Middle School Bake Sale for WWII Vets Honor Flight Cancelled Due to Michelle Obama’s Healthy Food Mandate


Michelle Obama must be thrilled right now. Some middle school students had the audacity to sell cupcakes and cookies in an effort to send a World War II veteran on an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. last year, but they won’t be able to force kids to eat sugary snacks and get fat this year! Take that, obesity!

Federal nutrition standards that took effect this month limit the calories, sodium, fat and sugar content of food sold in schools as snacks and as fundraisers. “It’s going to be devastating,” Georgetown County School Superintendent Randy Dozier said.

Milkshake Mondays and Biscuit Fridays are out. The fate of candy sales to benefit the Calypso Gators steel drum band is uncertain. The guidelines apply to food sold on campus during school hours, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which created the standards. “Can I sell it after 2:30?” Carnahan wondered. “We’re kind of waiting on more information.”

The standards are part of the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act that has changed the menus in school cafeterias. “They changed the menu so that it isn’t as attractive to kids,” Dozier said. The district’s cafeteria managers have continued to come up with new recipes to make the healthier ingredients more appealing.

Maybe if they sold all of the cupcakes and cookies to Michelle Obama personally, she wouldn’t mind so much. Because while she has decided she can dictate what the rest of us can or can’t eat, she has no problem whatsoever cramming unhealthy food down her own piehole.
