    More pizza, fewer vegetables: Trump administration further undercuts Obama school-lunch rules

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture has taken another whack at former first lady Michelle Obama’s signature achievement: Establishing stricter nutritional standards for school breakfasts and lunches. And on her birthday.

    On Friday, USDA Deputy Under Secretary Brandon Lipps proposed new rules for the Food and Nutrition Service that would allow schools to cut the amount of vegetables and fruits required at lunch and breakfasts while giving them license to sell more pizza, burgers and fries to students. The agency is responsible for administering nutritional programs that feed nearly 30 million students at 99,000 schools.

    Funny thing is, that was my issue when I ran for class president in the 8th grade.

    Jesus, that's giving Trump credit for the maturity of a 14 year old. I think that's going a bit overboard.
    Supporting Trump, but claiming you are against racism...is like eating a Banana Split every day, but claiming you are against ice cream.

    I wonder how much the pre-packaged food giants donated to Trump's election campaign?

    Kids eat pizza. Institutional vegetables? not so much.
    Obama: High unemployment and slow growth are the new normal
    Trump: No they're not

    So kids tell you what they're gonna do. They decide. And you expect to be taken seriously?

    You honestly expect people to agree with you, "he's right, the kids decide." Laughable.

    Yeah, he's always, unfailingly reminded me of a schoolyard bully.

    The article attacks that notion. I get that it would take time to get kids to eat more healthily, considering the power of the crap food lobby, but obesity is a real concern.

    Stop being ridiculous. You can put all the vegetables on a kids tray you want. They just throw them in the garbage. As a cafeteria volunteer at my kids school I see how much food gets wasted. It’s nauseating. And guess what goes in the trash? All the vegetables, whole wheat and white milk.

    "The kids got us! We gotta do what they say!"





    Are kids paying you to post that crap? "Here's ten bucks, tell them we can eat whatever we want."
