Public School Kids Eat Slop While Obama's Daughters Live High Off The Land

Are wealthy politicians living high off the land and school districts taking in extra federal funds while American children suffer?

Most kids across the United States attend public school, however Barack and Michelle Obama’s daughters attend the swank and private Sidwell Friends School in Washington DC where the tuition for each student is $36,264 a year and includes a hot lunch.

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act  bill was introduced in the US Senate by Blanche Lincoln (D), Chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee. It was later approved by the Senate by unanimous voice vote on August 5, 2010. In the U.S. House of Representatives The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act passed with 247 Democrats and 17 Republicans voting for, and 4 Democrats and 153 Republicans voting against it

President Barack Obama signed the bill into law on December 13, 2010. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act is expected took effect in 2014.  New York Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand pushed for Greek yogurt to be included in the regulations determining acceptable proteins to be served at school. The Chobani yogurt company is located in Chenango County, New York.

Under the complex legislation, which has long been a signature issue for the first lady, participating schools take federal money but must stringently limit the number of calories and the amount of sugar, fat and sodium in every morsel of food sold at schools. Also, in what presumably falls outside the hunger-free aspect of the act, there are calorie caps.

Here is what the Obama’s daughters ate earlier this week for their school lunch:

Potato Sausage Soup; Firecracker Slaw; California Chef’s Salad; All Natural Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings; Sweet Potato Black Bean Bake; Sautéed Local Greens; Gemelli Alfredo; Sliced Pineapple

Below is what public school student ate this week.  Does this seem right?
