1 Million Students Stopped Eating Michelle Obama’s Nutritional School Lunch

First Lady Michelle Obama has been very public about her concern with childhood obesity.  She created the Let’s Move! Initiative, and has been pushing for healthier school lunches ever since.  Now that most schools around the country have switched to healthier lunch and breakfast options thanks to the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act for which Mrs. Obama lobbied, many children have stopped buying school lunch.

According to Daily Mail, about 1 million kids quit eating school-provided food since healthier nutrition options came into effect, and Republicans see this as a failure in Obama’s initiative, rather than a success.

‘As well-intended as the people in Washington believe themselves to be, the reality is that from a practical standpoint these regulations are just plain not working out in some individual school districts,’ said Rep. Robert Aderholt of Alabama.

Aderholt is one of the Republicans who are pushing for the House to pass a bill allowing districts to opt-out of Obama’s food restrictions for at least one year.  The House panel approved of the bill, and after the Fourth of July weekend, the full House will vote.

The School Nutrition Association once backed Obama’s efforts, but as schools are losing money from low sales, they are also turning against the healthier options.  “How can we call these standards a success when they are driving students away from the program?” said Diane Pratt-Heavner, spokesperson for the association.

The association requested to speak with the First Lady and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, whose department runs the school nutrition program and backs Obama’s efforts.  Instead, they were invited to sit down with Vilsack and the White House’s chef and executive director of Let’s Move!, Sam Kass.

“The last thing that we can afford to do right now is play politics with our kids’ health, especially when we’re finally starting to see some progress on this issue,” Mrs. Obama said while she met with a group of nutritionists at the White House.

“I’m going to fight until the bitter end to make sure that every kid in this country continues to have the best nutrition that they can have in our schools,” the First Lady declared while showcasing elementary school kids who prepared a salad for their lunch.

    American kids are walking around looking like “fat rats” we need to teach our kids to eat healthy but if their sorry parents don’t do their jobs at home by cooking healthy instead of taking them thru Mickey D’s drive thru and allowing them to constantly eat bags of chips and candy bars while sitting on their butts playing computer games then the only place they will learn about healthy eating is at school! You would be surprised to learn just how many kids cannot name their vegetables!

    The elementary school my grandson attends opted for the new lunch program. I learned my grandson wouldn’t eat the lunch served @ 10:30am & the day ended @3:05pm so he would go all day without eating. When I became aware of this I reviewed the menu to understand why. 1 example of a meal was chicken teriyaki. How many 5yr olds eat or even know about that dish? Anyway, I began preparing him a full breakfast & lunch daily (sandwich, chips, 2 fruits, yogurt & milk, apple juice or water)…now he eats daily!!!

      Are you using whole grain bread for the sandwich? Does the condiments have high fructose corn syrup? Are you using ham or turkey in the sandwich preparation.

      Given the massive use of preservatives, sodium and high fructose corn syrup and if you are serving strawberry yogurt, please consider that Dannon is using bugs to create certain dyes.

      Now, that alone and serving pork which is not good for blacks, chicken teriyaki seems to be the best alternative.

    Hopefully, if they are bringing their lunches to school, their parents are wise enough to give them something HEALTHY in their lunch bags. Otherwise, it would just be plain STUPID for the parents to give the kids crap to eat. That’s just shooting your child in the foot. SMH

    KL Rich that is too much food for a 5th grader you give him a sandwich chips 2 fruits a yogurt come on now that’s the first lady point. Nothing is wrong with what you gave your grandson it’s the amount. Also a 5 year old can be trained to like chicken teriyaki bit parents feed them junk and that’s what they’re trained to like

    When they get around 50 years old, and when their bodies has broken down with all kinds of diseases that will remember. You learn early.

    I have worked for more than thirty years in the school system and in our district we had wonderful meals. We always had two vegetables offered, and a fruit along with the meat/meat alternate and grain choice and milk. I know that there is always room for improvement in programs, but I believe we have gone too far too fast. It is not nutritious if children throw it away. I believe the answer lies in portion sizes and trying to get children to eat a variety of things. I do not mind offering whole grains, although I do not believe 100% of the grains need to be whole grain. A few (not many) of the wholegrain items that we have gotten to offer students are not very good. My biggest complaint is I believe forcing schools to such strict nutritional standards is blatant discrimination. The USDA forces such strict mandates on schools as to what can be served but this same agency that is responsible for supplemental nutritional needs for one in six Americans has no restrictions on what Americans purchase with food stamps. In fact, I was shocked to learn that individuals on SNAP (food stamps) can purchase food items at gas stations (convenience stores). What kind of healthy foods can you get at a convenience store?? If we are going to teach children to eat healthier, then let’s make everyone that uses our tax dollars accountable for teaching healthy habits.
