When President Obama was elected, Michelle was dying to get her hands on something. Of course she takes on the incredibly controversial and important topic of food for children. To be honest, this was doomed from the start. After a few years of children at school being miserable eating their lunch, Trump dumps Michelle Obama’s awful school lunch program.
From her Ivory Tower, Michelle Obama decided she would push healthy food on children. But that wasn’t enough. It eventually evolved into an exercise program called “Let’s Move!” The whole thing was a complete disaster and not appetizing at all.
There were a ton of complaints about it. Let’s take a look at some examples.

One student went so far to say that school lunches are much better in Nicaragua.

Trump Dumps Michelle Obama’s Awful School Lunch Program
This is all about to become part of the past. Per The Hill:
Newly minted Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is expected to unveil a new rule Monday aimed at giving schools more flexibility in meeting federal nutrition standards for school lunches.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced Friday that Perdue and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) will make the announcement at the Catoctin Elementary School in Leesburg, Va., where they are expected to eat lunch with the students.
Republicans have long been trying to dial back the standards that became a pillar of former first lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to curb childhood obesity in the U.S.
Roberts introduced legislation with Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) last year to give schools two more years to meet new reductions on sodium, but the bill never passed.
Renewed efforts to ease the federal standards came as disappointing news to some advocates.
Now that Donald Trump is our president, he has decided to make school lunches great again. Michelle Obama set the bar very low, so Trump should have no problem making the students happy.
