'I'll never forgive Michelle Obama for this school lunch': Students sick of smaller, healthier portions take to social media to rail against first lady's pet project

By DAILY MAIL REPORTERS

PUBLISHED: 05:12, 7 April 2014 UPDATED: 05:21, 7 April 2014


American public school students sick of the smaller portions and healthier offerings they get at lunch thanks to Michelle Obama's anti-obesity initiatives are sounding off on social media.

Just a month after school lunch participation saw the steepest drop on record following the implementation of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, students tired of going home hungry are making sure the first lady knows why.

'I'll never forgive Michelle Obama for this school lunch,' tweeted one angry student.

Small portions: Students who rely on school lunch for five meals a week are complaining en masse via social media about the changes Michelle Obamas pet anti-obesity legislation has made to their lunches

Many of the tweets have come complete with photos of sad looking lunches, some of which don't even look all that healthy.

The extremely negative reviews have over a million kids refusing to eat the offerings, an ironic result for legislation meant to combat hunger.

The first lady rolled out the law's final regulations in January 2012 with a presentation linked to her 'Let's Move!' children's health initiative. Changes took effect that fall. In the ensuing nine months, 33 states cited 'challenges with palatability – food that tasted good to students' as one reason sales tumbled.

Dont like it: Not only do the kids say its not enough, but theyre complaining it tastes terrible, too

One change in the nutrition standards, a reduction in the maximum calorie-count of each meal, came under fire from student-athletes at the high school level who complained that their bodies needed more food in order to sustain long workouts and build muscle mass.

Adolescent outrage over the smaller portions led a group of teens at Wallace County High School in Sharon Springs, Kansas to publish an online music video, aimed at Mrs. Obama, titled 'We Are Hungry.'

Millions have watched it on YouTube.

Mrs. Obama has spent a great deal of time on her school lunch agenda. Will it be derailed by outraged adolescents?

It seems they did this to be dramatical, it looks like they opted out of other items if not they should contact their school board not the white house . They offer fruit , salads and other stuff at my sons school.

They still even have french fries they are just baked .

If their parents won't do it, these "kids" are old enough to make their own lunch and bring it to school. It is not the governments responsibility to fatten your kids.

Don't they still serve breakfast ? and some high schools have little snack bars, don't know if they got rid of that. The kids who dont get the free lunch or don't like it used to be able to buy other foods when I was in high school, but it was fast food, we had our snack bar as well which was also unhealthy lol. We also could get seconds at times
