First lady Michelle Obama is striking back at House Republicans over their efforts to introduce flexibility to healthy school meal standards, saying any attempt to revise the current guidelines is “unacceptable.”
The standards originated in 2012 and were a major component of the first lady’s “Let’s Move!” campaign. They were the first major revision to the $11 billion school lunch program in 15 years. The rules require more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and set limits on sodium, sugar, and fat.
