So much has changed in the last two years, it’s easy to forget how bad some things were. Do you recall children in schools being told they could no longer have chocolate milk? That’s finally starting to end.

GREAT AGAIN: Schools bring back chocolate milk as Michelle O lunch rules eased
When former first lady Michelle Obama’s strict limitations on school lunches went into effect, students across the country dumped the unappetizing offerings in the garbage, a debacle that cost taxpayers billions in wasted food and lunchroom sales.
Students, parents, administrators and lunch staff pleaded with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to roll back the restrictions – specific limits on everything from total calories to fat, sugar, sodium, and whole grain content – and the government created various waivers to allow schools to serve students food they will actually eat.
Now, the Trump administration is scrapping the unnecessary bureaucracy altogether by making many of the changes permanent, effectively erasing rules that some believe unfairly targeted minorities and ignored cultural diversity…
The recent changes mean schools no longer need a special waiver from the government for only whole grain breads, and cafeterias can now serve low-fat chocolate milk without Uncle Sam’s permission. Students could only get fat-free flavored milk under previous rules.
The bottom line is that choices like these should be made by parents and not the government.
