Kyle Olson of EAGNews.org was on discussing those pesky new school nutrition standards that are driving Johnny not to eat, in school at least. It seems that Johnny wants potato chips not quinoa or jicama. But that doesn’t matter any more. Since the First Lady stuck her nose into matter by helping to get the new Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act passed in 2010, school lunches will never be the same, and neither will bake sales or any other type of food obtained on school grounds. The result has been completely predictable. The kids hate the healthy food and are doing everything they can to avoid it, from brown-bagging it, to going off campus to their favorite fast food outlet. No matter how you figure it, where there’s a will, there’s an unhealthy food choice to be had.
