made me nauseous. The cook lived around the corner from me, and I was amazed that one of my classmates would stop at her house on the way home from school on bean day and buy a quart of beans to take home to her family.

Another priceless offering was hard boiled eggs soaked in beat juice to color them pink. Ugh!

They’d serve themselves better using all of that outrage to protest the fact that private school kids are getting superior educations too.

Looks like something our dog urped under my chair last week while we were eating. (Golden ate a pair of underwear or something that must’ve been clogging her stomach. Hubby was making stir fry and had some fatty meat he threw to the dogs. Golden loved it. Well, until she didn’t. It looked like a giant colon expelled right there. As in, it was colored like that bottom picture but was shaped like a long bit of colon or a yucky looking sausage.) one of our children just had to take a picture to send to our daughter who has a weak stomach. Lol

I was at school recently when they served chicken and sausage gumbo. I conned a bunch of the boys into eating one piece of chicken. They said the gumbo was not bad. A few of them continued eating. My son just looked at his plate with a wrinkled up face. He ate his roll, his fruit, and drank his milk. For $1 he ate one piece of the chicken. He said it tasted good, but he refused to eat more. The thing is, when I send him to school with a sandwich, he will eat three bites. He eats all of his chips and fruit though. My next youngest son will eat whatever we send him or some of what the cafeteria serves. If the main entree is disgusting, he gets salad and eats about half of it.

You think the Obama kids eat that kind of crap? If not, then neither should anyone else! Michelle can shut her face about what kids that don’t belong to her eat, period.

Does anyone remember “We can’t have 5% of the world’s population and use 25% of the world’s resources and expect the world to say that’s OK.”

Anyone? Anyone? I remember it well, and knew exactly what it meant. Feeding our kids slop while 0bama’s kids dine like elite royalty is what it meant.

Geesh. Food looks just as disgusting now as it did back when I was a kid over 30 years ago. If I forgot to bring a sack lunch I didn’t eat. Even if I got the free lunch coupons I wouldn’t eat that crap. There was always a way to hustle some food.

I thought gruel was only in books.
