CNN OutFront- Lawmaker: Healthy lunch rules ‘go beyond reason’

From CNN OutFront- May 28- “It’s rare that the first lady gets publicly involved in a political fight. But she has some major beef with House Republicans who want to enable schools to opt out of the nutrition standards that the first lady fought for.

“‘The last thing we can afford to do right now is play politics with our kids’ health,’ she said. ‘Now is not the time to roll back everything that we have worked for. Our kids deserve so much better than that.’

“Republican Congressman Robert Aderholt– He’s backing the bill that would let cash-strapped schools opt out of the nutrition regulations.”
