Good News: Brandon Admin Starts Mucking Around With School Lunches

Kids were finally starting to get decent school meals after the disastrous Obama years, where Michelle Obama decided to put her own stamp on the lunches in public schools, creating something inedible. The Obama’s kids sure didn’t eat this slop at their high toned fancy to do private school, of course. And, of course, the tiny portions

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Friday it is making changes to its school nutrition standards for the 2022-2023 school year, seeking to reinstate health goals that were rolled back throughout the Trump administration.

The Biden administration will make schools and child-care providers offer low-fat or nonfat non-flavored milks, and limit the fat in sweet flavored milks, among other things. At least 80 percent of the grains served in school lunch and breakfast each week must be considered rich in whole grains, under the new policies. And while the weekly sodium limit for school lunch and breakfast will remain at the current level, there will be a 10 percent decrease required for the 2023-2024 school year.

These adjustments would mark a change from the direction that the Trump administration took when it came to nutrition standards at schools. Trump aides had rolled back rules, initially easing policies regarding whole grain, nonfat milk and sodium, citing food waste and nonparticipation as key rationales.

Well, not as bad as Michelle Obama’s initiative (which her kids didn’t participate in, of course), but, slowly going that way. Most of the kids loathed the low-fat and no-fat milk. They’re kids: the fat content of a thing of milk is no big deal for kids, unlike us older folks. Will we soon be seeing crappy lunch memes?

USDA Deputy Under Secretary Stacy Dean told reporters Thursday that while the pandemic hasn’t ended, it has highlighted the essential role that school meals play in combating hunger and getting vital nutrition to the more than 30 million children who rely on these programs every day.

You know combats hunger? Not serving garbage food that the kids won’t eat.

The Biden administration changes are largely a return to Obama-era nutrition standards established in 2012, which the USDA’s nutrition study found to have a dramatic effect on diet quality: For the 2009-2010 school year, student’s Healthy Eating Index for breakfast was 49.6 out of 100, rising to 71.3 by the 2014-2015 school year. In that same time frame, the lunch score went from 57.9 to 81.5.

Have fun, kids, in your return to the Obama years.

    Huh… President and Mrs Obama are both fit, President Biden is fit… trump is a fat, bloated pig. Coincidence?

    Heaven forbid that schools deliver nutritious meals to students.

      If you think Trump is a fat bloated pig then how would you describe Whoopie? Be gentle, she’s a negress and it is black history month. Plus, she’s on a temporary paid vacation from her $7 million “The View” gig. Poor oppressed black.

    What’s all the whining about? Some of the pictures show ample catsup which from the Raygun years was considered a nutritious vegetable.

    Why is the federal government in any way involved with what school cafeterias serve?
