New USDA Secretary Announces Rollback of Obama-Era Nutrition Standards for School Lunches


Sonny Perdue is a douche

USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue chooses profits over kids' nourishment

Yeah, great idea. Let's leave school lunch programs to the students, food service providers (i.e., grifters), and school admins.

They OBVIOUSLY know nutrition's role in development. Fuck!

Rhetorical question: Is there anything about Donald Trump's administration that isn't focuses solely on business profit? Anything?

The USDA said it will roll back some of the guidelines for healthy school lunches adopted at the urging of former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Perdue, who became head of the agency last week, announced he would be relaxing guidelines and providing greater flexibility in nutrition requirements for schools’ meal programs.

“This announcement is the result of years of feedback from students, schools and food service experts about the challenges they are facing in meeting the final regulations for school meals,” Perdue said during a visit to Catoctin Elementary School in Leesburg, VA.

Why Your ‘Organic’ Milk May Not Be Organic

I fucking told you!

That little “organic” label you see in the supermarkets is the best marketing ever. It makes people buy your shit, at double the price.

Consumers can pay double for that label. But critics say big farms can fall short of standards.
