Michelle O’s L.A. School Lunch Menu: Potato-Chive Waffles and a ‘Black Bean Mountain’

When Los Angeles school lunch bureaucrats realized their new menu of sushi and broccoli and beef with brown rice was roundly rejected by students last year, their attitude was try, try again.

This school year, they’ll be offering what they think are more tantalizing dishes such as taco salad and chicken and waffles.

But the L.A. Daily News reports it will be potato and chive waffles with no sugar added, to stay in compliance with new federal lunch regulations championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Students will also be dining on a “black bean mountain” along with a cucumber and tomato salad and a “warm pear and raisin compote.”

Perhaps the bureaucrats’ strategy is to starve the kids into slimming down. Do they really think this fare will go over any better?

Food Services chief David Binkle called the waffle “savory” and believes it will be a “successful product.”

The school district estimates students threw away more than 8 million meals last year, according to the paper.

It’s just the latest example of a string of problems created by the federal overhaul of school lunches.

A report from the Government Accountability Office cited increased food waste, loss of school revenue due to decreased sales and increased administrative costs among the headaches created by the new regulations.
