Michelle Obama new food rule casuality: Cap’n Crunch

Why Michelle Obama’s ideas can’t first be applied to food stamp recipients

I’ll never understand. One more regulation got passed in government telling Americans what they can eat. Here’s more from FreeBeacon.com:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a final rule Monday that will affect more than 3 million kids in daycare centers across the country. The regulation will only allow daycare centers to serve juice once a day, will ban fried foods, and encourages centers to not add honey to a child’s yogurt.

The regulation is a result of the 2010 law aimed at school lunches, a top priority of Mrs. Obama’s Let’s Move anti-obesity initiative. The government hopes the new rule will “help children build healthy habits.”

The final rule will apply to participating organizations in USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program, which reimburses centers for meals and snacks. Over 3.3 million children and 120,000 adults participate in the program every day.

Breakfast cereals can “contain no more than 6 grams of sugar per dry ounce,” according to the regulation. The sugar limit means no Lucky Charms, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Cap’n Crunch, or Frosted Flakes.
