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.

Well, the government is taking over a lot of the responsibility that families used to take care of. With the breakdown of the family, kids are being parented by schools, and later the police.

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.
It's not even close Cosmo. Schools are dumping most of it down the trash. It did bring attention to it too. You guys did the same crap under Bush. Now you can deal with it.

Cosmo, you keep saying that Mrs. Obama didm't have anything to do with the school lunch program, and perhaps she didn't vote on any policy, because as far as I know they haven't given her that power, yet.

But you are either being intentionally dishonest, or a complete buffoon if you can't even google "Michelle Obama School Lunch Program."

Shouldn't that be "and/or"?
