Good news! Michelle Obamas inedible school lunches are about to be a thing of the past. Michelle Obama admittedly loves enchiladas and french fries (and her figure showed it), but she loved to lecture everyone elses children about eating vegetables.
This is what you get with an elite, overreaching government, folks; they tell your children what to eat.
Via The Daily Caller:
Perdue and Kansas Republican Sen. Pat Roberts will release a new interim rule designed to provide flexibility for school meals at an elementary school in Leesburg, Va. Monday, a USDA press release stated. The exact nature of the interim rule is unclear, but the USDA said it will provide regulatory flexibility for public schools.
School children hated Michelle Obamas lunch program. The food went to waste because the children couldnt stomach it. Typical leftist policygood intentions, bad results.

Do they think without some sort of federal mandates, schools are going to serve raw cat or something?
Drain the swamp! Abolish the Dept. of Agriculture.
“The exact nature of the interim rule is unclear, but the USDA said it will provide regulatory flexibility for public schools.”
Her’s a clue! Just pull the USDA completely out of any roll in school lunches. I think local school officials can figure out what to feed students at lunch way better than either the Feds or the State.
How do you unravel “all this for a damn flag?”.
“Abolish the Dept. of Agriculture.”
Here’s what President Eisenhower had to say about the USDA!
“You know, farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil, and you’re a thousand miles from the corn field.”
I think I read that there are more USDA employees today than there are farmers. That’s what’s wrong with the picture.
These are just some of the reasons why my bumper sticker reads
Obama’s True Legacy
How much produce did The Dept. of Agriculture produce last year?
The government has absolutely no right to tell us what to eat....or tell us how much we should weigh for that matter.
School lunches are a local issue. Moms and Dads should define and prepare the meals - not the Department of Agriculture. This worked in America for hundreds of years.
Farmers are smart people. They don't need big goberment to tell them how to grow things.
Regulations: The school lunch program dates back to WWI when many of the recruits were so malnourished, they were unfit for service. A school lunch program was established to rectify that. Remember, when the government mandates an action, there better be regulations laid down or the fraud, waste and abuse will be beyond comprehension.
Abollish the Dept. of Agriculture: This department had a similar basis in founding as the school lunch program. At the outset of WWI the country was strapped to feed its soldiers and the general population. A fetal dept of Ag was begun to alleviate this problem. It was not enough as WWII showed us we still could not feed the troops and the folks. After WWII, Eisenhauer instituted a dept of Ag and a series of price supports and storage systems to ensure that enough food grains were on hand to cover famine years, war time emergencies and such. Regulations applied to these programs were not sufficient to stop the ultimate abuse but they did feet the kids at school and stockpiled food supplies to our advantage.
Why does the federal government have any say or role whatsoever in the provision of government school lunches?
The war against healthy fats, proper nutrition etc shows in the obesity rates of today’s children. Private schools are not much better.
Obama was Bush’s legacy.
Big lobby for agriculture...it’s all about MONEY.
“Obama was Bushs legacy.”
Agree, Bush is Obama level awful perhaps more so
like you said local issue. let the school district decide how its going to do a school lunch program or even if they are going to have one at all. I remember forty-five years ago when I was in first grade all the kids did sack lunches and the school provided milk for either a nickel or a dime. I cant remember the price it was so long ago and I was only six years old.
Take a look at this:
This is “your USDA” in action. BTW, this farmer won at the SCOTUS. All your history aside, most of what the USDA “does” today needs to be terminated.
When I was going to “Berkeley” ( yeah, UC Berkeley, 1965) I worked in a local Del Monte Peach Cannery, where we had USDA “inspectors” who made sure we “threw away” a certain percentage of our throughput to “maintain price supports” for peaches. Imagine that, the people of the world don’t have enough to eat, even today, and yet we throw away perfectly edible fruit to “manage the market!” And here in CA where water is a precious commodity, we essentially pi$$ it away raising fruit that we ultimately throw away. P.S. If you like peaches, never work where they are processed. I still don’t eat them because of the images in my mind of how the fruit is handled. The only saving grace is the fact that they heat it up in the sealed cans to kill anything inside that’s still growing.
