    When you starve kids, sure they will lose weight.

    That's a no brainer.

    oh gawd you liberals worshipping YOUR MASTERS...it's creepy and pretty damn sick

    now as for Obesity going down, if it is it isn't because some UNELECTED person who has no right legislating anything has turned schools into little concentration camps and FORCING FOOD ON YOUR CHILDREN.AND IF THEY ARE weight it's because of smaller portion, and they are THROWING AWAY the foods being FORCED ON THEM.. I worked in a school until recently and believe me the children aren't happy campers...they are hunger at school so that doesn't help their attitudes and basically they are starving your children with their pie in the sky idiot ideas..

    Now go kiss the Mabells picture or something before you cream your jeans

    Well the original initiative began in 2004. Gee, who was President then?

    :)

    "The HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) is a voluntary initiative established in 2004 to recognize those schools participating in the National School Lunch Program that have created healthier school environments through promotion of nutrition and physical activity.

    In February 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama introduced Let's Move!, incorporating the HealthierUS School Challenge into her campaign to raise a healthier generation of kids. At the time, monetary incentive awards became available for each HUSSC award level: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Gold Award of Distinction.

    Obesity is dropping because of efforts on the state level, not because of Michelle Obama. That is why some states are having better success than others. Some states have had no change at all, including blue states.

    States have a bigger impact on what goes in school lunches than Mrs. Obama does.

    you just don't get it------------anything positive that happened since 08 is because of something obama did, anything negative is because of something bush did.

    try it

    obama----good

    bush----bad

    the libtardians have that drummed into them by their handlers every day.

    What on earth are you arguing? Hungry kids makes good politics? Non obese kids are being intentionally fattened up? Giving food to children is bad for your political position?

    Should we all become Conservatives if for any other reason but to assuage guilt over having malnutrition among our children and liking it because it's somehow politically expedient? What are family values?

    I never said that. But if you think its good no matter who does it, why didn't you credit Bush for starting it and Michelle for following up on it?

    Answer: because you are a disengenuous partisan hack.

    And the hypocritical little automatons LOVED it when it was coming from their idol, Schwarzenegger.

    Thank Your Mrs. Obama and just ignore the fat idiots on the right.

    well, to be honest I don't see any reason why the food provided at schools by a taxpayer should not be mandated by the standards issued by a taxpayer. You want to eat something else - feel free to bring your own.

    If it is provided by the government it can be mandated by the government.

    And I would say it is LOOOOOONG overdue.

    Too bad we can not ban buying unhealthy items by the food-stamps/welfare money.
    Yet.

    I don't care whether Bush or Obama caused the decrease in childhood obesity. I applaud them both on their efforts. Any administration has to recognize that an obese population is less productive for the state. And any intelligent population has to recognize that obesity is counterproductive to resisting state control. I see it as a win/win for both sides. No need to bring partisan politics into it.
