Michelle Obama Kicks Instant Macaroni and Cheese out of the White House
Given the choice between one of Michelle Obama’s public school lunches or cheap macaroni and cheese, I know what I’d pick.

Michelle O: ‘Cheese Dust Is Not Food’
First Lady Michelle Obama is going after boxed mac and cheese, saying, “Cheese dust is not food.”
It was former White House Chef Sam Kass who turned the Obamas against packaged macaroni and cheese, Mrs. Obama revealed in an interview with Cooking Light:
I remember, actually, Sam Kass [former executive director of Let’s Move! and White House chef], at one point—we first met him because he was one of the people early on when we were campaigning who came in to help me cook while I started campaigning, because I just didn’t have the time to do it. And he was a core of our processed-food elimination.
And my kids loved the macaroni and cheese in a box. And he said, if it’s not real food then we’re not going to do it. If we want macaroni and cheese, we’ll cook it with real milk and real cheese. He said, there’s nothing wrong with mac and cheese, but it’s got to be real food.
Oh and about those school lunches that no one likes…
You’ll learn to like what you’re given.
