In the news this morning, the Trump Administration has changed nutritional standards aimed at making US school lunches healthier that were championed by former first lady Michelle Obama.  New Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has postponed reductions in sodium, relaxed requirements for whole grains, and allowed sweetened flavored milk back.  One in five US children is obese, according to US government statistics.  Perdue argued that If kids aren't eating the food, and it's ending up in the trash, they aren't getting any nutrition, thus undermining the intent of the program.
