First lady Michelle Obama hosted a discussion with school leaders on Tuesday afternoon at the White House, seeking allies in her fight against GOP legislation that would loosen school meal nutrition rules.

Fox News reports:

…some schools have complained the rules are too restrictive and costly — and House Republicans have a new bill aimed at addressing those concerns. An agriculture spending bill approved by a House subcommittee last week would allow schools to waive the standards if they have a net loss on school food programs for a six-month period.

While many schools have had success putting the rules in place, others have said they are too restrictive and costly. Schools pushing for changes say limits on sodium and requirements for more whole grains are particularly challenging, while some school officials say kids are throwing away fruits and vegetables that are required.

The first lady isn’t giving up on her childhood fitness movement without a fight.
