First Lady Outraged Over Lunch Proposals
Washington, D.C. (CBS 2/FOX 28) - The First Lady is speaking out about a lunch program change that could affect your child's school lunch cost.
In 2010, laws were set for schools to have free and reduced lunch programs.
But last week, members of the House announced that they plan to draft new laws that would let schools that dont have the money for that program, opt out.
Mrs. Obama told school leaders and child nutrition experts that congress shouldn't play politics with children's health.
The First Lady says that the U.S. spends $190 billion on obesity related conditions in the U.S. compared to the ten billion it costs tax payers to serve healthy food in schools.
