Everyone hates Michelle Obama’s school lunches because Republicans

posted at 10:11 pm on May 27, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

There’s a hashtag filled with colorful commentary and color pictures of the devastation Michelle Obama’s healthy school lunch initiative has wrought on the plastic platters of America’s school children.

There’s a GAO report showing participation in the school lunch program down more than 1 million students— the first such decline in years— while costs are up and the actual nutritional value of these allegedly improved meals remains in question. But none of this requires reevaluation.

The real problem with Michelle Obama’s crusade and a top-down, inflexible federal mandate for students of varying sizes and tastes is that Republicans are pointing out that it’s not as great as the First Lady claims:

If Michelle Obama had it her way, House Republicans would currently be in detention.

In one of the most overtly political speeches during her tenure as First Lady, Obama slammed Republicans on Tuesday for trying to weaken school nutritional standards, one of her key policy achievements.

“This is unacceptable,” Obama said at a White House meeting with school leaders and experts. “It’s unacceptable to me not just as First Lady but also as a mother.

“The stakes couldn’t be higher on this issue,” she said, pointing to obesity statistics in both children and adults. “The last thing we can afford to so right now is play politics with our kids health.”

I, unlike many others, don’t have a huge problem with the First Lady pushing for healthier eating. It’s a fine message, we do have a childhood obesity problem, and I’d rather meddlesome liberals be in the business of encouraging such things socially than mandating them. But this school lunch overhaul seems to be a perfect example of how a basically unobjectionable encouragement to eat healthier can become a disaster when the government attempts to implement it in a one-size-fits-all program.

By what measure is this program a “policy achievement?” Did the First Lady envision fewer students on the school lunch she wanted retooled to micromanage their health? Surely not. Did she want large numbers of students boycotting school lunch? Although it’s a decent lesson in activism, that probably wasn’t the goal. Did she want districts taking money from teaching budgets to pay higher prices for lunches that were being thrown away? I’m guessing no. Are bland, carb-filled substitutes for fatty offerings making anyone healthier? But admitting that tweaks in the program could allow districts more flexibility and possibly more success, even success as Michelle Obama defines it, would mean a minor political concession to Republicans. Better to pretend your “policy achievement” is going swimmingly and attack anyone who might want to change anything about the program the GAO found “challenging” and in need of “clarification.”

The Heritage Foundation explains the move Republicans are trying to make, which regrettably doesn’t change the underlying nutrition requirements (even the forthcoming anti-science War on Salt):

There’s a provision in the House agriculture appropriations bill that would grant waivers to school food authorities who are suffering financial losses due to operating food service programs. The waivers would give those SFAs an exemption from complying with the requirements for the 2014-15 school year. This might help some schools temporarily, including those who have reportedly taken money out of their teaching budgets to cover the additional program costs.

The Obamas’ personal chef has something to say about it, too:

Sam Kass, who is the administration’s Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy, framed this minor reprieve for some schools as an absolute catastrophe. According to Obama Foodorama, a blog covering White House food policy, “’What the House Republicans have proposed will be absolutely devastating,’ Kass said, and painted a grim picture of the junk food free-for-all that could go on, saying schools will be filled with ‘chips and candy bars, and all kinds of unhealthy foods.’”

You’ll eat your flaccid, watery broccoli and cold chicken cutlets and you’ll like it, hoi polloi!

Update: Perhaps they’re stealing from the civics budget for these lunches.

It’s a fine message, we do have a childhood obesity problem, and I’d rather meddlesome liberals be in the business of encouraging such things socially than mandating them.

We do? If the BMI is what they use as an indicator for kids’ obesity (while everybody knows is not a good idea to use the BMI system on children who are experiencing growth because it is largely useless and irrelevant) then I am deeply skeptical of their results. Ever since I saw that skinny Brooklyn kido called overweight (because…BMI) I am wondering if this is how they compile the stats for child obesity in America, based on the BMI…if the American kids are as ‘obese’ as that little girl, then I don’t see much to worry about it.

If by that you mean she’s some Ivy League edumacated know-it-all, with too much time on her hands, who thinks she knows better than parents and nutritionists across this great nation who actually DEAL with children and their nutrition requirements, then yes, I agree.

Snack: Pretzels & Cheese

Pea and Pea Shoots with Spring Onions
French Dip Subs
Ragout of White Beans
Tomato & Sweet Onion
Sautéed Greens
Jasmine Rice
Blueberry Greek Yogurt

Today’s lunch menu at Sidwell Friends needs to be inserted into ANY post about Mooch’s “starve our kids” lunch program.

Today they are trying to control what the schoolkids eat. Tomorrow it will be us all. But don’t expect that fat heifer to ever sacrifice.

Mooch is proof your mother was right!

ConstantineXI on May 27, 2014 at 12:38 PM

Mooch never got over being fat, ugly and unwanted (a rhinoplasty will only go so far). So she vents her frustrations on everyone around her so that they can share her pain and misery.

Typical lefturd.

And it was obvious from day one what she was like, however “beautiful” (gack) the leftist propaganda machine (MSM) claimed her to be. Anyone with eyes in his head could see it a mile away.

I’ve got a question.

Apart from the obesity question, when it comes to kids of normal weight, what facts and figures do we have to say such “healthy” lunches are better for kids than the old, normal lunches? What things are measured, and how do they compare?

Because if there is no difference in outcomes for otherwise healthy kids, and I suspect there IS no difference, then … doesn’t it all just make you shake your head back and forth? All this expense and top down directives and forcing kids to eat crap they don’t want to eat … for what? Catering to the lowest common denominator of the obese kids?

I really have to wonder if this is all due to someone calling Michelle Obama “fatty” when she was in middle school. It’s like Citizen Kane and “Rosebud” all over again. Because it sure doesn’t make health, or economic, sense.

ONLY in America!

Wholesale changes from one menu to another, especially when the new menu may not be what the students are used to, can easily lead to resistance especially when there is a choice.

It might have been a better idea to ease into the more “healthy” menu slowly so that the students (and parents) are not confronted by something that is unfamiliar and, if it turns out the student does not like the taste, might lead to hungry students because they just won’t eat it.

I am no cook but I would think preparing meals for a large number of students is not quite the same as a meal prepared for a small number or individual.

OT: In TX Lt. Gov. Race, Dan Patrick leads incumbent David Dewhurst 65-35 with 68% precincts in.
Dewhurst is toast.

Only in America would people getting perfectly good food find the time to sit around and b!tch about it.

And that is why we love this country.

yeah listen to what the poor kids who are forced to eat those meager portions of garbage say about it.

ONLY in America do poor kids get righteous about food. And feel that food is FORCED upon them.

When I was in school, we had no sodas, no candy bar, and no chips. But we had appealing and good tasting lunches that were also filling.

Maybe if the donks energy policies weren’t driving the costs of everything, especially food, they would have more money to spend on lunch.

thanks for putting up this thread. now a bunch of bitter hatefilled bigots will have another opportunity to call mrs obama and her lovely daughters nasty names and mock their weights and physical appearances.

Race has nothing to da with it. Liberal women are usually fugly regardless of race or national origin.

Democratic black women: Mooch, Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters

Republican black women: Mia Love and former Miss America Erika Harold.

The same case can be made for white women of both parties.

I remember lunch in pre-Vatican II Catholic schools – a choice of mini cheese pizza, tuna fish “hot dogs” or fish sticks and fries. Many of today’s public school students would kill to have those things on the menu.

Healthy eating should be encouraged, but never mandated. The government is overbearing enough as it is.

Moochelle draws attention towards her degeneracy and entitlement disorders.

Her appearance is not helped by her army surplus fashion choices, rudeness and perma-scowl.

She could change her repulsiveness but like all her other decrepitude it’s bound to be someone else’s fault. As usual.

viking01 on May 27, 2014 at 11:06 PM

Healthy eating is relative. What’s good for you, not good for me. Take a look into cafeteria food preparation practices. Can you say ‘lowest common denominator’?

DemetriusPhalerum on May 27, 2014 at 11:09 PM

Back to the food.

It stinks.

The stakes couldn’t be higher on this issue”, she said, pointing to obesity statistics in both children and adults. “The last thing we can afford to so right now is play politics with our kids health.”

Ms. Obama, you should heed your own words.

The planet called Earth and it is extremely desirable in any parts that is not populated by mainly people with European ancestry and Asians. Everybody does love Beyonce’s A$$ though. She is the global unifier in posterior desirability. Even the gays love dat a$$. Lol

LaWanda Page was actually a nice personable lady. I’ve never read anything negative about her.

Start punishing children for throwing out the food. If the child bit the food into the shape of a gun, they would be a war criminal. Certainly throwing out the food is worth detention.

Well, at least we can infer a couple of things from your comment:

a) You think Texas is in America, and
b) You have a stereotyped idea of the black female figure.

Ms. Obama does not have what I consider to be a healthy figure, and it’s easy to see why — too many state dinners like this one:

I’m sure Lawanda Page was terrific in the best way and I enjoyed her commercials during her later years…. but the character she played was Fred Sanford’s perfect nemesis as “Fred” was Aunt Esther’s.
