Changes to School Food – level 1

12-04-2019 07:00

President Trump is the president of the USA. President Obama was the president before him. When Obama is president, he makes stronger food rules for schools. He wants the food to be healthy.

Trump’s administration has different ideas. People change these food rules. The school food does not have to be as healthy. Last Wednesday, some states sue the Trump administration.

Michelle Obama is President Obama’s First Lady. She helps make the stronger rules. She asks why the government makes the changes. She asks why the government does not want children to have good food at school.

Difficult words: was (past of ‘is’), rule (something which tells you what you can and must not do), administration (the people who work for Trump), sue (to go to court and say that somebody is doing something bad).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
