School children in Elyria, Ohio are mourning the demise of a 40-year tradition – the loss of their beloved pink cookie. The fabled cookie, long served in local school cafeterias, was done in by a pound of butter, six cups of powdered sugar and the Obama administration’s food police.

“It no longer meets the national school lunch program guidelines for snacks,” said Amy Higgins, the spokesperson for Elyria City Schools. “It has too many calories.”

Feds ban school

Got any facts to back that up, or this is just more right-wing paranoia?

Amazing how many pictures are out there of the First Lady and The President eating ^^......what is up with that!

I personally would avoid pictures of eating if I was pushing people not to eat.

Food Police and no time for ISIS.

ISIS is not our problem, and the whole food thing is the First Lady's project, not the President's.

Meh, food coloring isn't good for kids anyway, not to mention all the sugar. But this choice should have been made by the local school board and not the Feds.

If we need to pay for health care for the people that get sick as a result they are not taking personality responsibility for their health decisions.

If you want to be a fat ass, it is your responsibility to pay for that decision. If you are not willing to do so then the tax payer gets a say.

I love how we drug test for welfare recipients because if we pay we get a say, but eating terrible food is a personal choice.

Absolutely. Seven-year-olds should be held responsible for their actions in the cafeteria. If they give themselves diabetes, they deserve it! Let them serve as an example for other kids to learn from.
