The federal government is sending USDA officials to inspect for healthy meals being provided by the schools. But it doesn't stop there. Even lunches packed by parents and brought from home are being inspected to meet the USDA guidelines. The key word is "guidelines". Since when is a guideline MANDATORY!
If, as First Lady, she wants to promote healthy eating, I'm all for it. But mandating what parents pack their children for lunch?! This is fascistic. And having Michelle Obama telling us how we are to feed our kids is crap anyway. It's no secret that she goes out and hits the 1,700 calorie a meal burger and rib joints. Hey, more power to her if she wants to splurge. And, it's none of my business. Likewise, it's none of her, or any other bureaucrats', business what I pack my kids lunch box with. This creeping incrementalism by the government has got to be stopped!
