Michelle Obama’s “healthy” school lunch program isn’t going over too well. Thanks to social media students are able to share their thoughts on the food they’re being served. The hashtags #ThanksMichelle and #ThanksMichelleObama are big hits, though. Here’s a sampling of the feedback.
My dog threw up today and it looked just like this one:

The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady’s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted food.
Kids have taken to Twitter to post photographs of the wretched results of the new federal guidelines that any school participating in the National School Lunch Program must follow to comply with the government-knows-best program for nutrition.
Meager burgers on soggy buns and sorry little skim milk cartons amid otherwise bare lunch trays, mystery meat, tiny little teaspoons of taco meat amid a few straggly cheese shreds on a massive tortilla, and tiny pebble-like chicken nuggets a cat wouldn’t eat are pretty much the result of calorie-limiting, one-size-fits-all, anything-but-buy-local, lunch programs.
