"We believe that proper food nutrition and meal portion guidelines are best decided at a local level," said Rick Petfalski, School Board president for the Muskego-Norway School District.And see if you believe this one…
The Central High School District of Westosha also decided to leave the lunch program this spring. "We're not trying to fatten up our kids," district's administrator, Scott Pierce, said "We're trying to give them food they like."
Sounds like a lot of sugary, fatty, salty foods to me. Have at it.
This has nothing to do with kids not eating their food and throwing it away, they can go hungry just so long, nope this has more to do with politics and the visceral hatred for Obama...Michelle specifically. This is a national movement encouraged by Republicans who blame overreach and big government for making our kids healthier. The horror.
Even worse, Scott Walker could care less about what our kids eat, because we've got no standards whatsoever:
Wisconsin is one of only 12 states that have not adopted any nutrition standard for its schools on a state-level basis.But wait a minute, Republican legislators passed a bill banning junk food from the food stamp program. They said it was a waste of taxpayer money. Yet it's okay to feed out kids this stuff?
Rick Petfalski, School Board president for the Muskego-Norway School District: “By leaving the program we will not be required to follow these onerous guidelines, pushed by and large by Michelle Obama, who last I checked has been elected by no one.”
