Teen leads charge fighting back against Michelle Obama’s national school food ban

mchlwmblnchMeghan Hellrood, a high school student in Weston, Wis., has had enough of the unelected First Lady ruining student lunches with her misnamed Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids program. She has no expertise in the area and certainly is no model for a healthy size. To fight back, Meghan has organized “Pack a Bag Day” to encourage students to start bringing their own lunches, boycotting the paltry, unhealthy school lunches. Meghan finds it absurd that the meals are too scrawny for her – a 90-pound, 4-foot-11 teenager – much less a “220-pound senior football star.” 

According to RARE, Meghan explained what’s wrong with the program,

“It’s not actually giving us healthy foods. It’s giving us small portions of very processed foods. Kids aren’t happy about that.”

“[Athletes] are not performing as well as they could, and people’s test scores are going down because they’re hungry throughout the day,” she said.

Hellrood said the last straw came when her school began rationing condiments. She called on students to pack their lunches instead of paying into the school’s lunch program.

“We’re finding small portions of very processed food, so we’re just finding smaller portions of pizza and smaller portions of chicken patties. We’re not finding actual healthy foods,” she told WPR.

Who elected Michelle Obama to Food Czar? The left claims to want the government out of our bodies, so why is she telling our kids what to do with their mouths and stomachs? Watch the video below.
