First lady Michelle Obama has wasted a lot amount of her time in the White House combating childhood obesity. America’s children have been forced to eat cardboard and pig slop because she says it’s healthy. Well, she’s dead wrong.
The truth is that she has wasted millions of taxpayer dollars on failed programs much like her husband.
And the truth is that scientific evidence is suggesting that her crappy school lunches are far worse for children than she would like to believe.
In fact, the results of a recent Virginia Tech study offer critics new ammunition by suggesting school lunches might be CAUSING the very problem Obama has been fighting. OBESITY!
Wen You of the Virginia Tech College of Agriculture and Life Sciences explained that “While well-intentioned, these government funded school meal programs that are aimed at making kids healthy are in fact making participating students more at risk of being overweight.”
“Research indicated that the longer children were in such programs, the higher their risk of being overweight,” You said. “The most negative effect of government meal programs were in the south, northeast, and rural areas of the country.”
Researchers studied over 21,000 students nationwide from kindergarten through eighth grade.
Kim Smith at Conservative Tribune reports that children who participated in a school meal program were more likely to be overweight, and children who didn’t participate were less likely to be overweight. Clearly, it’s time for the government to stay out of areas it doesn’t belong — like education and nutrition.
“It’s potentially troubling since even the nutritional targets of previous standards were not being met satisfactorily prior to this new legislation, and now there are potentially millions more kids who could be affected by accessing free school meals,” You said.
Troubling and embarrassing.
Obama’s school meal programs is turning out just like every other Democrat program that “intends” to make things better — it is actually making things worse.
This shouldn’t be too surprising. Obama has no formal education or certification in nutrition. It would appear her only interest in an effort to make Americans healthy is the excuse to waste millions of dollars.
So this is all a big waste of money at the expense of all of us taxpayers to make the Queen appear relevant, which she isn’t. She never will be.
Sure, she’s the first black transsexual first lady but that’s about it.
So sorry Queen Obama but your government mandated (under the threat of extortion) lunches SUCK! You would never eat that garbage and you would NEVER feed that slop to your adopted daughters. Nice try, now get lost and take your Marxist husband with you…
