I ate school lunches in the 60s and early 70s. They were decent for the most part. It really bugged me when something was served that I couldn't stomach, like the buttered kale or the pizza, and I couldn't just turn it down, I had to take it for the sake of appearances then pitched it. Kids have odd tastes and some, for instance, just love buttered kale. Why not accommodate for this diversity (hey one of your favorite words Moochelle) as far as possible with sane choices, about which Uncle Sam totally butts out.

Congressional Republicans are taking action against Michelle Obama’s school lunch menu, which was implemented by the USDA in August.

The modifications to the standards have left students hungry and dissatisfied with their lunch options, according to reports conducted throughout the nation. has reported about students protesting, a cafeteria employee saying she and her colleagues are barred from serving seconds and forced to throw away extra food, and the National Education Association stating schools should use tactics to “creatively engage and educate students” on the new requirements.
