Kentucky students to first lady Michelle Obama: Your food 'tastes like vomit'

Kentucky students to first lady Michelle Obama: Your food ‘tastes like  vomit’


Students in a rural Kentucky county — and their parents — are the latest to  join a growing national chorus of scorn for the healthy school lunches  touted by first lady Michelle Obama.

“They say it tastes like vomit,” said Harlan County Public Schools board  member Myra Mosley at a contentious board meeting last week, reports The Harlan Daily Enterprise.

The growing body of USDA meal regulations implemented by the Department of  Agriculture under the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of  2010″ has long been a signature issue for the first lady.

Denizens of Harlan County don’t much care, though. Their primary concern at  the board meeting was a bevy of complaints that local children are starving at  lunch — and for the remainder of the school day — because the food on offer in  the cafeteria is crappy and there isn’t nearly enough of it.

“Kids can’t learn when  they’re hungry!” parents shouted to the board, according to the Enterprise.

Other gripes involved the new bread, which students don’t want  to eat because it’s brown wheat bread, and the new milk, which is skim or one  percent fat, not two percent or whole. The cafeteria’s chocolate- and  strawberry-flavored milk offerings are now nonfat.

Jack Miniard, the school district’s director of school and community  nutrition, was on hand to explain that the federal government now governs both  food choices and portion sizes in most American school districts including  Harlan County.

Under the National School  Lunch Program, participating schools must provide lunches — including free or  reduced price lunches — with minimum amounts of fresh fruits, fresh vegetables  and whole grains. Also, in what presumably falls outside the hunger-free aspect  of the act, there’s a calorie cap: 850 for high school lunches, 700 for middle  schools and a mere 650 calories for kids in elementary school.


Students can only have one serving of meat or other protein. However, rich  kids can buy a second portion each day on their own dime.

Servings of carbohydrates such as potatoes are limited to just a single  serving of three-fourths of a cup per student.

On the plus side, students can eat as many fruits and vegetables as they  want.

Across the country, students and parents have expressed dissatisfaction with  the federal government’s new food regime. Some wealthier suburban school  districts are simply backing out  of the National School Lunch Program, though doing so can mean giving up a  six-figure annual subsidy for the district.

Good for them, people are omly going to take so much, especially when it's well known that it comes from the "do as I say, not as I do" set. (Remember when Michelle took the kids to ice cream parlors in Europe?)
To paraphrase Scarface, "You like that? You got a chivato on every corner, tell you what to do, what to think, what to eat..........."

I have two boys in high school that play sports. There is no way in H*** that salads and fruit will give them the energy to ge through practice. What she should be doing is focusing on summer activities that keep bored kids from killing innocent people.

This is completely typical and in keeping with Democrats' passion to control people. They just can't mind their own f'ing business and leave other people alone. It's their nature. It's their calling card.

And I'll tell you something else. When Obamacare is fully implemented, those kids aren't going to have any other options than to eat the crap Michelle is telling them to eat. Because the Democrats are going to say as long as the government is facilitating your healthcare, we have to make sure you eat healthy to keep costs down.

And then when the Democrats' warrant-less home searches begin to make sure your guns are stored right and you're not smoking if you have children and that you're not breaking any other laws in your home, they can check your food supply to make sure you don't have any non-government-approved food hidden anywhere.

Yeah, life under the "fundamental transformation of America" that the low-info crowd gave us is gonna be just wonderful.
