Michelle Obama attacks Trump school meals policy

= 130

Michelle Obama has launched a fierce defence of the healthy eating initiatives she championed as first lady.

At a public health summit in Washington, she hit back after the Trump administration loosened nutritional standards aimed at making US school lunches healthier.

“Think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap,” she said.

One in five American children is obese, government figures show.

In thinly-veiled criticism of the policies of the new administration, Mrs Obama told the audience: “This is where you really have to look at motives, you know.

“You have to stop and think, why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you? And why is that a partisan issue? Why would that be political? What is going on?”

She added: “Take me out of the equation – like me or don’t like me. But think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap.

“Why would you celebrate that? Why would you sit idly and be okay with that? Because here’s the secret: If someone is doing that, they don’t care about your kid.”
