While conservatives rightfully oppose federal education standards imposed on districts through the Common Core initiative, another form of bureaucracy is affecting students in an even more direct way. Nutrition regulations backed by Michelle Obama have created unappetizing — and costly — school lunch programs about which administrators, parents, and especially students have been vocal critics.

House Republicans will consider a bill this week designed to address these concerns by providing waivers to schools that can prove their food programs are losing money.

Though the initiative has already garnered praise from many groups opposed to the strict nutritional guidelines, leftist organizations like the Center for Science in the Public Interest remain indignant. Spokesperson Margo Wootan asserted:
