Michelle Obama might be out of the White House, but that doesn't mean she's done being a champion for the health of American kids. As first lady, she spent eight years working on her "Let's Move" initiative to combat childhood obesity.
The Trump administration recently announced plans to roll back school lunch standards, with U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue promising earlier this month to "make school lunches great again."
Friday, at the Partnership for Healthier America Summit in Washington, D.C., Obama managed to expertly call out the decision without mentioning Perdue or Donald Trump by name, Mashable reports.
"Stop and think," she said to parents at the event, "'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?'"
Perdue's plan would put control over whole grains, sodium, and types of milk used in lunches back at the local level, which would make enforcing nutritional standards more difficult.
"Moms, think about this. I don't care what state you live in, take me out of the equation, like me, don't like me, but think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap," Obama said.
