New Federal Mandated Skimpy Lunch Program Upsets Students “One Size Fits All” Forces A Squeeze

September 25, 2012

In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations. Despite the fact that the new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, it’s not pleasing students.

Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market – for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze.

One size fits all federal program forces a squeeze.
