Trump Administration Cancels Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Legacy

(Last Updated On: May 6, 2017)

The nutritional Standards set by the Obama administration has been cancelled by an interim rule unveiled on Monday by the Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue. In 2010, President Barrack Obama signed The Healthy Kids, Hunger-Free Kids Act into law alongside part of the former first lady’s Let’s Move Campaign, increased nutrition standards. The lunch legacy tasked all schools to offer students both fruits and vegetables everyday, to increase their offerings of whole grain foods, to offer only fat-free or low-fat milk, to limit calories based on the age of children and to reduce the amount of saturated fat, trans fats and sodium offered.

According to Sonny Perdue, who was sworn into office just last week, “We’ve been hearing from a lot of parents, students and food service professionals about how we can do better in this role…. We all know that meals can’t be nutritious if they aren’t consumed and if they’re put in the trash…. The thing that I hear the most – and I can identify this because I wouldn’t be as big today as I was without chocolate milk – is allowing 1 percent flavored milk in school lunches…. We have to balance nutrition with the palatability. Kids are pretty outspoken with what they want to eat and what they don’t and that’s what we need to balance.”

Perdue made this know when he had a lunch with students and Senator Pat Roberts in an elementary school in Leesburg, Virginia.
