Perhaps now is the time to finally remind our former First Lady why her much publicized food program is going down in flames, much like her husband's health care debacle, the basics were ignored.

In Michelle’s case, she was apparently too preoccupied with the politics of the program rather than understanding the basic human needs of children, in that there are 7-senses which all of us use daily and take for granted, however without anyone of them, we’ll soon take notice and begin to miss them.

Just imagine a day without one of those 7-senses, “sight, smell, touch, taste, hearing, intuition,” and finally “equilibrium.”

Moreover, something as exact as instituting a food program within our public school system should first adhere to the obvious, “food should taste” good.” The rest is simply political blather which obviously Michelle paid more attention too, then actually constructing a food program that children would enjoy eating.

Which is now having a devastating effect across school cafeteria’s all over the country, to where there isn’t enough money to employ workers or keep many of those lunch rooms open very long, without drastically changing the menu.

Faced with the fact that students will not buy lunches low in sodium and sugar and the potential of school cafeteria’s going out of business the nation's 54,000 school cafeteria workers are reaching out to President Trump and his administration urging him to scrub the food program pushed by the former First Lady.

The issue has galvanized the School Nutrition Association on behalf of the cafeteria workers to lobby the president, in providing a less rigid food program, and one that combines nutrition with food that tastes good.

“Overly prescriptive regulations have resulted in unintended consequences, including reduced student lunch participation, higher costs and food waste. Federal nutrition standards should be modified to help school menu planners manage these challenges and prepare nutritious meals that appeal to diverse student tastes,” a new policy paper from the association said.

Do you think Michelle Obama's ill-fated school lunch initiative is best left behind as a bad memory?
