Af­ter only six days on the job, Agri­cul­ture Sec­re­tary Sonny Per­due moved to stall one of for­mer first lady Michelle Obama’s sig­na­ture ac­com­plish­ments: stricter nutri­tional stan­dards for school break­fasts and lunches, which feed more than 31 mil­lion Amer­i­can chil­dren. Per­due an­nounced that his depart­ment would be slow­ing the im­ple­men­ta­tion of ag­gres­sive stan­dards on sodium, whole grains and sweet­ened milks that passed un­der the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion.
