View Full Version : Obama Complaints Mount Against Michelle Obamaís New Lunch Menu

In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.

Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.

"I know a lot of my friends who are just drinking a jug of milk for their lunch. And they are not getting a proper meal," middle school student Samantha Gortmaker told Keloland.com.

Despite the fact that the new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, itís not pleasing students.

Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market - for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze, according to SouthCoastToday.com.

Nancy Carvalho, director of food services for New Bedford Public Schools, was quoted as saying that hummus and black bean salads have been tough sells in elementary cafeterias. That means even smaller children are going through the day fighting hunger pains, which can never be considered a good thing.

One government official tried to put the blame on the students.

"One thing I think we need to keep in mind as kids say they're still hungry is that many children aren't used to eating fruits and vegetables at home, much less at school. So it's a change in what they are eating. If they are still hungry, it's that they are not eating all the food that's being offered," USDA Deputy Undersecretary Janey Thornton was quoted as saying.

Ms. Thornton just put her finger on the problem. The government is trying to impose a new diet that children are not accustomed to. Itís not reasonable to expect them to either eat what the government deems healthy or go hungry.

Many will opt to go hungry, and thatís the governmentís fault.

But good for them.

And I don't want to hear the bullshit that the school is somehow violating personal liberties. If you don't like the lunch they provide, pack your own.

You are assuming that every single kid in that school is demanding unhealthy food in the schools. Or that every kid is pissed off that they are serving healthier options. Again, why should kids who want healthy options be forced to eat unhealthy food because it's the only option?

And again, I don't support taking away lunches if a kid packs it. I highly doubt that's actually happening unless there's some overzealous school doing it. If that's the case, gov't isn't forcing anything. They are offering a healthy option, and you have the option to pack your own if you hate it.

That may be, BUT it begins in the homeónot with govt action.

Expecting kids not used to such foods to eat it is not common sense.

It's a fucking school. A school is a government action. It is a place aimed at teaching kids to become better adults. Maybe we should teach calculus at home instead of asking the government to do it.

Nutrition is a critical learning we can be teaching to kids, as is physical education.

Again, there are kids not used to eating shitty food at home. They are forced to eat shitty food at school. Why does freedom only apply to those who eat like shit, and not to those who are consciously trying to eat better?

Kansas story on School Lunch issues....

School lunch calorie limits leave bitter taste with some Kansas students
Stay Connected





Register | Log in
Suzanne Perez Tobias | Wichita Eagle
Some Kansas students and at least one political leader say new school lunch guidelines aimed at limiting calories and encouraging good nutrition are having an unintended consequence:

Hungry kids.

“Here we are in the Wheat State … and I’ve heard some very sad stories recently about school lunches,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler.

One was from Wallace County High School in Sharon Springs, where students and teachers created a YouTube parody, “We Are Hungry,” that blasts the new calorie guidelines:

Give me some seconds, I,

I need to get some food today

My friends are at the corner store

Getting junk so they don’t waste away …

The video, based on the Fun. hit “We Are Young,” shows students staring woefully at lunch trays, stuffing lockers with junk food, collapsing during volleyball practice and crawling on the ground in exhaustion.

“There’s just not enough” food, said 16-year-old Callahan Grund, a football player and star of the video. By Friday it had garnered 48,000 views – more than 62 times the population of Sharon Springs, a farming town not far from the Colorado border.

“When you have chores in the morning and football practice after school, you need energy. … This doesn’t cut it,” Grund said.

The major sticking point: a new federal rule that sets calorie maximums for school lunches — 650 calories for elementary-schoolers, 700 for middle-schoolers and 850 for high-schoolers.

Protesters in Kansas and elsewhere say 850 calories isn’t enough for some high-schoolers, particularly athletes who can burn calories by the thousands.

State education and nutrition officials say portion sizes at most districts haven’t changed. Students in Wichita, for instance, can get more food at lunch this year because there’s a wider array of options, a la carte items and nearly unlimited servings of fruits and vegetables.

Pockets of protest seem to be coming from districts that once ignored calorie maximums, said Cheryl Johnson, director of child nutrition and wellness for the Kansas Department of Education.

Until this fall, districts that opted to spend more could supplement standard school lunches, serving larger portion sizes and offering extra servings of entrees, breads and other high-calorie items.

“Some schools were providing excess food, above the requirements and the nutrition guidelines,” Johnson said. “That’s the reason we’re seeing some comments and protests.

“For the most part, we feel the new guidelines and menus are being well-received.”

Brown-bag protests

The new guidelines — the first major overhaul of school meals in 15 years — also require cafeterias to serve less fat and sodium and more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Linda O’Connor, an English teacher at Wallace County High School, penned the “We Are Hungry” parody after a colleague, Brenda Kirkham, posted a photo of her school lunch on Facebook and sparked dozens of outraged comments.

The lunch included one cheese-stuffed bread stick, a small dollop of marinara sauce, three apple slices and some raw spinach. Kirkham supplemented the lunch with items from a salad bar, including cubes of ham, bacon bits and dressing, which were available only to teachers.

“I asked why the sauce had no meat and I was informed that due to the breadsticks containing cheese, the meat would put us over the guidelines for protein,” Kirkham wrote.

“Now think of a high school boy who works out at least three hours a day, not including farm work. … I’m furious. The ‘cheese’ inside the breadstick is approximately three bites. This is ridiculous.”

In past weeks, students in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and St. Mark’s school near Colwich have organized brown-bag protests, packing their own lunches instead of buying school meals.

Huelskamp and Rep. Steve King, a Republican from Iowa, have introduced a bill that would repeal the calorie maximums imposed by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which won congressional approval in 2010.

Huelskamp said the new lunch guidelines are “a perfect example of what is wrong with government: misguided inputs, tremendous waste and unaccomplished goals.”

He also opposes rules that require students to take servings of a fruit or vegetable at lunch, regardless of whether they plan to eat it.

“If every member of Congress would actually go into a school cafeteria and take a look at the trash can, they’d see that what sounds good on paper doesn’t always work out like you think,” Huelskamp said.

Planning other meals

Vicki Hoffman, director of nutrition services for Wichita schools, said reaction to the new lunches so far has been mostly positive.

Wichita schools cut down on waste by setting up “share tables,” where students can leave items such as bananas, oranges or packaged foods they don’t want.

“There’s still some waste, but not as bad as we might have expected,” she said. “We’re also seeing kids eat things they might not have eaten before.”

Johnson, the state official, said claims that school lunches don’t provide enough food to keep high school athletes energized through practice are unfair and misguided.

“It’s one meal. It is designed to meet the nutrient needs of an average student of that age group, but it’s never going to meet the needs of students who burn far more calories,” Johnson said.

“We need to encourage breakfasts at home or at school. We need to encourage students to take all of the items at lunch and then to plan for after-school activities by packing a healthy snack.”

School districts that once financed bigger lunches could continue to offer extra food and comply with the calorie restrictions by establishing an afternoon snack program, Johnson said.

Parents of athletes and other active children should make sure they have a healthy snack between school and practice, Johnson said.

“The guidelines don’t say this is the only food a student should have all day,” she said. “We know from research that it is much better to have six small meals and snacks during the day as opposed to a lot of food at one time.”

Sam Eckels, a sophomore at Northeast Magnet High School in Wichita, said his school lunch portions — one recent day it was steak fingers, mashed potatoes with gravy, peas and applesauce — are adequate. But he packs fruit snacks and a sports drink to keep him going through after-school basketball conditioning at East High.

“The lunches are pretty good,” he said last week. “I don’t see any difference from last year.”

Kirkham, the Sharon Springs teacher, said she has started letting students eat snacks during her afternoon classes, even in art.

“I have quite a few football guys come in here, and I’m like, ‘Hurry up and eat so it doesn’t get on your project,’ ” she said. “I mean, they’re starving.

“This isn’t about some spoiled kids who want too much food.”

What is a typical diet based on? 2000 calories

If the lunch is 850 that leaves 1150 to split between dinner and breakfast. That's not exactly starving the attention span out of them.

I guess I'm surprised no one has attacked the flimsy premises of the OP article.

How is the first lady in charge of the Department of Ag? Aren't they to blame?

How did they come up with that food price increase? 25 cents a plate? Isn't that due to rising grain/corn prices? Hell corn is in everything now, have these people compared this to normal food price increases?

Some of that price increase is due to the removal of finely textured lean beef from the school menu. Remember all the ignorant people throwing a fit over what they called "Pink slime"? This is another unfortunate outcome of that.

Some days are better than others, but for the most part my 4 kids don't really care for the lunches. So, we pack a lunch every day. Not a huge deal.

Only real issue I have with it is the cost went up about a dollar per lunch for quite a bit less food. Plus they took away the salad bar because the school can't determine how many calories the kids are getting. When my teenager doesn't take a lunch, he generally ends up buying a lunch, and then getting something off the a la carte....problem is that lunch ends up costing $5+.

How many of these parent rely on on the school for lunch? A staggering amount I'm sure. So the next question is if the school has that responsibility then would I rather them feed my child a nutritious lunch or a bunch of quarter pounders? I would have to say yes to the nutritious lunch.

Keep in mind here that they aren't denying the right to bring your own lunch, they've just decided to make the meals that they serve fewer calories. There's plenty of reasons for that.

This isn't so much a law or regulation as it is a focus on healthier choices.

I've said this before and I stand by it.....

Until changes are made to eating habits at home, it doesn't really matter what the menu at School is, because that is not where kids are becoming fatties.

School food programs really do keep some kids from being hungry. I support the breakfast, lunch programs as well as something in Iowa called backpack buddies that sends a backpack with food home with kids in need, so they have something to eat on weekends.

That said....you want to change obesity? Change welfare. Provide prepackaged healthy meals instead of a blank check for Doritos and soda. Make families on welfare meet with a nutritionist every month or so for meal planning guidance. Stop treating kids like babies and actually make them exercise in gym class.

How does one provide a prepackaged healthy meal? Fairly certain that doesn't exist. I do agree that some items should not be able to be purchased with food stamps. For example candy, soda, uncooked foods over a certain price per lb(that'll fix the t bones and crab legs).

To be clear I agree with the changing of food stamp and nutritious programs for welfare.

Ever hear of "meals from the heartland"?

Millions of meals are packaged and sent to foreign countries every year, packaged by volunteer groups.

MRE. Pretty sure a lot of options exist.

We haven't committed delicious food to our poor, we've committed to feed them. Prepackaged food with maybe 5 meal choices for each of 3 meals, and vouchers for additional supplements like milk, eggs, butter wouldn't be that hard to do.

Hell, take it a step further and require able bodied recipients to meet at a community building in each county or city to package the meals as part of their "back to work" training.

In addition, able bodied people should be required to pick up their bi-weekly or monthly supply in person. On those days, public health, counseling, job skills and education programs could be provided, helping those who truly want to improve do so.

Don't like the meal options? Get a job.

Sure, the person buying the shit is partially to blame.

Should none of the blame be placed at the door of "big food"? They make sure their products are cheap and readily available, and I guarantee they would make every attempt to block legislation aimed at limiting the food choices of those on welfare.

Our district allows us to choose if our child is allowed to purchase ala carte items or not within it's online payment system. Ala carte items are a no-go for our kids. We teach our kids they can eat what is in front of them or you can choose to not eat.

Obama's UN Speech today:

"The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a countryís resources Ė it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the men and women that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support."

2016 review - D'Souza
Anti-colonialism, DíSouza explains, is the worldview that sees Americaís net effect in the world as bad, not good. It also is the belief that America and European countries got wealthy not through capitalism, entrepreneurship, and innovation, but by exploiting Third World countries and stealing their natural resources.

Through interviews with Obamaís fatherís friends and colleagues, and a close examination of some of Barack Sr.ís written work, DíSouza shows that Obamaís father espoused this very worldview. Obamaís mother, Ann Dunham, though only married to Barack Sr. for a short time, always loved and respected him. By reading passages from Obamaís book, Dreams from My Father, DíSouza shows that Ann passed many of Obamaís fatherís beliefs to our president when they lived in Indonesia with her second husband during Obamaís childhood.

Can we just move on to the next random unrelated grievance? This one is pretty dull.

I don't know, did you post 5 posts in the other ones saying how boring and unimportant they were?

I would think those with a brain would be the ones who started a new thread about this rather than post it in a thread about school lunches.

If your Obama buddy hadn't taken away thread starting ability, I would have.

Don't worry with the substance, bitch about where you read it.

It would probably help if we got some specifics. For example the only specific number we've gotten out of Romney is 47% and that wasn't intentional.

Maybe he should just promise to reduce the unemployment rate to a specific number and then make excuses about why he can't fulfill the promise later.

I'm reading about school lunches. That's what the thread is. To have a conversation about something else would be hijacking a thread. Hijacking is bad.

I've said this before and I stand by it.....

Until changes are made to eating habits at home, it doesn't really matter what the menu at School is, because that is not where kids are becoming fatties.

School food programs really do keep some kids from being hungry. I support the breakfast, lunch programs as well as something in Iowa called backpack buddies that sends a backpack with food home with kids in need, so they have something to eat on weekends.

That said....you want to change obesity? Change welfare. Provide prepackaged healthy meals instead of a blank check for Doritos and soda. Make families on welfare meet with a nutritionist every month or so for meal planning guidance. Stop treating kids like babies and actually make them exercise in gym class.

Outstanding post.

I said nothing of promises. I said some specifics. Lowering some taxes, reducing deductions might give some people a tax break tells me nothing.

Obama's UN Speech today:

"The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a countryís resources Ė it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the men and women that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support."

2016 review - D'Souza
Anti-colonialism, DíSouza explains, is the worldview that sees Americaís net effect in the world as bad, not good. It also is the belief that America and European countries got wealthy not through capitalism, entrepreneurship, and innovation, but by exploiting Third World countries and stealing their natural resources.

Through interviews with Obamaís fatherís friends and colleagues, and a close examination of some of Barack Sr.ís written work, DíSouza shows that Obamaís father espoused this very worldview. Obamaís mother, Ann Dunham, though only married to Barack Sr. for a short time, always loved and respected him. By reading passages from Obamaís book, Dreams from My Father, DíSouza shows that Ann passed many of Obamaís fatherís beliefs to our president when they lived in Indonesia with her second husband during Obamaís childhood.


Not that this matters at all to the Obombies - just should matter to those with a brain who know what this POS is up to.

Thanks God we have enough Americans on the Hill to filibuster, frustrate and blockade this asshole until we are rid of him.

I saw hundreds of tweets comparing the RNC to a Klan rally and saying Rice was an Uncle Tom, but I guess the left is immune to racial politics to a middle of the road person such as yourself.

You've got to be effing kidding, Liberals spend half their time on the internet bitching about what they saw some random person in an SUV doing that one time.

"He was yakking with his rethug buddies on his shitty bluetooth earpiece."

"His one tire was almost entirely over the painted lines in the parking lot."

"She pulled over to take her phone call, but then JUST SAT THERE belching carbon. Heaven forbid you go without air conditioning for a couple minutes."

And that's just the niche subject of greedy uncaring white people in large automobiles.

Well, it should only affect the obese person's health costsónot everyone else's. That's how a private system would operate.
Yeah, but you guys want no pre-existing conditions to matter.

In a collectivist system, that you prefer, you wind up controlling everyone's premiums. So by extension rights of others.

The cost of obesity is so high that you the only way you could do that is to offer astronomically high insurance rates to obese people. So the only alternative is to raise the rate on the entire pool of insureds.

Unless you're suggesting that it's okay to let the obese go uninsured. That doesn't make sense on so many levels. Main problem being that If you take insureds out of the insurance pool, you have less people in the pool which drives premiums up.

This isn't rocket science. Reducing obesity benefits everyone. No matter how much people want to stretch the truth.

Sensible on the last part.

I disagree, however, that kids can't turn homes into healthy ones. Its absolutely ridiculous that we slashed home ec and phys Ed from so many schools. Teach kids to cook food and exercise. If kids can help cook meals for families, their food costs go down.

I was rebutting suzie's claim that liberals don't spazz out over minutae.

I've seen discussion boards and comment sections where they spazz at the very sight of an SUV, even the memory of the sight of one from years past. They craft these intricate backstories; on his way back to his gated community in the exurbs, to his McMansion, where he pays the hardworking Mexican nothing to pump toxic sludge on his lawn, where he sits down to stuff his face with cow flesh shipped to him from 1/2 a world away, . . . but we can rejoice that his stainless steel grill he had the butler cook it on is probably giving him cancer.
