Michelle Obama’s anti-choice campaign to make children eat what she wants them to eat is falling apart at the seams. Kids, parents, and school systems across the country have had enough of her government school lunches and are, literally, throwing them away.
The National School Board Association reports that since the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” was passed in 2010, 83.7% of school districts saw an increase in plate waste and 76.5% saw a decrease in participation by students. School districts are dropping out of the school lunch program (321 districts in 43 states in 2013) at an increasing rate, some opting to start their own lunch programs.
In typical government fashion, a one-size-fits-all calorie limit has been established leaving many kids hungry and many lunches unappetizing. Michelle Obama’s kids dine on chicken wings, Cuban sandwiches, cheese steaks, and meatball sandwiches at the elite, private school they attend, but her school lunch program for the masses doesn’t allow anything like that.
Under the federal guidelines, some lunches seem like a joke. In Chickasha, Oklahoma, angry parents complained about a so-called “Munchable” meal consisting of a couple of slices of lunch meat, a couple crackers, and two pieces of cauliflower. Many lunches are skimpy, unappealing and, for many, simply revolting.
Some students are boycotting the lunch program, a move that can cause a financial loss to the school and force a change. Many students are just throwing the lunch away. Sadly, under-privileged children who may not get another meal all day go hungry and receive far too few needed calories.
There has been little negative press for Michelle because, like her husband, she received unconditional media support. She also has the same elite, liberal mindset as her husband, believing she knows best what is good for all. She will now join her husband under the bus as it all comes crumbling down – as predicted.
