    Michelle Obama's signature school lunch program has been unpopular since it first went into effect, two years ago, with students eschewing the "worse-tasting, smaller-sized and higher-priced" fare, and instead bringing their own "back alley meals", as Rush joked - meals like "Flaming Hot Cheetos and soda."

    "We're eating more junk food, now, than last year", a student from the Los Angeles Unified School District explained in December of 2011.

    Last year, Kansas teachers and students frustrated with the school lunch guidelines, produced a protest video to illustrate their plight:

    Now school districts are starting to dump the expensive and unpopular program in favor of something more cost effective that kids will actually eat.

    Could someone explain why schools adopt these reduced calorie lunch menus? It's not compulsory to do so, is it? I suppose there may be some federal funding tied to it but don't local school districts have the authority to set their own menus independent of the federal government?
