HARRISON CITY, Pa. – Lunch is a drastically different experience now that Penn-Trafford High School is no longer bound by federal food regulations.

District officials removed the high school from the National School Lunch Program after years of struggling to comply with federal regulations that drove down student lunch participation and cafeteria revenues, the Tribune-Review reports.

The freedom from the strict restrictions on calories, fat, sugar, salt and other elements, came at the expense of federal funding to help cover free- and reduced-priced lunches for some students, but district business manager Brett Lago said the decision is already paying off in year one.

“We’ve lost, to date, about $40,000 worth of reimbursement, but our sales are up about $50,000 over last year,” he said. “Participation has gone from about 25 percent to 45 percent, and we’re still providing free lunches to all those students who would have been eligible under the school lunch program.”

Ditching the federal regulations allowed school food workers to redesign the cafeteria from a funnel system with few choices to a food court model with a deli and panini station, grill, main course counter and other stations, according to the news site.

“You get to choose what you want instead of being sort of funneled in and only having one choice,” junior Chase Zavarella said. “I think everyone is happier with the new selection.”

Senior Brianna Lander pointed to the cafeteria’s garbage cans as evidence that the new system is working better than the federal rules, which require all students to take a fruit or vegetable whether they wanted it or not.

“The trash cans were always full, sometimes overflowing,” Lander said. “You don’t see that now. People would go up to the snack line and get random junk food, where now you can get an actual meal and eat it.”

Lago said the new system gives high school students more control over what they eat, whereas the federal program mandated the same sized portions for a wide range of student body types and dietary needs.

“(The high school) involved the least risk” for opting out of the NSLP, he said. “Plus, kids at that age, they’re a little more informed and better at making smart choices for themselves because we still have a lot of healthy options. But as far as meal guidelines, you can’t say a 300-pound football player and a 90-pound cheerleader have the same (dietary) needs on a daily basis.”

Regardless, the change has already pulled the school’s food service budget from the red, he said.

“Right now, we’re looking at breaking even at the high-school level and hopefully the rest of the district as well,” Lago told the Tribune-Review.

Penn-Trafford High School is among more than 500 schools that have dropped out of the NSLP since strict nutrition regulations were imposed on schools through the Healthy Hunger Free Act championed by former first lady Michelle Obama.

The changes drove down school food sales nationwide for the first time in years and created an estimated $1 billion in additional food waste as students across the country revolted against the rules.

The House Freedom Caucus has called on the Trump administration to consider efforts to repeal the lunch rules during the first 100 days, while the School Nutrition Association will request “reasonable” flexibility for menu planning, according to the Quad City Times.

SNA spokesperson Diane Pratt-Heavner told the new site the group, which represents 55,0000 school food service workers, is developing a position paper for 2017 that’s expected to call for a relaxed requirements on whole grains and salt, and new rules for a la carte items and fruits and vegetables.

      Not being elected to anything, I’ve never figured out how the First Lady was able to force this on the schools.

        Exactly! I’ve never understood that, either. But good riddance to the sasquatch!

          • Richard says:

            Vigilabo’s response looks pretty clear to me. Congress abrogated its responsibility to the Executive branch, and the Executive branch used that power to do what the President’s wife wanted. no surprises there.

            Trying for healthier lunch should be applauded – not sure why this is such a partisan issue

          • Snarkasterous1 says:

            Centralized, bureaucratic, unworkable, wasteful program – yep, libbies “just can’t understand” what’s wrong here……

          • BA says:

            “trying” is replaced by “forcing”, that’s the problem

          • Ted Baker says:

            I agree, but cafeteria food shouldn’t have been a partisan issue – Republican and Dems should’ve work this one out – that’s all I’m saying and the hate for Michelle on this issue alone is unjustifiable

          • James Smith says:

            These lunches that hungry kids refused to eat are in a program she directed and personally pushed. Sorry you hate hungry kids.

          • roner says:

            It’s not hate – it’s disapproval. dims are the haters. moochelle made herself the “czar” of “healthy” food in schools (which her kids didn’t have to endure, of course), and it was her “cause.” She obviously didn’t follow the “guidelines,” either.

          • airplane mike says:

            I don’t remember her asking for any Republican opinions. Do you? She seemed to have trouble even saying the word Republican.

          • Deplorable HoundOfDoom says:

            You can trace that back to president ‘I won’ and his refusal to work with republicans on just about everything.

            It shouldn’t be an issue for the federal government.

          • Rickintheforest says:

            Congress should not even be discussing cafeteria food. PLEASE read the Constitution and try to understand the true meaning of a federal system. It was never the intent to have an all powerful national government. Never.

            Oh, but there are so many reasons to despise Michael. Just a sasquatch in the nation’s rearview mirror! Happy days.

          • Dean Anniballi says:

            That’s the thing between liberal and conservative views. Libs try (and generally fail) because it’s all about feelings. Conservatives succeed, because we leave emotion out of the equation, and base decisions on fact and reasoned expected outcomes.

          • Ted Baker says:

            You mean Medicaid and Social Security is a failure ?

          • cr0ak says:

            As they stand today, yes. Especially SS. It was never meant to a pay kid (until the age of 18) whose parent had died. And who on earth decided that a woman who’s never worked a day in her life is entitled to half of her husband’s SS? IMO, if a woman didn’t need to work to supplement the family’s income, why is she now getting benefits? (And, btw, even those who did work – but are receiving half of the husband’s benefits.)

            In fact, originally it was supposed to be the person’s choice as to whether or not (s)he wanted to opt in. And… thanks to LBJ, the SS funds are no longer kept separate – but included in the General Fund. (No wonder it’s broke!)

            I also understand that illegals/non-citizens are collecting SS. WHY?!

          • airplane mike says:

            So what should we do? Throw widows and children out into the street? If this is what it means to be a conservative…..count me out!!!!

          • roner says:

            No. But, that’s what libs think should be done to conservatives.

          • cr0ak says:

            Oh, here we go… I just love how you (and people like you) read stuff into what someone has typed that isn’t even there!

            Re-read what I wrote. If you still don’t understand what I said, then get back to me.

          • weedpuller says:

            Ever think of taking in the “widows and orphans”?

          • jmg09 says:

            …and that’s the typical, binary thinking that is such a problem in society. “You’re not for social security, so you must be for throwing widows and children in the streets.” Ridiculous.

          • We'llcallitBlackDog says:

            Love to. Like the other 70+ programs available nationwide for low-income families and children isn’t enough.

          • LuppersMom says:

            No one ever said that. Jeez, cut back on the Starbucks. A sensible answer would be to offer transitional assistance while the widow finds gainful employment. No one throws children out into the street, Oliver Twist. Binary doofus thinking.

          • LuppersMom says:

            Good question. Teachers in most Texas districts cannot collect even if they paid in while working other jobs. Yet illegals can collect who have never paid and don’t belong here. WTF??

          • lanahi says:

            The worker paid into it. His widow should benefit from his part of it.

            You realize, of course, that times since this was set up have changed. Most women at the time did NOT work outside the home. They were housewives. If something happened to her husband, her and her children suffered because of lack of other resources. She deserved help from the funds her husband paid into SS.

          • cr0ak says:

            I wasn’t talking about widows. A widow does receive the husband’s SS. In full. I’m talking about women whose husbands are still alive (and collecting SSI). When the woman (even though she’s never worked) reaches the age of 65 (or whatever the current age limit is), she’ll receive half of what her husband gets.

            The same goes for women who have worked. Husband gets his full amount, wife gets half of his amount, instead of what she’d get if she hadn’t married at all.

          • roner says:

            Yes – largely. Especially SSI.

          • Ted Baker says:

            Conservatives never seem to be able to get rid of it – even with a Repub Pres and congress – — Repeal and Rename

          • Bert Darrell says:

            The schemes fail even faster is politicians divert the trust funds to their petty projects, special favors to donors, and reelection campaigns, and NEVER repay the trust.

          • jmg09 says:

            You mean something that’s going bankrupt is not a failure? You mean taking my money and giving me 1/10 of what I could’ve made investing on my own is a success?

          • Dean Anniballi says:

            There’s emotions I spoke about. Since you raised it, any idea what the cost of living allowance was for social security this year? It was a 0.3% increase, and last year it was zero. From 1975 through 2008, the average COLA was 4.4% per year. Since then, the average is 1.1%. Not looking too good for retirees, is it? As the federal government now owes the SS fund $2.7 TRILLION plus interest, it’s even worse. Add a $20 TRILLION US debt to that equation, and it isn’t hard to see that SS will be bankrupted in the future, along with Medicaid, Medicaid, and every other federally run program. So ye, these programs are doomed for failure.

          • Ted Baker says:

            The US owes 2.7 trillion to SS fund ? – you mean the amount we spent on the Iraq War . SS fund was squandered by both parties – it is solvent till 2033 or something like that – save the socialism argument for Fox news – if both parties had a half a brain they can easily solve the issue ; but ratings, political contributions for salaries for people to do nothing

          • Dean Anniballi says:

            Have you not seen the reporting on these lunches? Kids weren’t eating them, because they sucked. Why is the federal government getting into this? The federal government doesn’t run much that works well. We need to get back to what our founders designed. The states should be dealing with most of the programs the fed has usurped. Closer to the people means accountability, and generally, more successful programs.

          • Ted Baker says:

            the founders designed public schools so not sure what you mean – Republican President with a Repub congress have always executed the program, so when in powers why don’t they send it back to the stars

          • Hosana Rosanadana says:

            I don’t recall the public school system being designed by the founding fathers or being a part of the Constitution. You must be thinking about when Jimmy Carter took over the nation’s schools with the creation of the department of education.

          • Ted Baker says:

            They were started in the late
            1600s in Boston, the framework has been around since the founders .

            Yes.

          • p3orion says:

            The founders did NOT “design public schools.” The Constitution is very clear about the FEW powers the federal government has, and says specifically (in the Tenth Amendment) that ALL the rest stay with the people or the states. And that’s how public education was run, until Jimmy Carter focked it up in 1979 by forming the Department of Education.

            Since then we’ve spent over $1.5 Trillion. Do you know ANYONE who thinks educational outcomes in the United States have improved over the past four decades?

          • jmg09 says:

            But try suggesting we get rid of that bloated, useless department and listen to the cries of “You hate the children!”

            Right now, the states send money to DC, it runs through a bureaucracy, filtered out, then what’s left goes back to the states. Why? So everyone can have the same lower standards? Get back to having 50 different experiments in education, let the states keep their money, and let innovation come back to education.

          • LuppersMom says:

            As a teacher for the past three decades, I say the answer is….NOT IMPROVED.

          • Sean in NYC says:

            Public schools were only developed, first in Massachsetts, in the late 19th century to recondition formerly independent/ self-sufficient minded Americans to be worker bees in an industrial society:

            It is frightening that almost no one today realizes who created the idea of public schooling, why they created it, and how it was later co-opted by those bent on breaking down American families and traditional structures.

          • Rickintheforest says:

            Sorry. The founding fathers did not design public schools. That was always left to local communities and states. And should never have been usurped by the federal government that can never manage these sorts of things well from thousands of miles away.

          • airrcopp says:

            Absolutely true! However we abdicated our responsibilities to manage those precious institutions to the social marxist that were hiding in the shadows. We went off to earn a living for our families and the vermin slipped in the back door to teach falsehoods and lies as truth. We sowed good seed, they made sure it fell on dry soil. Today we reap the whirlwind of our in attention of the past 50 years.
            How do we fix it? One teacher, one student at a time. Gradatim Ferociter!

          • FedUpAmericanMom says:

            Oh my gosh the truths that you just spoke. I have chill bumps.

          • Michael K says:

            All schools were put in place by the Church originally until the Government took over and replaced the Church with the atheist Humanist Manifesto and Secular Humanism. Humanist declare that the School is their church, the teachers are their Pastors and the students are their congregation that they will teach an atheistic worldview.

            In order to do that they needed to promote the erroneous separation of church argument that is not in the Constitution in order to squelch religious beliefs.

            When it first came into existence, Humanist applied for and received Tax exempt status as a religion (atheism). But as they took control of schools they backed off of that so they could use the above argument to keep religion out of schools.

            From the American Humanist Society website.

            “Advocating progressive values and equality for humanists, atheists, and freethinkers”
            This could be the motto of all public schools.

          • airrcopp says:

            Good start! Look at the Scottish Reformation of the 18-19 century, there is where our public schools came in to being; They were run by the Scottish churches and promoted high education for all. This same period in British history, and it’s corresponding intellectual thoughts directly help in the formation of our country. Humanistic philosophy invaded what was meant for good and now creates this cesspool we have. Illiterate, unable to critically think generations of minions to be manipulated by nefarious powers.

          • wobbles9094 says:

            the idea was always to get away from a good education and replace it with a good indoctrination. Our public school system is a means of controlling what people think, and believe from the earliest age. And it is beyond corrupted now. We have liberal fascist extremists indoctrinating our kids now at almost every level of the educational system…

          • Dean Anniballi says:

            Why, no how, can they send it to the stars? The founders intended a well educated public, but never intended the federal government have the control they do now. They wanted public funds to be used to support education but if you understand the founders intentions, they wanted most decisions left to the states, not the federal government. I guess I don’t see where you have a point here.

And let’s not forget that he is fighting both sides of the aisle, as they are extremely disturbed there is an outsider in charge who just might expose them for what they are, frauds for the most part.

So, yes I am opposed to dietary advice from a fat lady with a gun.

            Because students were told what to eat. If you really want kids to eat healthily, educate them about nutrition and the way the human body works. Health classes with actual scientific content would educate and improve some teenagers’ tendencies to eat junk food. On the other hand, boring pseudo education about multiculturalism and revisionist history coupled with autocratic rule of the lunch menu was bound to backfire.

            Local control + Actual facts being transmitted to students = better schools

          • coffeedrinker88 says:

            Healthier lunch is not a partisan issue. But this school lunch program is/was a snapshot of the basic difference between liberals and conservatives. Liberals believe that people should be told what is best for them and if they do not abide by that then they should be forced to do what is best for them. Conservatives believe the individual is the best person to decide what is best for them and if they choose not to do that, then any consequences they suffer are their own fault.

            Liberals believe the govt. should protect people from everything that can do them harm. Conservatives believe govt. should protect me from other people(police force, right to bear arms)/countries(military) that want to do me harm but that it’s not their job to protect me from myself.

          • Sam Green says:

            I suggest you look into the problem, Under Ms. Obamas system, a 250lb senior football player got the same caloric intake as a slender 80lb 9th grader.

            It is not Ms Obama’s job to delegate how much food a person can be served. If ANYONE leaves lunch hungry, her school lunch BS has failed. Trashing a billion dollars worth of food kids wont eat is moronic as it is stupid.

            Theres a difference between eating soundly and fighting diabetes and obesity, BUT IT IS NOT A ONE SIZE FIT ALL.

            The Obama’s children dined by executive chefs at their private schools, if they wanted seconds, they got it. Millions of public school children cannot say the same.

            Someday stuck on stupid will be curable.

          • HJD says:

            Because it should be up to the parents to make sure their kids eat healthily, not some government program. Do you want the government telling YOU what you can eat? No, I didn’t think so.

          • Halfbreed says:

            Because the kids were not eating the food and it was going to the landfill.

            It’s just that simple.

          • guest says:

            Lago said the new system gives high school students more control over what they eat,

            Do you suppose a govt that can tell you what to eat, where to live, where to work etc is too big?

            The climate change politicians in CA have passed laws that direct un-elected appointees to set up regulations to enforce climate change laws.

            The CA Air Resources Board (CARB) has been given sweeping new powers. Mary Nichols of the CARB, an activist, will now be able to tax and fine you out of your home and your car. The cattle and dairy industry is under attack right now due to methane emissions from cattle and dairy. IN the past year they have enacted regulations that will add $10,000 in construction costs onto the mythical average home, while at the same time raising taxes to make that home even more unafforable to the mythical average resident.

            They can regulate what you eat, regulate where you work, and where you live.

            The greater good becomes the lowering of expectations and outcomes.

            The problem is,ever since the New Deal (which was FAR more than about just setting up a Welfare State), agencies such as the EPA, ATF, NEA, and even the NSLP operate extra-Constitutionally, and although originally created through the power of Congress, effectively give the Executive the force of legislation through “regulation” without Congressional approval.

            The power of the Executive through such regulatory agencies among others, as well as the courts, both who have far exceeded their Constitutional authorities need to be reigned in.

            People like you have forgotten (or you have always just been dependent, ignorant and brainwashed) that America was SUPPOSED to be a system where the Government was the responsibility of the People, and answerable to them, not the other way around as we have today. A population perpetually attached to the Government teat, and that government interfering and controlling our lives to the point that it’s forcing people to buy medical insurance, or telling us what our children can and cannot eat in school, and the People accepting it is an abomination regardless of how it comes about.

            It got to the point (I think it was around year #2 of his Residency) that I could no longer even stomach looking at him, let alone listen to him. I physically felt ill every time I’d see his pic. (I still do, btw.) And it has nothing to do with his skin color. He could be purple with pink polka dots, for all I care. There just seems to be such evil, menace, and hatred emanating from him. Like he has a demon attached to him or something.

            His ideas of our “American Values” came from his communist grandparents and his Marxist Kenyan father. I don’t know if his mother was around that much to influence him. Oh…. and let’s not forget what’s-his-name… ummm… Frank Marshall Davis. I’m sure he had the biggest part in forming little Barry’s ideas of what American Values should be!

          • Erik Denning says:

            Donald Trump’s inheritance was somewhere between 40 and 200 million dollars in 1974. There are also the massive loan guarantees he received from his father. Loan guarantees, while not inheritance, are extremely valuable and can catapult someone’s net worth upwards.

            Sure, Trump worked hard to turn that into more money, but don’t portray him as a self-made man who struggled to pull himself up from his bootstraps. It’s a lot easier to make a million dollars when you already have a million dollars, than when you have nothing.

Why would you give them bad food as an option, rather than sticking to what you know is right?

            Our “Betters”, meaning Progressive Elites such as the Obamas, George Soros, Globalists, and and all their ilk, know what’s “best” for us, and all they care about is our well-being so that is why we must let them rule over every aspect of our lives, take control of our families, confiscate our earnings for redistribution, limit out carbon footprints, and put our faith in them to provide all of our wants and needs, not God or ourselves.

            You see, it’s for our own good, and the good of Humanity, and most of all, for the children (and puppies, kittens and bunnies too).

            The bag lunches that the parents prepared for their children was being taken away by the lunch Nazis and Moochelle approved it.

        Marlene, may I recommend some reading material called “The People’s Pottage”, a collection of 3 early 20th-Century essays compiled by John Garrett which I think will explain what happened to America and how this sort of stuff is still allowed to happen. It is in the Public Domain and you can download a PDF copy from multiple sources on the internet.

        Just make sure that if you are on any blood pressure meds that you double or triple dose yourself (if you can do so safely of course!) before reading this book because this will make you so furious that your head will want to explode.

        It’s a good question, but I’m willing to bet that if everyone had to take milk then the person next to them… already had milk. I don’t know about you, but milk has never been something I’ve drank multiple glasses of.

        • Morrigan says:

          Those are half-pint containers, if they’re like the ones I bought in HS. Barely enough to wash down the lunch. I have drunk multiple glasses of milk many times, and had milk on cereal plus a glass of milk, but that might be regional. Anyway, the same kid can drink 12 oz of soda.

        • Morrigan says:

    Participation and revenue down. These are the hallmarks of government attempts to run a private or commercial enterprise, or insert itself into local policies.

No one forces them to grab “free” breakfast, lunch, and dinner just because it’s there. I want the govt out of it like you do, so that means the parents step up. We can’t have it both ways. Schools aren’t restaurants, food banks, or homeless shelters.

        Absolutely, and the war on drugs is still terrible and will probably get worse again. I’m pro-Trump, but this is a concern. We tried prohibition, it didn’t work.

        I ask, why, when opiates are available over the counter in Mexico…why is it the U.S. with the Opiate problem and not Mexico?

        Answer: Prohibition. We had people even hording light bulbs when the government started forcing restrictions. People will always try to get what they cant…its human nature. communist nations try to restrict people a lot…and guess what they have? HUGE black markets.

    The school lunch thing was just a step in the direction of making us all eat they way they want.

    ObamaCare was the next step. Eventually State controlled health care will start rationing certain care based on “your shared responsabity participation”. Meaning if you are fat, a smoker, a drinker, wont take corporate pharmaceuticals to get artificial lipid numbers down, dont exorcise, etc., they will not allow you the same treatment as an otherwise “compliant” patient.

    I still think the school food service people could have cooked better food with what they had to work with within the limits. The pictures we saw all over social media were outrageous, there was no need to make food that terrible just because there are salt and sugar and fat restrictions. The problem is, “lunch ladies” dont always “cook” like they used to. Cafeterias are served by companies like Cisco who delivers prepared foods. Schools often dont have “cooks”…they have “warmers”, so when you try to make them actually “cook” they are clueless…in some cases…I’m sure some school systems are better than others but a lot of counties and cities see feeding kids just like feeding prisoners…as an “institutional” approach.

    I’m not for the federal government mandating anything for this. The Feds should not be involved in the food or the direct education of the children. It should be local and the localities should pay their own way and stop suckling off the federal tit. Stop taking the money and you can do what you want.

    • rayg says:

      One thing you forgot: it was designed by academics with no understanding of how real life works. The assumption of academics seems to always be, if we eliminate options and choices in society, then the people will automatically accept what the government imposes because that will be their only option. Academics apparently never heard of or do not understand black markets, illegal trading, etc. If the government seeks to impose something that the people do not like or agree with, they often find ways around it with the result of not only the government suffering (in this case, declining school food revenue) but certain sectors of society also suffer (usually the poor and disadvantaged). That is what happened with this food program in many districts: students just stopped participating unless they absolutely had to.

    2. “…kids at that age, they’re a little more informed and better at making smart choices for themselves because we still have a lot of healthy options.” They didn’t eat the healthy foods when they had no other choices, but if we give them the choice to eat fat, sugar, and salt instead, they’re sure to make wise choices. If kids won’t buy into eating healthy food, the solution isn’t offering unhealthy food as an option.

    We don’t let children choose their meals at home because they don’t usually make healthy choices, so what makes you think they will at school? Are you really ok wth your tax dollars contributing to more obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes? What if we took that attitude with class reading materials? “Let them choose their books. They know what books are best for studying literature.” If parents taught their children better eating habits, and insisted on them, schools wouldn’t have to parent for them and your taxes wouldn’t have to pay for the consequences.

      1. It wasn’t just the portion size that was the problem. It was the proportions.

      The program was based on a 2000 calorie diet with proportions based on a “generic” adult.

      Growing teens have different nutritional needs than adults. The proportions of the meals need to reflect that and this program didn’t.

      It gets worse when you start talking about athletes, especially those engaging in weight lifting. That increases the amount of protein your body needs That means many athletes were being forced to buy multiple meals in order to get the amount of protein they needed. That means they were purchasing 4-5 servings of vegetables just to get enough protein. Those vegetables just wind up in the trash, even if the student eats vegetables. That’s just too many veggies to eat at one time.

      Forcing people to buy something really is not sound public policy. (And liberals keep doing it.)

      2. Learning how to make informed choices is part of growing up.

      Having the Government make for people just results in people never acting like adults.

      It’s also not the Government’s job to make choices for people..

      That is called tyranny.

      The Government is also on record as making lousy choices. You think someone in Government is going to make better choices simply because they are in Government?

      You may have faith that the Government always has good intentions and makes the proper choice. I don’t.

They treated every student like they weighed 600 pounds and put them on a crash diet.

Maybe 1%. Our cafeterias doled out such treats as Beefaroni, jello with whipped cream, chocolate milk, but we found ways to burn it off.

    Michele Obama was one of the worst First Ladies in U.S. history. Think about it. She accomplished nothing as First Lady. She wasted our money on lavish travel, she was(is) a racist, she’s rude, she’s a liar, and she disrespected our military. So glad she is gone.

  130. #getusedtoit says:

    Good now those kids can eat now!

  131. emag says:

    You cannot and should not raise kids without any fat. They need that to grow, like protein and everything else. I am glad they got smart at that school,
    I hope they all will. Why was that kind of a program even a federal guideline. Michelle 0bama does not have a degree in childhood nutrition. So it never should have been implemented.

  132. SFC King says:

    Rumor has it that Michelle is trying to get a food show or appear on a food show. Wow! after starving the children for 8 years? What nerve and what a hypocrite.

  138. SJvet says:

    When I went to school, I often took a scrambled egg or egg salad sandwich in a paper bag. If I had a dime, I’d buy an ice cream sandwich for dessert. When I had to buy my lunch in the cafeteria, I often opted for a dirty-water hotdog. Yum!

    Hey kids, ever wonder where all those lunches you used to love went? Check out Michelle O’s booty.

  145. Charles X says:

    Michelle Obama’s so-called “National School Lunch Program” was a form of food fascism. It was another way for more government intrusion into the lives of schoolchildren. Michelle Obama was a complete lowlife fascist demagogue when she was First Lady. She disgraced the Office of the First Lady. Constantly invoking 1800s slavery and the 1960s Civil Rights Movement in her speeches, as if it was still 1963 of 1805. Completely disgraceful. Michelle Obama needs to go back to the lavish crap-hole that she crawled out of.

  146. LCDR says:

    Yet another example of an “expert” deciding what’s good for you. That lunch program of Michelle’s was a total disaster, simply because it was run from Washington by bureaucrats who never saw a school lunch line. Schools and more importantly, students are much better off without Michelle’s heavy handed approach to school lunches.

    In the fifties Los Angeles schools had great cinnamon rolls. The hamburgers, although they didn’t taste to bad, you had no idea what you were really eating. I ate a lot of cinnamon rolls. They had a spaghetti dish that was like the hamburgers. Unrecognizable as to what you were really eating.

  153. LadyMulti says:

    I always found the school lunch thing depressing. Some children by the free lunch program get the one really good filling meal they get a day. Food is your energy; fuel for your body so you can learn. You can’t learn on an empty stomach if all you’re thinking about is how hungry you are. I was happy to hear that the schools I used to go to went fully to free meals. Everyone who goes gets free Lunch and they offer cheap breakfast. They also continue on through the summer as well and offer cheap and affordable lunch

  154. catherwood says:

    All the obama’s did should be trashed

  155. Bob USAF(ret) says:

    Michelle Obama has no background as either a dietitian or a nutritionist, so all these menus were out of her obama, no wonder kids didn’t like the crap.

  159. Dennis_Webb says:

    The Obamas and their two girls could get anything they wanted to eat any time of the day at the White House, yet they insisted on starving America’s students. I can guarantee that if anyone had measured obesity at a randomly-chosen set of schools both before the Obama lunch mandate and a year later, they would have found no difference in obesity. Did anyone make such a measurement to justify this ill-conceived fiasco? Of course not!

    • Morrigan says:

      America’s students’ parents couldn’t pack lunches? I hated the way she was given authority that was not his to give nor hers to exercise, but even if the stories about confiscated sack lunches are true, no one ever said the kids HAD to eat breakfast and dinner at school instead of at home.

  160. Rickintheforest says:

    The federal government has no business being in the school lunch business. They can’t manage this sort of thing and have no Constitutional authority for meddling in any event. True story. A whore house in Nevada owed back taxes so to collect the taxes the feds took over the house of ill repute. They could not run it successfully and put it into bankruptcy. The government can’t even sell liquor and sex and make a profit.

  161. jjeffs63 says:

    Let’s see. The fed can withhold funding if school lunches aren’t Ex-FLOTUS approved, or there are not enough female athletes, but NOT if a city breaks federal law by not cooperating with ICE. Got it!

  162. SWDC says:

    When one can control your food, you are nothing more than a dog.

  163. goodonyaa says:

    My daughter once told me that the boys on her HS cross-country team needed to eat 5 ridiculously small Michelle lunches just to get enough calories to make it through practice after school. Apparently the serving sizes were uniform, regardless if it was for a 100-lb female cheerleader or a 200-lb male football player. Stupidity at its finest.

    • ResilientSrDem65 says:

      Sure there are problems, but school lunches did not make children ‘fat’. It was what they got at home or after school that did the damage.

      • Siddyppowpow says:

        I thought that they were in school to learn? Maybe better eating habits is one you fattys should of learned.

        • ResilientSrDem65 says:

          It’s not my habit to respond to comments like this, but I’m really tired of being insulted by others who hide under the anon screen names.
          Who are you to call me a “fatty”? I didn’t insult you, so what’s your point – that you can?
          You owe me an apology, something “you should have learned” when you were a child.

          • Siddyppowpow says:

            It must of been weird growing up with your real name as “ResilientSrDem65” the other kids must of really picked on you.

  168. bfa says:

    Everything OSAMA and is wife touch was a disaster !!!

  169. ResilientSrDem65 says:

    Another part of the lunch program that was doomed to fail – refusing to address ethnic or traditional preferences. Children in the southwest don’t like the same things as the children in North Dakota, different ethnic foods aren’t given to refugees who have never seen a piece of kale or know what to do with a piece of lunchmeat.
    The local schools know their children, what they like, what’s good for them and the whole point is to make sure children are NOT hungry.

    “you can’t say a 300-pound football player and a 90-pound cheerleader have the same (dietary) needs on a daily basis”

    This is why the federal control model doesn’t work very well for most things. You get a 1 size fits all with no exceptions outcome. Part of why state or local control over many issues is obviously a better fit.

  172. John Warren says:

    It was just get even-isum by the Obama’s. I’m sure they looked at it as white privilege, so they forced the change. Glad Ahab and Jezebel are gone.

    Does anyone really believe that the federal government was ever intended to have any impact whatsoever on what anyone ate at lunch, or any other meal for that matter?

  184. Katy Bullard says:

    Yeah, maybe it wasn’t the best idea to let a 300 lb. mountain gorilla do his social experimentation on high school kids’ food. What a shock that the program has been a failure.

  185. EnoughIsEnough says:

    I worked in the high school when Michelle Obama’s mandate went into effect. People would have been appalled to see the waste after students were forced to take food choices they didn’t want. At breakfast one morning, hard boiled eggs were served, but the salt had been removed from the condiment stand. There was a very loud and vocal revolt, so I snuck into the staff lounge and grabbed the salt shaker, doling out the spice as if it were on the black market. The old adage, you can lead a horse to water, but cannot make it drink is very true.

    This is disturbing. What if other people get the crazy notion they can choose what they want?

  191. LoFlyer says:

    Mrs Obama’s intervention into the school lunch program was another of the unpopular initiatives of the administration. The funny thing was watching Michelle O’s ass grow wider with each passing year. Obviously she wasn’t listening to her own preaching. Typical Progressive.

  192. Mike Hansen says:

    Quite the uppity picture we have accompanying the story.. Not sure why she was so niggardly with student lunches seeing how she ate for two, sometimes three people at a time.

There is no disease or dietary deficency that resolts from eating zero carbohydrates and yet we were told that that should be the base of the food pyramid. We have been told to fear fat in our food and that it causes heart disease–WRONG– the problem is high INSULIN caused by eatin too much sugar and carbohydrates too often. Serve them good tasting fats, eggs and meat plus green vegetables with butter. A bacon and egg breakfast doesn’t raise blood sugar and insulin.
