First lady, Rachael Ray serve turkey tacos to schoolchildren (Food Police invade Florida)
The Hill ^ | 1/26/12 | Geneva Sands-Sadowitz

Posted on 01/26/2012 9:52:49 AM PST by Recovering_Democrat

First Lady Michelle Obama received a warm welcome from the students and teachers at an elementary school Wednesday where she promoted new tougher nutrition standards for school meals.

The students clapped and cheered as Mrs. Obama entered the cafeteria at Parklawn Elementary School in Alexandria, Va.

The first lady, who was was joined by celebrity chef Rachael Ray and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, picked up food from the lunch line before sitting with the kids and teachers.

Obama and Vilsack unveiled the updated nutrition standards for school meals required by the 2010 school nutrition bill.

Check out this quote from Hussein's wife, who apparently doesn't have a clue about what constitutes a "right":

"When we send our kids to school, we have a right to expect that they won’t be eating the kind of fatty, salty, sugary foods that we're trying to keep from them when they're at home. We have a right to expect that the food they get at school is the same kind of food that we want to serve at our own kitchen tables," said Mrs. Obama in remarks at the school.

I don't think this is an example of her not knowing how to eat a taco.

It looks more like she's hurling into a napkin.

I doubt if Michelle could cook her way out of a paper bag.

Hey This is a Great Idea. Kids should avoid red meat. It will drive down the price thereby making it more affordable for me. Oh yes the law of unintended consequences. I LOVE IT.

So if, as a parent, you object to the food served at your child’s school, perhaps you could make a lunch for your child. Just a suggestion.

She doesn't know how to munch on a taco. Not like Hillary.

Besides, Barack Hussein Obama said that TAMALES(note the proper pronunciation) are Michelle's favorite food. "You don't want to get between Michelle and a tamale."

It's okay though, she keeps movin'. Never puts on a pound of fat...

Isn't this the problem she's trying to fix?

Turkey Tacos, yick.

Also, Rachel Ray goes on my "Do not Watch" list, now. I'll mention it to my (conservative) father, he watches her show because he thinks she's cute.

She reached her natural limit long ago.

I'm more concerned with the additional wheat this adds to their diet.

This taco stuff is all cra* food in my book. Small bowl of soup and ham sandwich. Even better....make your own damn lunch. Feeding you is not the governments job.

Just a week ago we took 5 pounds of fresh turkey breast, chopped it up, turned it into great taco meat using our own blend of spices and stuff, and 'maters, with green chilies to make it HOT.

Served it on brand new tacos fresh roasted in the oven, with guacamole sauce, beans, cheese, lettuce ~ had the kids over.

ATE IT ALL!

So, I've seen the ground turkey at the grocery store, sort of like a replacement for hamburger. Is yours sort of like that? Do you Grill the turkey?

I read the article and I was thinking Thanksgiving Day on a Taco, which is just not appealing to me. :-)

But, if there's a better (read, healthier) way to do it, I'm all ears.

Turkey. That’s a thirteen-year-old concept. The idea in that era was to reduce fat consumption. Today, we realize that fat consumption is not the problem. The cardio problem for nutrition is cholesterol, sodium, and a subset of fat, saturated fat. Chicken doesn’t contain saturated fat, but if your mind is still back in the 90s, like Rachel, you want turkey so you can avoid any fat. But turkey still fills them with cholesterol and sodium. No wonder they can’t control their own cardio risk, or weight. No wonder the kids laugh at them behind their backs.

Sorry, comrade. Sack lunches are not allowed in Comrade Obama's Brave New Lunchroom! We take them away and give the kiddies chicken nuggets and a yam because it's healthier for them; then they chuck the yam, and eat the nuggets. What would you proles do without us looking out for your spawn?
