Should government keep nutrition requirements for school lunches?

First Lady Michelle Obama, who has been leading a fight against childhood obesity, is battling a bill passed by a House committee allowing schools to opt out of nutritional guidelines passed in 2012. She compared it to “a few years ago when Congress declared that the sauce on a slice of pizza should count as a vegetable in school lunches.” Republicans lawmakers say kids won’t eat the healthier foods provided to them, and the guidelines are too costly. Is it time to backtrack on school lunch requirements, or is this just a slap at the president?
