WASHINGTON (AP) -- First lady BIG MOMA Obama is answering Republicans in Congress who want to roll back healthier school meal standards, holding an event at the White House to highlight the success of the health guidelines.
The Tuesday event is an unusual move for the first lady, who has largely stayed away from policy fights since she lobbied for congressional passage of a child nutrition law in 2010.

Big Museum Of Modern Art?
The “school meal critics” are the kids throwing her crap lunches in the trash.
BIG MOMA is the “ebonic” version of BIG MOMMA...
They don't want to roll back healthier meal standards. They want to roll back Michelle Obama's meal standards. There's a difference.
These poor kids are going hungry at school. They tell the kids to have a healthy meal to “feed the brain” so they can concentrate, how well do you think they can concentrate when they are fighting hunger?! My son, 14 years old, comes home hungry every day because the meals at school are TINY. He has headaches and being hungry doesn’t help his headaches either.
Montessori said children need more sugar and fat than adults. Sugar because they use more energy and have a higher metabolism, and fat because their brain cells are still growing and developing.
Clintons vs obamas. That’s truly a choice between two evils.
Why haven’t the school districts and the states challenged these lunches? Seems to me the federal department of education has overstepped its bounds. Come to think of it, why is there a federal department in the first place? Shouldn’t education be the province of the states?
The PTA is against kids?
So the final solution will be to leave the standards in place, but toe ‘tweak’ them so that the old standards are in force?
“The Agriculture Department, which administers the rules, has tweaked them along the way to try to help schools that have concerns. “
Let’s wrap up the “leftovers” and send them to the mooch. Like Mikey in the old cereal commercial, the mooch will eat anything!
Anti American shelf ass pig.
Why haven’t the school districts and the states challenged these lunches?
It is because the Federal Government has taken over a large part of the funding of public education and has taken over the standards for education. It is also because the National Extortion Association, converts dues money from the smartest people in the world, the teachers, into campaign funds for communist inspired politicians to run our lives.
tom jefferson and the adams boys would have put up with the clintons and obamas for about 2 minutes. maybe.
Yep....Michelle is looking---and sounding--- more and more like a candidate everyday. Recent news clips of the I/P making the HS grad speech (where she ordered kids to squeal on their families) shows she's been coached well. The way she used one hand to subtly gesticulate while making her points, was the tipoff.
Let's go back to her last trip on the taxpayers' dime.
That would be the I/P's pricey China trip.... "sold" to Americans as a "non-political" visit...she was just there to chat up education. But all of her appearances and inane remarks were connivingly structured for one purpose: to set herself up as a future candidate....and doing it on our dime.
MISSION CREEP Then the WH let loose with the final explanation....that her trip, and the tripe she was pedaling, was "soft diplomacy" ---- to "ease tensions" between the US and China (which have further deteriorated).
Come again? Who elected this self-serving creep? Who gave her diplomat credentials? She was there to "ease tensions" between the US and China---but flopped bigtime as Us/China relations have deteriorated even further. \
I just hope Valerie Jarett doesn't get carpel tunnel syndrome wire-transferring federal funds offshore for Michele's campaign expenses.
And I just can't wait til candidate Michele announces that she's s-o-o-o-o popular, she raised $50 million dollars in 2 hours. ROTFLOL.
YOU MUST REMEMBER THIS---GHETTO GIRL MAKES GOOD After Obama's 2008 election, hopes were high that Michelle Obamas (gag) political appeal and charisma would enable her to transform it into something that reflected the role of modern women as equal participants in the political process. That never happened----having been burned by the intense criticism she received on the campaign trail when she said, For the first time in my adult lifetime, Im really proud of my country.
To prevent duplication, please do not alter the published headline, thx.
make a lunch for him and put it in a brown bag worked for me all through school.
Doesn’t anybody pack a lunch anymore? I used to take my lunch to school in a lunch box or a bag. Kids probably would like it better than the school lunch.
I’ve read about districts that threw away a home packed lunch and made kids take the school lunch.
a common misconception about Mikey... actually Mikey would not eat everything... he hated everything...
"he won't eat it.. he hates everything." "he likes it! hey, Mikey!"
because Mikey the picky eater liked the cereal, his brothers figured it had to taste good... :)
send a packed lunch with your son, or send a supplemental bag of food for him.
Yogurt, fruit, sandwich, cheese, carrots and dip, graham crackers
If the school interferes or resists, get your doctor to write this as a medical directive or prescription
teens getting daily headaches is very dangerous, with all the other stressors at school - can lead to depression as well as academic struggles
btw, giving my daughter daily magnesium supplement has greatly diminished her headaches
I would get a doctor to write a prescription for homepacked food
Is he not allowed to bring his own lunch?
Her Royal Large-Hindass sets an example.
They'd be labeled racist. Don't forget that the occupiers of our White House are both of Negro blood. Can't challenge or criticize them.
Lack of funds...
Are you saying you are ok with bureaucrats in Washington dictating what local schools serve their kids?
The lot of them should rise up and turn their backs on this would-be queen.
Control the minds and the media and you control the people. This has NOTHING to do with the meals.
I am still waiting for someone to tell me what office this POS was elected to.
Your child has headaches from being hungry and you aren’t packing his lunch? Are you kidding?
The answer is for the feds to get out of the school breakfast and lunch business and let communities figure it out.
No garbage cans allowed at that school?
No, I'm saying that they're not voting against the name of the thing, but the thing itself. If, for example, I proposed a new law called the "Tastier Cafeteria Food Alternatives," and the bill mandated shit sandwiches for everybody, would your vote against it constitute a vote against tastier food?
I would vote against it on the grounds that school lunches are not within the purview of the Federal Government.
In fact, these regulations are symbolic of the gross overreach of the Federal Administrative State.
The parents then should ban together and storm the school and demand a change in that policy then. But I guess that’s to much trouble today as most parents are to busy with their own self important lives to worry about their kids.
I still wish it were possible for a dump truck to make a special delivery to the mooch of these delicious leftovers. Just have them dump it where her faux “garden” once grew. She'll get the message.
No, you didn’t use good reading skills. He has headaches, he is hungry from small lunches served. 2 separate issues though the hunger issues complicates the headaches. He is on medication to try to control the headaches, the medication is not working as well as expected.
you don’t get it ? the students dumped their lunches on the floor ON PURPOSE as a protest.
My reading skills are fine, thanks. I was in a hurry when I typed that (no excuse).
I understand that his already-present headaches are exacerbated by the hunger. I still don’t get why you wouldn’t pack his lunches. His hunger is enough reason to do so, completely apart from the fact that the kid is in pain.
Because I am one of those evil people who have no income, filing for disability because I have chronic pain, failed back surgery and failing hands and arms. I have no way to buy him food to pack for lunches, because then he would also be hungry at night for not having enough for dinner.
Wife said she saw where Magilla told students during her commencement speech to “monitor” their parents because there’s still too much racism. She didn’t tell them who they were supposed to report their findings to.
If I had been a parent there I would have stood up and told my kid “Send Michelle your tuition bills!”
Truseell, I don’t think you’re “evil” for having health and money problems. Why on earth would you think that? I had no idea.
I’m sorry to hear of your medical issues, etc., and will keep you and your son in prayer.
If you get disability, maybe you can do a search for affordable pack lunch ideas....a pb & j sandwich (or two) and a yogurt would be better than what the schools are offering.
Many people on this site are against those who have to accept foodstamps and medicaid. I didn’t mean you personally would feel that way about me, I just hate to have to admit it because I worry about the reaction I will get.
Thank you very much for the prayers. I pray my disability gets approved soon so I can do more things that are important to my kids and be able to pay my bills
