I read the article. I think there are four factors driving Trump's decision:
1. Trump did it on Michelle Obama's birthday. It's kind of "in your face Michelle". Michelle, of course, was a champion for nutritious school lunches and worked hard to make kids more healthy including growing vegetables with the kids help on the White House grounds. The vegetable garden is still there, but it is maintained by the National Park Service and private funding.
2. This was another Obama law and Trump has promised to undo every Obama law and executive action. Trump has an "Obama syndrome".
3. Trump wants the votes of the potato industry that has lobbied for this change so they can sell more potatoes.
4. Trump wants school kids to look more like him. Fat and heavy.
