The rolling back of school lunch regs championed by former First Lady Michelle Obama includes a change in what kinds of milk is allowed:
Chocolate milk with 1% fat will soon be back on public school lunch menus as Trump administration eases nutritional standards put in place under President Obama. https://t.co/pKrHJ94sW8

Vox is among the alarmed by all that’s going on:
Apparently "making school meals great again" means relaxing nutrition standards for federally subsidized school lunch programs. https://t.co/OeyQ0Y82pk

Ha! That’s not far from what happened.
Omg the replies act as if Trump is mandating rat poison be used in school lunches https://t.co/SYxuuaFFu9

BREAKING: Trump injecting fat into your kids' veins.
Don't believe me? Check out the rabid responses to this. https://t.co/0NLM8Z8giy

No kidding! The triggering ran deep:
This dude’ll fuck over anyone and everyone if it means he can chip away at the legacy of the first black president. https://t.co/F6pse9W0VD

I was missing all the fat kids with tooth decay in school. This is good news. We don't want our children to be healthy when they can have fast food in school like the President does in Airforce one.

It’s more than chocolate milk. It’s the concept of going back on progress we worked so so so hard to make. Nutrition should be NOTHING but progressive. We should not be going backwards.

Another way to cancel an Obama initiative. This time, Michelle's effort to reduce childhood obesity/improve wellness. Sad

This stinks for the health of our kids.

I honestly cannot believe his administration is now going after kids nutrition. It’s so wrong on so many levels. He wants to take the country back 50 years. It’s Embarrassing. https://t.co/kfCqEmzFDf

I will never understand how it is too challenging to order nonfat flavored milk but ordering 1% flavored milk is fine. This is a senseless revision of a rule that was already working. https://t.co/TjV2lCL5Dn

Chocolate milk OK, chocolate colored people not so much.

But of course not everybody agreed that the Trump administration’s move on school lunches is horrible:

When what your child has to eat at school depends on who's President, you have too much federal government.

Probably one of the greatest things the Trump adminstration will do..Obama killed school lunch https://t.co/KNZE9SpRtz

In 2015, Michelle Obama said kids would “eventually” embrace her school lunch guidelines. That never happened.
