Texans are fighting back – Texas agriculture commissioner, Sid Miller is taking control away from Michelle Obama and giving it back to the kids and the parents. Miller believes that parents and teachers should be responsible for making decisions about their children’s diets.
Michelle Obama’s mandated lunches have kids going hungry and has parents angry. The opposition is strongest from athletes, who say the meals do not provide nearly enough nutrition for physical activities.
One hungry student took a picture of the food they had been served, and tweeted:
“I’ll never forgive Michelle Obama for this school lunch.”
Megan Howell, a parent who ate one of the lunches with her daughter, tweeted a picture of a plain hamburger, and half a kiwi fruit. The caption read “This is sad!”
Miss Poppet on Twitter uploaded a photo of a tortilla, single piece of ham and some iceberg lettuce with dressing. She wrote “You seriously think this will keep the average teenager from being hungry? This is crap.”
A group of students at Wallace County High School in Sharon Springs, Kansas, created a music video about the lunches, directed at the First Lady. The video shows students eating junk food to fight hunger pains, and athletes collapsing from hunger during practice.
In Harlan County, Kentucky, school officials are reporting that students say Michelle Obama’s school lunches “taste like vomit.”
The initiative calling for smaller portions at school lunches, and led by the First Lady, was titled “Let’s Move.” It now looks like students are moving — away from school lunches.
