Fox Nation is so desperate to smear President Obama and his wife that they've posted a misleading, if not downright erroneous, headline about how American kids are "starving" because of school menus that have been revamped in order to ensure proper nutrition and cut down on childhood obesity. But in the nation of Fox, freedom's just another word for kids being able to stuff as much crap down their gullets as possible which results in an obesity rate of 17% among American youth. And who cares about rising health care costs due to things like diabetes and heart problems among our youth who are entitled to their fatty food. And while the opponents of good nutrition are, one suspects, those who worship the flag and our military, our military leaders want less junk food in the schools because the military, for obvious reasons, isn't interested in recruiting fat, unhealthy young adults. (You won't see that on Fox Nation). But Fox Nation says that Michelle Obama's advocacy for good nutrition is "starving"America's kids and Fox Nation is "fair & balanced," so it must be true. Ya think?
The Fox Nation thread is titled, "Students Starving From Michelle Obama Rules Told to Snack More." It links to an ABC News (ewww, librul media) article which reports that some high school kids are whining about how hungry they are because of the new, improved meals, which are part of legislation passed by the US Congress - not rules set up by Michelle Obama who has and continues to advocate for better nutrition for kids, especially in the public schools. To their complaint, Secretary of Agriculture commented that they should have nutritious snacks to supplement the school meals. He is working with school districts so that they can develop better snacks as well as encouraging parents to pack good snacks at home. But here are the downright un-American regulations:
"Cafeterias are required to serve twice as many fruits and vegetables while limiting proteins and carbohydrates. For an average high school student, that means two baked fish nuggets, a cup of vegetables, half a cup of mashed potatoes, one whole grain roll and 8 ounces of fat free milk is the fuel that served to get them through their last four hours of classes."
But for American kids, weaned on supersized greasy ersatz food, an 850 calorie lunch is "starvation." And Fox Nation has their ample backsides!
