850 calories school lunch argument is right-wing political talking point
If you’ve paid attention to the coverage of videos from high school students, you would think that most kids are starving at school, thanks to Michelle Obama.
Unfortunately for them, when you break down the numbers, the kids aren’t getting a significant difference in calories. They may not like the new food, but that complaint would sound bad from a PR standpoint.
The 850 calories approach has a simple PR-friendly take. Too bad the facts don’t back up the hype.
