If this is considered a ‘meal’, then let’s put Michelle on a diet and give her 3 such meals per day for one year.
And here are Michelle’s dogs …

– Salt “Black Markets” Emerge in Indiana School System as Students Seek to Avoid Bland Michelle Obama Lunches (Liberty Blitzkrieg, June 26, 2015):
Late last year, a very popular meme emerged related to public school students taking pictures of their meager and clearly unhealthy school lunch options and posting them on social media. I covered one example in the post: This is What School Lunch Looks Like in Chickasha, Oklahoma. Here’s a picture:
Not only are the portions criminally small, but apparently they are also so bland that students in an Indiana school district have developed a black market in salt and pepper in order to make the lunch edibles. You gotta hand it to these kids. Well done.
Kids in a school district in Indiana have created a black market in salt packets, which they trade and sell to help mitigate the disgusting taste of the so-called healthy lunches mandated under federal guidelines.
These guidelines were championed by First Lady Michelle Obama. Like so many other clumsy government attempts to make people healthier by forbidding the consumption of things they like, the initiative is a costly failure.
“Perhaps the most colorful example in my district is that students have been caught bringing–and even selling–salt, pepper, and sugar in school to add taste to perceived bland and tasteless cafeteria food,” said John S. Payne, the president of Blackford County School Board of Trustees in Hartford City, Indiana.
“This ‘contraband’ economy is just one example of many that reinforce the call for flexibility [with the rules],” he said.
This just goes to show that the human imagination and spirit always finds some way around bureaucratic idiocy.
