LYNNWOOD, Wash. Michelle Obamas national school lunch overhaul is getting a little ridiculous.
The First Lady worked with federal bureaucrats to strictly limit what types of foods can be served in school cafeterias across the country in an effort to fight childhood obesity. The federal regulations on meat, vegetables, salt, and other aspects of the school lunch has been met with staunch indignation from students who have either trashed their mandatory fruit and vegetables or opted not to eat lunch at all.
Now, the Edmonds School District in Washington state and others are cracking down on birthday cupcakes and other sugary snacks students bring from home under a directive from the federal lunch police, according to news reports.
Birthday parties in classrooms may be celebrated with non-food treats and favors for students. No food is allowed as part of a birthday celebration, according to a new Edmonds School District policy tied to the federal lunch rules, according to The Herald.
Appropriate alternatives to food that may be shared on special occasions can be within the procedures, the districts website states.

Michelle Obama, the Cupcake Thief.
So we filled up the hog trough.
Only makes sense. After all she is married to a turd burglar
I don’t recall Moochelle running/winning an election as a rep in the House where all the laws are supposed to be started.
I also don’t recall any announcement that Moochelle was hired by the Fed Reg as an employee. What am I missing here besides Marxism?
Get FEDGOV out of K-12
Immediately and permanently.
don’t need kids bringing in pot cupcakes
She doesn’t have any business injecting herself into public school lunch programs, particularly since her kids go to a private school where they get fine-dining and armed guards.
The most annoying president’s wife ever should butt out. She’s a pain.
Wait til she’s the junior senator from Illinois in Jan 2017.
Dang. Now even the first lady can just make up rules and idiots follow them.
Send you kid there with bran muffins topped with edible shaving cream.
A healthy B-day snack for the Libtard’s childrens...
I was thinking the same thing.
Who the hell does this cow think she is to tell us what to eat?
I’m counting the days when they’re exposed, convicted and jailed.
Haha, that picture...don’t think she could safely eat school lunch with the students again, they’d make her wear what she makes them eat.
If I were one of the parents, I’d print up some little flyers for my kid to give out to any or all of his classmates to meet before or after school somewhere, where he would hand out my home-baked cupcakes. Screw these bureaucrats.
“non-food treats” you bet!
Misery for all says the Mooch.
By what authority can she or the feds for that matter, dictate what kids can bring from home and eat at school?
Homemade cupcakes are illegal now?
I’ve had enough of this totalitarian crap. Can we send the Obamas and Bloomberg to North Korea where they belong?
The ceremonial sharing of food has been an important feature of all cultures, everywhere, at all times. It’s an important and proven way of bonding those who participate in the sharing. That’s why we have State Dinners, Thanksgiving dinners ... and elementary-school birthday parties with cupcakes. There simply aren’t any meaningful substitutes.
All your birthday cupcakes belong to us
Very sad that people still send their precious children to public schools.
WTH are non-food treats anyhow? Stealing candy from a baby was a cliche for someone being as depraved as possible, and this is pretty much the same thing.
Sorry, no birthday cake for you kid, here have a cigar!
No Cake For You!
Crack cupcakes, more likely. Or at least that’s what’s on Obama’s dessert menu.
Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we are going to have to change our traditions, our history.
We're going to have to move into a different place as a nation to provide the kind of future we all want desperately for our children.

Speech in San Juan Puerto Rico
One day soon I have to dig up some internet references to black nationalism and diet. Their ideology eschews any kind of food that they believe plantation owners fed to slaves, which are therefore considered to be “slave food”.
On top of that, black nationalist mythology insists that the white devils fed certain types of food to blacks and Native Americans to make them lazy, fat, slow, and submissive. In other words, more docile and easy to control.
Something tells me Moochelle’s compulsive nitpicking about diet and school menus comes from those ideological roots of white hatred.
You should see the charts for obesity vs. race. White kids aren’t exactly the problem, it’s low income minorities who are getting fat on food stamps and other subsidies.
(I don’t know how to post images yet otherwise I would)
You wanna see a ban? Try banning birthday cupcakes at Michelle’s birthday party and see what sort of “ban” comes down on you!
