Trump proposed scrapping Michelle Obama's healthy school lunch policy on her birthday

By

Friday was a big day in terms of birthdays, with both Betty White and Michelle Obama celebrating. But in an announcement that is far too timely to simply be a coincidence, President Donald Trump's administration announced on the same day that they are planning to roll-back school lunch regulations that Michelle Obama pushed for as First Lady. 

Michelle Obama was the driving force behind the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act which encouraged schools to provide healthier food options as part of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program, which subsidizes meals for 32 million students a day. 

She also planted a vegetable garden at the White House and launched the Let's Move! campaign, which aimed to lower childhood obesity by 5% by 2030 while encouraging kids to move and play.
