Michelle Obama’s controversial lunch program has been making waves for the last few years–after replacing traditional food options in school cafeterias with “healthy” options have led to a barrage of complaints from students.
Students have complained about everything from taste to selection to the sheer amount of food–often, to get under federal calorie restrictions, schools have instead served tiny portions of unhealthy food, leaving students hungry. Worse, there have been a number of reports of teachers confiscated unhealthy lunches packed by parents themselves.
But, as bad as it was that she’s dictating what America’s children can eat, now Michelle Obama’s turning towards parents, in a push to force adults–responsible, decision-making adults–to eat healthier.
The McAllen Independent School District in Texas is the only district in the nation to have 100% participation in Michelle’s school lunch Let’s Move! Program.
Now, McAllen is pushing the First Lady’s food fascism even further–hosting a series of speakers to convince adults to trim down.
“We’re doing as much as we can at the schools,” said Mario Reyna, the physical education coordinator for McAllen schools. “We’ve got to focus on a lot of our adult populations in the community… We know it’s all about the adults because they’re the role models.”
Another liberal program run amok: in a true case of ends justifying the means, Michelle Obama and her friends at McAllen Independent School District would rather force adults to eat food to make sure kids have less choice in their food.
