First Lady Michelle Obama can be commended for her focus on what’s good for the diet of America’s youth. Ms. Obama couldn’t be more correct, our children’s diet needs improving and physical activity is necessary for good health. But what is the reality of her “Let’s Move” program?
Seems like many public school children are far from impressed with what it has meant to their school lunches. They have been using #ThanksMichelle and are Tweeting photos of their lunches. Lunches that are winding up in the trash can more than ever.
As with so many government-run programs, the intention may be good but the execution may leave much to be desired. From tales from the school cafeterias around the country what has been directed from Washington is not being well received and may be a bigger waste of money and food than the effort is worth. I don’t know if you can trust school children to know what is best for themselves but evidently they do know what they don’t like to have shoved down their throats even at their young age.
