Don't get between a Wookie and her food….

New bill would require WH dinners to follow same as school lunch guidelines

February 12, 2014 by Janeen Capizola
Obama WH state dinner


Tuesday night’s glutton-fest of a White House state dinner for French President François Hollande was the perfect example of why U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis has introduced legislation that would require official White House meals to follow the same USDA mandated guidelines for school lunch and breakfast programs.

Davis’ bill, H.R. 3686, the School Nutrition Fairness Act, is “to make sure this Administration is aware of the real-life impact their regulations are having on kids who are going hungry and our smaller school districts who are struggling to keep up with the increased costs,” he wrote on Facebook Tuesday.

The Washington Times reported that the meal served to guests at Tuesday’s dinner ran an estimated 2,500 calories, “which is almost three times as much as what the first lady and the USDA allow our school kids to eat in the school lunch program,” Davis said. It’s “the height of hypocrisy.”

The dinner’s high-calorie menu shattered the USDA standards of approximately 1,200 total calories per day for students that the first lady touted as part of her anti-obesity campaign.

Not to mention the government mandated, small meal portion size leaving kids hungry, as well as the complaints from students and parents about school lunches that “taste like vomit.”

According to the Times, the White House dinner consisted of:

[A] main course of dry-aged ribeye beef served with blue cheese, 12 varieties of potatoes and quail eggs.

The first course was American Osetra caviar, farmed from sturgeon in estuaries in Illinois, followed by a “winter garden salad.”

Dessert was a selection of sweets: a chocolate malted cake that combined bittersweet chocolate from Hawaii and tangerines from Florida, served with vanilla ice cream made in Pennsylvania. Also on the menu were fudge made from Vermont maple syrup, lavender shortbread cookies and cotton candy dusted with orange zest.

Pretty hard to ask people to “Let’s Move” after that meal.

How about two threads, without any misleading or editorializing titles?

Or, you could use common sense. The dumb topics are fine with me. The multiple threads on the same thing are kind of stupid though.

Do we have a lot of interesting threads being pushed off he front page because too many threads are being created? I don't really see this as a problem at the moment.

If he wanted to bring attention to the shit they are giving kids at school, then he should simply address that topic. There's no rational reason to need to equate caloric intake for two events that are as completely different as school lunches and political dinners. That's just dumb.

This is nothing more than a cheap shot being used to criticize Mrs. Obama. A complete waste.

No it didn't. It brought attention to the state dinner.

Also, whatever the federal standards are for school lunches (which Michelle has nothing to do with), that's not the reason for lousy food. Why does requiring a vegetable mean the spaghetti has to taste like shit?

Also, I'll take your word for it that today's kids bitch about the lunches they get at school. Yet I seem to recall the exact same thing when I was in school, and that was well before Obama ruined everything.

Surely you saw that all I said was: "multiple threads on the same thing are kind of stupid though."

Discussing the same thing in 2, 3 or 4 threads at the same time is stupid.
