Complaints Mount Against Michelle Obama’s New Lunch Menu

Townhall.com
"In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama. 
The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.
Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.
"I know a lot of my friends who are just drinking a jug of milk for their lunch. And they are not getting a proper meal," middle school student Samantha Gortmaker told Keloland.com.
Despite the fact that the new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, it’s not pleasing students.
 Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market - for chocolate syrup."

  1. In the forty-five years I taught special education it was never the lunches that made the kids fat. It was the snack foods that they brought with them from home, large bags of potato chips of Chitos or or other high calorie foods along with 40 oz soda bottles they drank on their way to school. That is not to mention the more affluent who stopped at Starbucks on their way to school and got those super sweet coffee drinks while their mothers waited outside with their motors running.
    The school cooks in my school were wonderful. The food they served was nutritious and tasty until regulations made them cut back on fats and sugars and the results were unpalatable garbage that the kids dumped in the waste on their way out of the kitchen. That was pre-Michelle. I can't imagine what is going on now.

    1. Forgive me, but I think you are confusing the two ends of the Sasquatch. I know it is difficult to make the determination since the output from both is of similar nature.
