Michelle Obama is criticizing a Trump administration decision to delay federal rules aimed at making school lunches healthier.
She told an annual health conference in Washington that more nutritious school lunches are important since millions of kids eat federally subsidized school breakfast and lunch.
Without mentioning President Donald Trump, she said parents should stop and ‘think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap.
‘If somebody is doing that, they don’t care about your kid.’

‘Why would that be political?’
She went on to acknowledge she may be divisive, but the issue of kids’ health shouldn’t be.
‘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,’ she said.
In one of his first major actions, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said the department will delay an upcoming requirement to reduce the amount of sodium in school meals.
