First lady Michelle Obama is battling GOP congressional appropriators over possible changes to her effort to overhaul nutrition standards in the federal school lunch program. Roll Call’s Cady Zuvich reported on the recent “Kids’ State Dinner” at the White House, which touted the new USDA school nutrition standards:
“And while the vast majority of the schools are doing just fine with these new standards, those few complaining voices happen to be the loudest voices and they’re getting the most attention right now,” the first lady said at the third annual Kids’ State Dinner, slamming Congress for “undoing some of the progress” made.
The No. 1 resident of the White House might be a little bit counterproductive, too. CQ Roll Call Philip Brasher notes that President Barack Obama went “off message” at the school nutrition event with comments about his fondness for snacks and ice cream.
