#ThanksMichelleObama: Kids Tweet Their Gross School Lunch Pics (See more)... Hot

Help us create more awareness! Please share this article...

First Lady Michelle Obama made headlines by pledging to support “healthier” school lunches and exercise programs in a quest to end childhood obesity, but if these pictures are any indication, we may end up launching a war on anorexia in the near future instead.

Kids across the country have taken to the social media site Twitter in protest of poor quality school lunches, sharing pictures and capturing enough attention to send the hashtag (topic) #ThanksMichelleObama toward the top of the trending topics list.

While some schools are implementing promising new programs such as this district in Minnesota that’s removing GMO ingredients, others continue to serve some of the mystery meals you’ll see in the pictures below. 

In response to the pictures, which show kids’ lunch trays with bizarre combinations of foods including hot dogs with no buns and other odd dishes comprised of low-quality foods, the USDA said that the students’ photos: “do not fully reflect the full range of choices students are provided.”

Are the New Healthy Lunch Guidelines Misguided?

The Obama administration has been widely publicized as support healthier food, especially in school lunches, but some analysts have begun wondering whether new guidelines are misguided.

According to this article from the Washington Times, about 1,086,000 students stopped buying school lunch during the 2012-2013 school year, a surprising outcome considering that participation had steadily increased for nearly a decade, as this article says.

The guidelines also focus in large part on calorie ranges per age group, as well as sodium limits and specific ounce amounts for grains and meats. Such guidelines have left many people wondering about food quality and why we’re not counting chemicals instead of counting calories.

Real food is more expensive as we all know, and the U.S. government including the Obama administration have been strong supporters of genetically modified foods, which tend to be included in lesser-quality ingredients that make up questionable meals like the ones shown below.

While the meals do seem to be embellished for some cases for dramatic effect, the Times article did note a tendency for schools create odd combinations such as “shrimp and cheese stick” in order to meet the meal guidelines.

And even when the schools do produce fruits and vegetables, kids have been throwing them out, the article said.

What do you think? Is the first lady getting a bad rap or does she deserve to be part of the criticism, especially considering her husband’s ongoing support for Monsanto?

Check out some of the photos below and also check out the hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama on Twitter for more pictures and discussion. And while it would be wise to take these photos with a grain of salt, we also shouldn’t simply dismiss them, as we’ve all no doubt experienced similarly low quality food in our own days in the cafeteria. 

Eight of the Worst Lunch Pics in the Recent #ThanksMichelleObama Thread

1. The Lonely Hot Dog

In this case it may be better to cut out the bun, since most contain high fructose corn syrup, unnatural dough conditioners and more, but the end result is something that is the complete opposite of “healthy” and/or appetizing.


2. They Call This “Spanish Rice”

 Posted by Twitter user Hunter Whitney, who came up with a more accurate name for this so-called “Spanish rice:” Mystery mush.

3. Unknown Dish

With marinara sauce some sort of meat product…

4. The Two-Roll Special

Recent USDA guidelines have led to cutbacks on white bread. In this case it’s hard to tell whether it’s white or contains more whole grain, but considering the quality of the food shown it is likely to contain highly unnatural ingredients like most of the bread on store shelves these days.

5. Case of the Missing Bun

Remember the now-infamous missing bun from the first pic? This might be it. Here, it’s covered in cheese and paired with “conventional” milk almost certainly from cows fed a diet GMO corn. michelle 5

6. Not Just for Breakfast Anymore

Sausages (and hot dogs for that matter) are cheap, but are they really a good choice for kids in need of brain food, and nourishment in general?

7. #WhenAllElseFails

And here, we have a corn. Seems more like food fit for a carnival food truck than a place of learning, doesn’t it?

8. I Can’t Even…

I just…I don’t…I’m done. I guess at this point I’m just #thankful I’m not these kids right now.

Say it with me everyone, #ThanksMichelleObama!

(In all seriousness folks, this isn’t just about the First Lady and her scathingly ironic organic garden anymore, this is about a system that is broken, a system that we can all work to change together with a strong commitment and the proper strategies. On the surface, Michelle has made what appear to be positive strides toward a better lunch system, but as the pictures continue to pour in, it’s fair to wonder if we need to go back to the drawing board and start feeding our kids food that we would actually want to eat ourselves, since they don’t have the freedom, options and food preparation skills that we do).

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?

By J. Davis III

Category: HEALTH

trackingRecently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works...

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown...

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
