Mother Michelle Speaks to Her / Our Children


WASHINGTON, D.C. – First Lady Michelle Obama took to the airwaves Friday in a Channel One interview beamed into thousands of school classrooms to an estimated 5 million students across America.
.
According to a transcript provided on the Channel One website, Obama said, “I know kids are grumbling because they have to make changes. Trust me, my kids roll their eyes at me every time I tell them ‘you know you don’t have to finish your diner, but you have to finish your vegetables.’ But I know that I’m doing it because I’m giving my kids the best that I know I can give them.”

.
The First Lady made it clear she’s not backing down: “Don’t be mad because there are changes. Figure out why the changes are important, and then find out how you make it work for you.” 
.
You know, my kids like broccoli, celery, carrots – those kind of vegetables that have a little flavor, sweetness to it. And I would encourage kids to go over to those salad bars and just try a mixture of things, because sometimes if you mix a bunch of things up and you chop it up, the whole combination sounds pretty good.
.
In fact, the Channel One anchor, Maggie Rulli, pointed student viewers to her blog, where they would see some “first-lady-inspired lunches.”
.
“Look, I wouldn’t want to eat a nasty lunch either. Quite frankly, no one wants to eat bad food,” Obama said in the interview.

Sure, I know that there are more pressing issues facing the Nation today, but could we please spend a moment; one solitary moment, speaking on behalf of the children?  
 .

  • The children who are looking CHOICE.  
  • The children who are looking for FREEDOM.  
  • The children who are looking for a Hot Dog, Macaroni and Cheese, a dollop of Apple Sauce, and a pint of Chocolate Milk.

We learned a few weeks ago that school fundraising efforts are being monitored by alert State employees intent on adhering to stringent FLOTUS guidelines regarding the type and number of 'unhealthy choices' bake sales a school can have.  
 .

Sure, the elimination of bake sales, cookie sales, and spaghetti dinners will put additional financial burdens on schools trying to figure out how to fund new uniforms for the Football Team, the Golf Squad, the field hockey team, and the High School Marching Band, but given that the kids will be too weak and frail to participate in athletics, or to carry instruments in musical programs - they won't need those new uniforms after all!

Turn that frown upside down!!!

Hey kid, knock it off, you're bumming me out...

 .
So, how are students around the country responding to the new, healthy alternatives inflicted upon them by the un-elected spouse of the President of the United States?

BREITBART.COM:   Michelle Obama's School Lunch Program: $4 Million of Food Thrown in Trash Each Day.
"We don't want to have the most nutritious waste basket in the state or the country."
.
An investigative report by a Cincinnati TV station finds that the government's new school lunch requirements championed by First Lady Michelle Obama are wasting $4 million a day in discarded food that children won't eat.
.
The National School Lunch Program feeds upwards to 31 million American students a day, spending nearly $12 billion annually, but many of those children are throwing away the vegetables, fruits, and snacks forced on them by the new federal nutrition standards.
.
A new Harvard study of the program, WCPO Channel 9 reported, "shows that 60 percent of fresh vegetables and 40 percent of fresh fruit are being thrown away."
.
"And a recent study released by the National School Nutrition Association found 81.2 percent of schools surveyed indicated an increase in the amount of food being thrown away by students since the new nutrition standards went into effect two years ago," the televised report continued.
.
Nearly 600 school districts have already dropped out of the First Lady's lunch program, Fort Thomas Independent Schools in Northern Kentucky being one of them.
.
Fort Thomas School Superintendent Gene Kirchner pointed out that if the program is resulting in so much waste, then it is not very effective. "I have to think that across the country, it has to be a staggering amount of food going to waste, and I think there are people out there who could really use that food," he said.
.
In fact, according to one government study, over one million kids across the country have stopped eating lunch altogether after the new standards were imposed on their schools.


.
Welcome to the Obama's Fundamentally-Transformed America - yeah, it's how we roll...

Without the butter.
