It’s well known by now that First Lady Michelle Obama has long campaigned for “healthier” food choices in America’s schools. Out with the “bad”, in with the “good” — at least good in her opinion. And a lot of parents as well as nutritionists support the “Lunch Lady’s” effort to reduce kids’ sugar and fat intake. However…
There is significant push-back in many places. From kids who are unhappy. Parents who don’t like the dictates. School districts that find they’re throwing out tons of “healthy” but uneaten food.
And as students all over America return to their classrooms, a new twitter hashtag — #BringBackOurSnacks — is exploding with tasty comments about empty vending machines and unwelcome food menu selections. Here are just a few of the more choice tweets:
