Michelle Obama, known for her efforts to force school kids to “eat their peas” is now in a food fight with the School Nutrition Association.
The School Nutrition Association – which initially championed the new federal lunch standards on fruits, vegetables, salt, fat, sugar and virtually every other aspect of school lunches when they were implemented in 2012 – is now lobbying Congress to dial back the “overly prescriptive” and expensive changes.
The New York Times reports:
“Congress is listening, and it is considering legislation to delay the nutrition regulations for a year, some of which have already gone into effect."
School trash cans fill with uneaten "healthy" school lunches.
