More than a million students in America have dropped out of the National School Lunch Program thanks to Michelle Obama’s lunch control rules. The low-calorie, ultra-restrictive Federal mandates – which are tied to funding – have cost schools millions of dollars in wasted lunches. (See here, here, and here)
And the children who do eat the lunches are underfed and don’t have the nutrition they need for athletic activities. That’s why students are in FULL REVOLT against Michelle’s busy-body progressive lunch policies and have expressed their outrage on social media.
Now, Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Mo., a former nutritionist, is fighting to stop Michelle Obama! She co-sponsored a bill known as the Reducing Federal Mandates on School Lunch Act, which limits the Department of Agriculture from enforcing the nationwide lunch control rules.
And she’s touring schools to speak out against the mandates. This is EPIC!
She met with the Jefferson Middle School Council recently to tour the school’s lunch operations, and better understand how the new regulations championed by Michelle Obama are taking a toll on schools and students, the Buffalo Reflex reports.
“As a parent and someone who taught nutritional science for 11 years, I want nothing more than for our kids to grow up healthy,” Hartzler said. “Unfortunately, the rules being pushed on our schools are inhibiting that. What we are seeing is wasted food, soaring costs and declining participation. These regulations have caused Columbia Public Schools to lose over $2 million over the last two years. According to its superintendent, they may have to look at cutting staff and faculty jobs to cover the losses.”
Hartzler is co-sponsoring the Reducing Federal Mandates on School Lunch Act to peel back some of the more onerous requirements of the Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010, the original law that tightened school food restrictions.
South Dakota U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem is co-sponsoring the proposed changes with Hartzler, with support from the National School Board Association and the School Superintendents Association, according to the news site.
“The current standards of the National School Lunch program represent more of the administration’s failing one-size-fits-all responses to an issue best handled at the state and local levels,” said Hartzler, who taught high schoolers about healthy eating and balanced diets for over a decade before becoming a lawmaker.
“The fact that kids are declining to participate is proof enough that this program isn’t working. We need to allow schools to have the flexibility required to provide a nutritious meal that kids will actually eat,” she said.
These are tough words from an accomplished nutritionist! She knows that Michelle Obama’s lunch mandates – which do not affect Michelle’s children who attend an expensive private school in Washington, D.C. – should be repealed entirely.
Our children need to be properly fed to learn math, science, and English to be competitive in today’s global marketplace. Turning our schools into a sociology experiment is a dream of progressives, and Michelle loves telling children what they can’t eat.
Lunch rules should be decided by local school districts and parents… not bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.
