Make Lunches Great Again: Trump Administration Rolls Back Obama Era School Lunch Restrictions

featuring Julie Gunlock

School lunches are about to be made great again.

Early in the first term of former President Barack Obama, several restrictions were placed on school lunches that strongly regulated what schools could serve students. This change was due in large part to the work of former first lady Michelle Obama who championed health and fitness as one of her initiatives.

Although the goal of these Obama era restrictions was to increase the health of American students, many schools found the regulations to be burdensome and ineffective.

Now, the United States Department of Agriculture, under theTrump administration, is pushing those restrictions to the side.

Julie Gunlock from the Independent Women’s Forum explained to Fox News why these regulations needed to go.
