“It is easier to change a man’s religion than his diet,” said Margaret Meade.
This wise observation didn’t stop Michelle Obama from trying to do just that while she was the First Lady.
In her typical elitist arrogance, she pushed the idea that the government knows what’s best for children more than their parents do.
Michelle’s solution to obesity in America was to starve school children…somehow at a higher monetary cost.
Her school lunch program had plans to include $19 bison steak as well as “tender baby arugula”, which goes for $20 per pound. This was the type of expensive fare that Michelle’s own children enjoyed at their private school.
But pictures posted to Twitter by frustrated public school students show that their lunches consisted of unappetizing slop that more closely resembled prison food.

The former First Lady’s Gulag inspired lunch menu was, and is, a costly failed venture.
But now, one of President Trump’s appointees is gearing up to end this travesty in our public schools once and for all.
From The Hill:
Newly minted Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is expected to unveil a new rule Monday aimed at giving schools more flexibility in meeting federal nutrition standards for school lunches.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced Friday that Perdue and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) will make the announcement at the Catoctin Elementary School in Leesburg, Va., where they are expected to eat lunch with the students.
