Michelle Obama on Friday launched a passionate defense of one of her main legacies as US first lady after the Trump administration moved to make school lunches less healthy.

Speaking at a health summit in Washington, DC, Obama questioned the motives of officials and companies seeking to overhaul the school nutrition standards she helped implement.

"We have to make sure we don't let anybody take us back, because the question is where we going back to?" she said to applause.

"This is where you really have to look at motives. You have to stop and think, 'Why don't you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you?'

"And why is that a partisan issue? Why would that be political?"

Although she did not mention President Trump by name, his agriculture secretary, Sonny Perdue, signed a proclamation earlier this month relaxing nutrition standards for whole grains, sodium, and milk in schools.

Obama said meals in school were particularly important because many children eat breakfast and lunch on campus.
