Please see statement below:

"There is no need to delay health lunch initiative" says global parenting expert Jo Frost.

"Excuses, excuses. The kids are having temper tantrums about not wanting to eat the healthy food and it looks like some schools and politicians across the USA are having defiant temper tantrums too!... I have never heard such utter absurdity for some to ask giving schools a year waiver... for what exactly??…. A year waiver before getting kids healthy and to hold off fighting disease and obesity? The standards are provided based on what these kids 'Need' not 'Want' more of, in their nutritious food plan during school hours. These food standards in schools will ultimately set the example alongside teaching parents in family life to become healthier and lower Americas child obesity epidemic. As a woman who for the last 10 years has been embraced by the American family, has worked alongside families, sat in the homes and kitchens of over 47 states of your great country, if I gave every family a waiver for a year based on the Antisocial and out of control behavior their children showed, or the poor decisions that were made because of parents choices regarding Food and Health, where do you honestly think those families would be now?

Serious situations call for serious action. Those fighting this healthy change are behaving like oppositional defiant children and are ultimately giving up on our children because right now they are resisting the change,complaining about the food!

Someone needs to be the adult here, ALL schools should be working as a team with the government like great parents working together making it a priority doing what is morally right by these children.

I applaud Michelle Obama and the White House for beginning this initiative and hope they stand their ground like we all have to do in our conviction to see ever lasting change."
