Michelle Obama and the Cupcake Police Put an End to School Fundraiser Bake Sales

 

 Could Liberals just stay the hell out of our lives?

Now bake sales for school fundraiser are public enemy number one for liberals. Thanks to the  2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by first lady Michelle Obama, school kids will no longer be able to have cupcake bake sales to raise money. Thanks Michelle, because apples, celery and carrot sticks are not quite the money makers as brownies, cookies and cupcakes. So what does Michelle Obama have against school children raising money for school trips or band and athletic equipment?

Good grief, what ever happened to the America I grew up in where kids could have a bake sale to raise money for their class trip right after playing a game of dodge-ball?

Maybe Michelle should start with you own husband first?

But the sales won’t be so sweet starting this fall. Campus bake sales—a mainstay of school fundraisers—are going on a diet. A federal law that aims to curb childhood obesity means that, in dozens of states, bake sales must adhere to nutrition requirements that could replace cupcakes and brownies with fruit cups and granola bars.

Jeff Ellsworth, principal of the kindergarten through eighth-grade school in Chapman, Neb., isn’t quite sure how to break the news to the kids. “The chocolate bars are a big seller,” said Mr. Ellsworth.

The restrictions that took effect in July stem from the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by first lady Michelle Obama and her “Let’s Move!” campaign. The law overhauled nutrition standards affecting more than 30 million children. Among the changes: fatty french fries were out, while baked sweet potato fries were deemed to be fine.

The law also required the U.S. Department of Agriculture to set standards for all food and beverages sold during the school day, which includes vending machines, snack carts and daytime fundraisers. It allowed for “infrequent” fundraisers, and states were allowed to decide how many bake sales they would have that didn’t meet nutrition standards.

      This is just one of the reasons that the federal government should not have their fingers in education. Education should be under state and local control and as little state control as possible.

      Citizens in a community are quite capable of making quality decisions about their school systems.

      michelle, buffalo butt and thunder thighs….

      Eating a cupcake is not going to make you obese, this has been a tradition for years, raising monies for school needs. A bake sale won’t make you fat but fast foods will. Her project failed in the schools because the food she demanded was gross. It was garbage and that’s what the kids did with it.

      Doesn’t she have anything better to do!!!! Outside of lavish vacations and outrageous clothing expenditure’s. Visiting an extremely poor school and wearing $500.00 gym shoes. black trash has done nothing to help the black people of America, nor the white. But let’s help the illegal immigrants, such as obama’s aunt and cousin and maybe many others. they stink!!!!

      love your comments on all points Kashakemon and totally agree with you!!! wonder if her kids get cake for their birthdays? I cannot stand this president and I am not racist… always loved Collin Powell, Condi Rice and Dr. Ben Carson! Also agree with you Texas Grandfather… should be state control

      I think you forgot to mention the fact that it is up to the states to set how many bakes sales (that allow sweet treats) schools may have in a year.
