Chicken Wings and Chips for Lunch at Sidwell Friends

By J. Christian Adams, PJmedia, October 28, 2014

While Michelle Obama's skimpy school lunch mandates have been widely rejected by students and schools, the elite private school attended by both Obama daughters will be serving chicken wings and potato chips on Wednesday.

Sidwell Friends is the elite private school with a $36,264 tuition per child where President Obama sent his daughters instead of Cardozo high school, a government-run school in Washington, D.C.

After Wednesday's chicken wings, on Thursday Obama's daughters can get a Cuban sandwich. Pasco County Schools in Florida had to eliminate Cuban sandwiches because they violated Michelle Obama's lunch standards.

Land O' Lakes High had gone one better, pressing its own Cuban sandwiches that definitely exceed the calorie limits, she said.

"No way can we fit Cubans on the menu any more," Hedine said.

Next week, students at Sidwell Friends can enjoy Philly Cheese Steaks; and they will have meatball submarines the following week. Veterans Day is not a holiday at Sidwell Friends, and beef nachos are on the menu. Nachos, wings, chips and cheesesteaks – lunch fare most American kids can only dream about now.

  • Middle School: $36,264 (includes hot lunch) + $440 (txtbooks and laptop)
