House panel votes to allow school districts to temporarily opt out of dietary rules

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2014/05/29/house-panel-votes-to-allow-school-districts-to-temporarily-opt-out-of-dietary-rules/?tid=pm_politics_pop

Despite White House pressure, the House Appropriations Committee voted Thursday to allow school districts to temporarily opt out of school dietary requirements championed by first lady Michelle Obama.

The party-line vote was hailed by an organization of school nutritionists and Republicans, but criticized by Democrats and health advocacy groups.

After more than 90 minutes of sharply partisan debate, the spending panel voted 29 to 22 to reject an amendment from Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.) to kill the GOP language, which would allow the Department of Agriculture to grant waivers to any school district that could show that their lunch programs operated at a net loss over six months.

Some school officials say the losses are tied to the imposition of stiff new rules requiring whole wheat products and fruits and vegetables as part of the school lunch program. Others heralded the new dietary standards for reducing obesity and changing the eating habits of young people for the better. Republicans, led by Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.), rejected claims that the waivers would gut the nutrition standards. Rather, he said they are necessary to give schools time to implement cumbersome changes.

Aderholt said he is open to modifying the language in the agriculture spending bill to make it clear that the waiver is only temporary. The Senate Appropriations Committee has approved a companion spending bill that does not permit waivers. It authorizes delays in some food rules and the study of others.

The White House has pushed hard against the waivers, saying they would roll back gains in child nutrition. On Tuesday, Michelle Obama hosted a discussion with nutritionists calling for a fight against the legislation, and she authored an op-ed piece opposing the waivers proposal in the New York Times.

The most powerful lobby on this topic, the School Nutrition Association, applauded the lawmakers' decision. "We appreciate the House Appropriations Committee’s support for this waiver to give temporary needed relief to some schools across the country,” said SNA President Leah Schmidt. “This will not halt the progress in school cafeterias; it is a temporary reprieve to allow schools to catch up."

She also called on the Agriculture Department to provide additional flexibility in implementing the law.

If USDA refuses to act, Schmidt said she hoped "Congress will stand up to protect America’s school meal programs from unintended negative consequences that could derail future successes in cafeterias nationwide.”

The kids just won't eat it, but now with the waiver hopefully they can revert back to normal food and revise the menu slowly giving more options, maybe a choice instead of one meal take it or leave it

can't understand why kids wouldn't' eat it. good  country fare, and even some cajun foods offered. So what do the kids want? take a survey probably junk food like burgers,fries and hotdogs.

They used to have those on the take out meal, remember we are dealing with high school kids not elementary kids and you are not going to force wheat anything on them if it hasn't been a normal part of their diet, they gave up on the wheat crust pizza , remember all this is made from scratch and with the limits on food by ounces now they would rather do without. Even the teachers ordered out from either the local chinese restaurant, Subway or a small restaurant that served all fresh made salads and breads.The menu is not appealing to many kids or staff

Potato Council Debunks First Lady's 'Science' Claims
May 29, 2014 - 3:13 PM

http://cnsnews.com/mrctv-blog/craig-bannister/potato-council-debunks-first-ladys-science-claims?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Marketing&utm_term=Facebook&utm_content=socialfow&utm_campaign=b-potato-council


Today, the National Potato Council praised the House for considering a bill to include the potato in its WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) food nutrition ("food stamp") program. The Council also debunked First Lady Michelle Obama's claims that including the potato would "override science" and that Americans are already eating enough of them.

The Potato Council notes that the First Lady's science is based on old data - not the latest government reports:

"Opponents of adding fresh potatoes to the WIC package are picking and choosing the science. Instead of relying on a 2005 report that looks at data from the mid-1990s, we argue that important federal nutrition programs should be based on the latest available science - in this case, USDA's own 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans."

"We appreciate the House and Senate members and staff who reviewed the science and the history of the WIC fruit and vegetable voucher program, and support a path forward that will allow WIC participants access to fresh potatoes."

"Based on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the most recent CDC consumption data, all Americans, including WIC participants, are under consuming nutritionally rich potatoes."

"Since potatoes are a recognized source of potassium, fiber, and folate - nutrients that are deficient in many WIC participants' diets - adding them to this important federal nutrition program is grounded in science. We are confident that allowing participants to purchase any fresh fruit or vegetable in the produce aisle reinforces WIC program's mission to provide both nutrition and nutrition education for low-income women, infants, and children who are found to be at risk. In addition, adding inexpensive, nutrient-dense potatoes to the basket will help WIC mothers stretch their WIC dollars and reduce confusion at checkout."

At issue is First Lady Michelle Obama's commentary in today's New York Times opposing the House initiative to add the potato to the WIC program - in which she says it would "override science" and claims women and children are getting enough potatoes:

"Right now, the House of Representatives is considering a bill to override science by mandating that white potatoes be included on the list of foods that women can purchase using WIC dollars. Now, there is nothing wrong with potatoes. The problem is that many women and children already consume enough potatoes and not enough of the nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables they need. That's why the Institute of Medicine - the nonpartisan, scientific body that advises on the standards for WIC - has said that potatoes should not be part of the WIC program."

But, as the Potato Council explains, the updated government data show women and children aren't consuming nearly enough potatoes:



Pres. Obama enjoys a french fried potato
"Unfortunately, women and children - including those in the WIC program - are consuming fewer starchy vegetables today, not more. The government's own data (Center for Disease Control's 2009-2010 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES)), show that women in the 19-30 age group consume only 2.4 cups of starchy vegetables per week, meeting less than half of the 2010 DGA-recommended intake (5 cups) for women with a 2,000 calorie diet. The diets of both male and female children also fall short of the 2010 DGA recommendations. For the 2-4 age group, girls consume 0.6 cups per week less than the maximum recommendations for starchy vegetable consumption, while boys consume 1.4 cups less."

The white potato is the only fresh fruit or vegetable excluded from the WIC program. Even such nutritionally-dubious items as sugar cane are allowed.

With Michelle about to lost face on her fiasco of a lunch program and a vote expected to grant states that showed a loss in revenue for 6 months on the school program a 1 year extension which is expected to pass, Obama is racing to Michelles defense and has said he will veto any delays in the nutrition program. A no brainier, gotta keep Michelle looking good even at the expense of the kids who detest this meal change, or the loss of revenue by school systems already over burdened in expenses. Can these people not find anything else better to worry with, how about over 100,000 illegal children being dumped at the border and being fed and housed on taxpayer money. Put them back on the bus they got off and send them back.
