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

The “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010″ mandates that public schools serve a narrow range of pre-selected, government-approved foods. Foods that, apparently, kids hate, and aren’t eating, and thus spending the rest of their schoolday hungry. And hungry kids don’t lern so gud.

Huzzah. Another “central planning success story.”

  • I’m no fan of the Obamas but in this case– Well, if the descriptions of the foods offered are accurate (whole-wheat bread, plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, low-fat milk) and the little darlings *can* pass it up, then let ’em do without; clearly, they’re not *really* hungry. They would eat it and happily if they were genuinely missing meals.

    Compared to the starchy, overcooked and mostly-canned/processed school lunches of my day, it sounds pretty darned good.

      Descriptions are one thing. What they get onto their plates is another. Plus, part of it is utterly ridiculous. Low-fat milk? What’s the point of that? To make the kids healthy? Yeah… about that… once they’re out of school they’ll head to McD or some other fast food joint and stuff their faces there. It will change exactly nothing. And it’s part of this complete nonsense of “recommended daily intake” that is the hype these days. Not to mention that low-fat milk tastes weird compared to real milk.

      But then again, it’s the brain child of Michelle, who, in all honesty, should be silent about telling other people what they must eat. She’s hardly at the ideal BMI herself.

        Hardly

        *Yeah… about that… once they’re out of school they’ll head to McD or
        some other fast food joint and stuff their faces there. It will change
        exactly nothing.*

        So nothing should be done? Utterly useless.

        *But then again, it’s the brain child of Michelle, who, in all
        honesty, should be silent about telling other people what they must eat.
        She’s hardly at the ideal BMI herself.*

        Thank you for revealing yourself to be a troll. All your points are thus worthless.

    Ohhh, you don’t understand! The little ones want only pizza, or maccaroni with ketch, or burgers with fries. Not something.. Uhhh… healthy!!

    The food tastes like vomit, eh? Wow it has improved!
