Michelle Obama criticizes Trump school lunch decision

"You have to stop and think, 'Why don't you want our kids to have good food at school?' What is wrong with you?" Why would you sit idly and be okay with that? You can't handle that, mom.

As the Obamas were readying themselves to leave the White House, many called on the First Lady to make her own political run, a call that Michelle readily ignored.

The food industry wants to push the deadline from 2018 to 2020.

"Well, 'You just buy the food and be quiet".

When the Obama-era guidelines were first implemented, teens showed their disgust by posting viral images of unappetizing school lunches with the hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama.

In another part of her appearance, Obama ran contrary to the penchant of liberals who constantly insist that children should be given the same decision-making power as adults.

But Marton said the rules, such as they are, were made for different times. "This wasn't 'fake news, '" she said. "I would be highly insulted by that thought". And scroll down to see Michelle Obama's poignant comments about the Trump administration.

Obama emphasized that millions of students across the nation eat subsidized school lunches, making the push for healthier options all the more imperative.

Hepatitis C infections reach all time high
The number of new cases among young people pales in comparison, said Brian Skorney, an analyst with Robert W. Miller says people who are actively injecting drugs should get tested for the virus every six months.

The Food and Drug Administration has delayed the implementation of a requirement that restaurant chains provide nutritional information on the menu.

Four days later, on May 1, Secretary Perdue told reporters at the Virginia elementary school that his department meant to delay planned sodium reductions in school meals and grant waivers for schools who said they couldn't meet higher whole-grain requirements.

Obama suggested Friday that nutrition and health could be among of the causes the former president's new presidential center in Jackson Park could emphasize.

But it's clear, based on Obama and Kass' remarks on Friday, that they have not arrived at the same conclusion. - An equipment water leak shortened Friday's spacewalk by two US astronauts at the International Space Station, but they still managed to replace a faulty electronics box. The USDA reports school districts and states spent $1.22 billion more on school meals in 2015, but saw decreased student participation.

Perdue asserted that health restrictions resulted in increased food waste.

The Trump administration recently said it would delay federal rules promoted by Obama aimed at trying to make school lunches healthier.

"I paid him", Obama joked.

"My commitment to these issues is real", she said, adding "I picked this issue because there was deep passion for it as a mother".
