Students Tweet Unappetizing Lunch Photos With The Hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama

Students aren’t too happy about the new USDA regulation signed by Michelle Obama. They have taken it to social media and tweeted their unappetizing lunch photos with the hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama.

The new regulation includes:

  • Ensuring students are offered both fruits and vegetables every day of the week
  • Substantially increasing offerings of whole grain-rich foods;
  • Offering only fat-free or low-fat milk varieties;
  • Limiting calories based on the age of children being served to ensure proper portion size; and
  • Increasing the focus on reducing the amounts of saturated fat, trans fats and sodium.

Here are the students’ rants:

Some took it too seriously.

 

The new USDA regulation is a 15 year project to ensure that kids are getting the nutrition they need in school.
