Interestingly, though, the revolt over feta cheese and vegetables might not come to Sidwell Friends, the elite private school the Obama kids attend in Washington, D.C.

According to the school's website, pepperoni pizza is on the menu today:

French Mushroom Soup
Classic Caesar Salad
Boston Bean Salad
Pepperoni Flatbread Pizza
Variety Flatbread Pizza
Variety Veggie Flatbread Pizzas
Sauteed Local Greens
Sliced Melon
