House GOP Bill Would Roll Back Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Rules
Apparently schools are getting some stuff in their spines and looking for ways to shed Michelle Obama’s unpopular and bland school lunch rules. The Department of Agriculture–the agency responsible for regulations and funding–has agreed to delay adding more whole-grain foods to school meals because schools are complaining about the new rules.
The Agriculture Department will allow some schools to delay adding more whole-grain foods to meals this year, responding to criticism from school nutrition officials and Congress that the standards were too difficult to put in place.
The delay comes hours after a Republican-led House spending panel criticized the Obama administration’s healthier school-lunch standards and proposed letting some schools opt out of them entirely.
USDA said schools can put off for two years a requirement that all grain products in schools be whole-grain rich, or more than half whole grain, if they can demonstrate that they have had “significant challenges” in preparing those products. Many schools have complained that the whole-grain pastas don’t hold together well when cooked.
Maybe if schools can put Michelle’s hated regulations off long enough until the Obama’s are thankfully gone, we can all get rid of them and their influence.
