The faults in the Obama lunch plan

The faults in the Obama lunch plan

Taha Khan, an 18 years old student at the New Paltz High School, expressed her disappointment with the new federal standards set for the school lunch. The school wanted to be reimbursed for the meals and it should also include serving of either fruits or vegetables. Breads consist of whole grains and have low fat content.  The school newspaper published the complaints of the students and passed a resolution that criticized the whole program for making students waste food and avoid paying tax.


The federal had made such provision to encourage people to have a healthy living. However, some consequences that it had to face were bad. The whole controversy continues to revolve around the Healthy Free Kid Act that was championed by Mrs. Obama to make efforts for reducing obesity in children. This accounts for wastage of food, costs and also leads to additional paper work. The system is properly tracked and reported on daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. 


The staffs were trained and full analysis was made on the meals and nutritional information was given to the school authorities so that the health has been given more importance. It has also been revealed that the program doesn’t work properly in poorer districts where students can’t afford best nutritional food at home. About 45 states including New York did not allow schools to ask for whole grains exemption. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 325 schools out of 19721 organisations had requested for exemption. About 281 requests for exemption were passed by the organisation.
