During her time as First Lady, Michelle Obama spent millions of tax dollars on fighting “childhood obesity.” That’s why it came as bad news to her when scientists revealed that her school lunches were actually far worse for children than she would like to believe.
Daily Mail reported that a new study has revealed that government-funded school lunches are only fueling the obesity epidemic.
“While well-intentioned, these government funded school meal programs that are aimed at making kids healthy are in fact making participating students more at risk of being overweight,” said Wen You, associate professor of agricultural and applied economics in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. “This study identifies the hardest battles in crafting policy to alleviate children in low-income populations being overweight.”
This study, which was published in the journal Health Economics, found that children are more likely to be overweight if they participate in both the school breakfast and lunch programs throughout their schooling years.
“We found that the longer children were in the programs, the higher their risk of being overweight,” You said. We also saw the most negative effect of the government-funded school meal programs in the South, the Northeast, and rural areas of the country. The question now is what to do in order to not just fill bellies, but make sure those children consume healthy and nutritious food – or at least not contribute to the obesity epidemic.”
“Policymakers need to consider all the aspects of school meal programs – from availability and affordability to nutritional content and tastiness,” You continued. “It is important to have extra policy support that will allow funding for programs such as chef-to-school and farm-to-school, as well as culinary training for cafeteria staff so kids actually enjoy eating what is ultimately prepared for them. This study also helps to identify the regions that are most in need and calls for targeted policy design.”
This comes after Mad World News reported that members of the media have been stunned to learn that Michelle has a “secret plan” to screw over America, and she’s cashing in on millions to make it happen.
While Barack has spent much of the last few months holed up in his Kalorama mansion, Michelle has had a jam-packed schedule traveling around the U.S. giving keynote addresses to huge liberal crowds, and the intensity of her schedule suggests her plans are much bigger than just making money.
Though Michelle makes less per speech than Barack, she has made far more than he has at this point based on the sheer number she has given. She started out at $200,000 per talk, but new reports indicate that she is now making up to $1 million per speech, depending on what it is. Since Michelle has been giving 5-6 speeches a month, this means she has been bringing in at least $1 million monthly.
Last month, Michelle flew alone to New York City, where she has her eye on a $10 million Manhattan townhouse. This was quite odd, since the Obamas already have homes in Chicago, California, Hawaii, and Washington, D.C. The mainstream media was also stunned recently when Michelle’s handlers forbid them from videoing any portion of her “Dream Force 2017” keynote address that she just delivered Tuesday morning.
