Complaints Mount Against Michelle Obama’s New Lunch Menu

HAHA! People are upset about a decent program sponsoring quality lunches (nutritious and healthy)?!? Are you kidding me? Perhaps the reason the kids are throwing the vegetables away is because their ignorant parents never brought them up on GOOD food... perhaps the guilt lies with the parents and not providing adequate nutrition for their children in the first place. I applaud the effort M. Obama has been making with nutrition awareness and healthy steps to living.

This whole lunch thing is STUPID, who is the government to say what and how much my child should and can eat. What makes them think that a 6'2 125# boy who burns close to if not 3,000 calories daily weight lifting and then participating in 3 hours of Varsity Football practice, daily eat the same amount of calories as a 100# female. (These meals aren't healthy for the athletes in the schools. You don't get the proper amount of protien and calcium in a high school meal that they need to remain healthy in their sports. ) The problem isn't what the kids are eating in Elementary, Middle or High School, it is a lack of exercise outside of the school. And... not everyone is built the same. Not everyone is going to be skinny it is just plain and s

They can't possibly provide different lunches for every different type of child. Hence, them providing an adequate portion for what is the most common and average type of child.

You do also realize that we are talking about one single meal... right? Your extremely large child can also eat at home whenever they want... bring to school whatever they want...

If it is a matter of this, you should be advocating every school opening up children to be able to order any type of food they want. Should we just open Taco Bells in every cafeteria to save time?

Good for you! Then you are really gonna love it when they come to inspect your refrigerator, tie your food purchases in with your courtesy card you give them every time you shop and then tie that in to your all electronic medical records. Stop pretending not to see what is actually happening.

You do realize the federal government has mandated what schools can provide for food for quite some time right...? And you realize of course that all they did was change it to something more nutritious... right? And you do realize there is an amazingly large difference between a public school funded by tax dollars and a private residence... right?

Or is the tin foil wrapped around your head too tightly?

Sorry, but no. I raised my kids eating vegetables. But hummus is one of those exceptions to the rule. Hummus falls into the category of "punishment food".

You are too stupid to realize what this really means. But you are right to say that PARENTS NOT GOVERNMENT need to step up. BUt since you want this typeof control, Please don't have any kids.

I want what type of control? For a public school, funded by public tax dollars, to provide the most nutritious types of meals for our children so they can learn healthy habits instead of only providing the things that create the health problems we see with the public now? Are you kidding? That was a joke... right? You couldn't possible think that it is an abhorrent level of control to actually give our kids... vegetables...

Awareness does mean shoving something down someone's throat, by force of law.

If I still had school-aged kids, I'd be helping them circumvent the rules.

Ms Obama should put down the rack of ribs, french fries, lobsters and caviar, if she wants to set an example.

No one is shoving anything down their throats. People even said, some kids are exercising their choice to not eat it.

Are you really not fully able to understand how much of a leap you took from relevance to idiocy?

So, it's okay with you that the kids get hummus and Mooooooooooooooochele gets pie from the pie store?

Uh, yea. Of course. They're children... we're supposed to be improving their lives and teaching them what they should actually be doing (including nutrition). The First Lady is a grown woman and capable of making her own decisions. Do you really need someone to explain the difference between children and adults?

Since when does someone with as big a bottom as she has get to tell me or others what to eat? Lose 20 to 30 off that bottom and then maybe ill listen. But as long as she is stuffing down a box of twinkies she can shut the heck up!!

I know kids in elementary school that can piece together a better piece of rhetoric than what you just said. Can you possibly rephrase what you said and exclude all the things that make you look like an absolutely idiotic piece of trash?

In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.

Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.
