"Michelle Obama's School Lunch Program Based on Junk Science"
This article contains much more than Michelle Obama's involvement...
On the PJmedia website, Rand Simberg writes the government's involvement:
"Buried deep in the ObamaCare law, the gift from the Democrats to the nation that keeps on giving, chain restaurants are required to start labeling calories on all of their menu items. The law applies to vending-machine items as well. It’s proven to be a nightmare for small business and franchises, adding cost (which will have to be passed on to the diner, if they choose to pay it). In the case of things like 'order your own' sandwiches or pizza, it is almost impossible to implement. As with much of the poorly written misbegotten law, it is unclear whether it applies to things like food trucks, or what the penalty is for non-compliance. Despite the uncertainty, overall cost has been estimated to be half a billion dollars, which will be 'eaten' by consumers."
