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.

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

a sammich or a scoop of salad?  that don't even sound right.  I need to see some detailed lunch lists cause ain't no way they tryna just give kids a scoop of salad for lunch.  Are they not implementing the changes correctly or are the kids/parents not telling everything?

I think this is an example of a few lunch menus.
Below, a snapshot of innovative dishes being served in schools around the country, according to the School Nutrition Association. All meet the new federal guidelines:

1. Knox County Schools, Tenn.

Pizza made with a whole-grain crust and reduced-sodium sauce using sweet potato purée

Spinach Maria (a local dish) or steamed broccoli

Locally grown melon slices

2. Shawnee Public Schools, Okla.

Chopped BBQ brisket-on-a-bun

Squash sticks

Baked beans

Pineapple

3. Arlington Public Schools, Va.

Whole-grain cheese ravioli or turkey and cheese wrap

Romaine salad

Fresh fruit

Cucumber coins

[See Rethinking The Kid-Veggie Relationship.]

4. Highline Public Schools, Wash.

Beef barley stew

Rosemary wheat roll

Crunchy coleslaw

Chilled pears

5. Andover Public Schools, Mass.

Homemade chicken pot pie over a whole-grain biscuit

Oven-roasted butternut squash

Cranberry sauce

Fresh cantaloupe





At the school I worked at, the kids loved the heathy foods. They got breakfast and lunch and they actually bright fruit and like 1 unhealthy things. The problem was they opened up something called the snack snack and kids hauled azz over there after school.

Lies.  The font on my sons menu is so small now because they added so much stuff to it.  These kids dumped everything they didn't like/want and took a photo.  My lil man loves anything from the green garden so he's probably a lot less pressed about the changes.

The food they posted wouldn't even meet minimum nutrition standards.  I suspect the schools will respond because they could be cited/fined for serving the sh*t those kids are posting.

the complaints are legit if they're really only getting a dry chicken sammich and milk for lunch but...i'm sorry...these kids need more people.  Even when lunch was bad foods you had veggie's n'sh*t on the side...even if u didn't eat them.  They tryna play the FLOTUS' initiative because most likely they don't like the fact that most of their tray is covered with more whole/raw fruit and veggies than before.
 
now...if it comes out that these kids are tellin' the truth then I have no prollem apologizing but...I don't think that's the case here.  And let me add...if for some reason these kids are only gettin' a dry sammich for lunch. Would that be Michelle's fault if that's not what she's advocating?  If it's simply the matter of a school tryna cut corners/pocket money?

I went to lunch with my god-daughter last time I was home before the holidays, and I was amazed... she goes to the same elementary school I went to, k-6 and the line looked more like a small scale picadilly's, the workers were even dressed differently. They had on really nice uniforms that were clean and some were even attractive. Im sliding down the line with her in awe of my choices. Salad bar/ fruit bar combo, that day they had small grilled chicken cutlets, and seasonal veggies as a choice among other options... I was blown away! I think I slid down the line, with a face like "where da fucc was all this when I was here!" LOL! I don't believe it.

I could see this being an issue for kids who only eat at school, which happens quite often. However, the outrage seems generally ridiculous. There is an abundance of options on the new menus so if children are only eating chicken sandwiches and milk then that's solely their choice.

Don't blame FLOTUS because your kids don't want to eat fruits and vegetables.

Its weird because my older kids would have rather died than eat any of the veggies at dinner.  It was so hard just to make them get a few bites down.  This one (10yr old) is a whole different beast.  Whenever we have broccoli, Brussels sprouts, okra, cabbage, squash, collard greens, carrots or anything like that I have to guard my plate.   He eats all of that first and then looks at the other sides and meat.   I can't even tell y'all how many times this lil niccah stole my okraCry

But yes it drove me crazy.  Now that they are older they are the same way.  They went from refusing to eat it, to craving it.  Brussel sprouts used to be the devil now we have to made a huge pan of it when they're here.   Sometimes we just make brocolli in olive oil with some garlic salt as a snack.  It makes me feel good to know that all the healthy food cooking and talking actually was getting through to them. 

The schools in the suburbs had a fancy salad bar though and that's the only thing my daughter would eat.  EverydayConfused

I don't feel like it's the governments job to make sure my kids are not obese. That's my job. 

My kids will more than likely have a packed lunch anyway so doesn't matter to me. 

The private school I went to was a junk food HAVEN. We ALWAYS had fries for lunch. chili cheese fries, fries with hot dogs, fries with a hamburger. Then it was a big plate of them too. We had a candy machine in the lunch room and were served soda. Our lunches were NEVER healthy, but they were delicious. Like everything tasted good. Oh they had salads...I forgot.

Yt kids are extremely annoying and self righteous. By the time you are in high school you can choose to eat, bring your own lunch, or starve. Sh*t I NEVER ate lunch, I would bring an apple, juice and some chips and snack in class or eat that for lunch. They can get a protein bar if they are still "hungry".

the govt has the responsibility to provide healthy meal choices in schools

its also your responsibility to do the same at home etc

trans fats are know to reduce alertness amongst other things,

as a parent, i would be concerned if the govt was providing meals with poor nutritional content that actually impede sensory acuity and are a barrier to learning

but hey whatever floats your boat

trans fats are know to reduce alertness amongst other things,

as a parent, i would be concerned if the govt was providing meals with poor nutritional content that actually impede sensory acuity and are a barrier to learning

but hey whatever floats your boat


Agreeing with this partially because it's true and partially because I'm imagining your voice saying this aloud and your british accent makes everything sound credible.

Seriously though, if you don't like what's at school bring something else.  When I was in school I would usually bring leftovers for lunch.

Oh yes, I agree with that. 

If they don't like it they should pack a lunch. 

I've always packed lunches so I more than likely will for my kids.

im too lazy and too tired to bring up the data the data of kids that take school (read as govt) provided lunch, not out of a desire or want, but out of a need

its much easier said than to pack a lunch and is presumptuous of the kids' financial status

for those that can afford to be make a healthy choice and and are able to bring it to school.. yes do as you please, but for those that cant afford or lack the knowledge to make healthy choices then they need all the help they can get

and i can pull up the low carb, what you cook today thread etc etc to illustrate how even adults are making misinformed food choices

but im sleep though
