LYNNWOOD, Wash. – Michelle Obama’s 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 district’s website states.

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?

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.

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.
