'I'll never forgive Michelle Obama for this school lunch': Students sick of smaller, healthier..
UK Daily Mail ^ | April 7, 2014 | Staff

Posted on 04/07/2014 5:53:56 AM PDT by C19fan

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.

Our Marie Antoinette "pet project" that has cost local schools billions of dollars. One has to read outside sources to get news like this as our own MSM is a US version of Pravda.

They need to know who to blame. The vacationing, partying, food-for-me-but-not-for-thee, Beyonce/Jay-Z queen and her hubby.

Hahaha, I love it. The stuff the schools serve is a LONG WAY from what the lunch ladies made for us when I was a kid eating in the ‘caff.’ I don’t know how it works now, but when I was volunteering at the local Middle School, I would not have touched that stuff.

There was a huge push to get every kid on the lunch program, though, as federal money was funneled through it to the school. I am sure this crud comes with piles of federal money. I hope they all become conservatives!

The photos are appalling. No child is going to eat half a kiwi. Kiwi is used as garnish on the tv show Chopped! It’s one thing to overfeed a kid but to dish out food that would be ignored by inmates at a Japanese prison of war camp is child abuse.

Or getting them used to the upcoming famine...

Despite the negative press, the media is still calling the new lunch program "healthier". There's nothing healthy about low-calorie, low-fat, high-carb.

I must have missed something. The UK paper refers to these lunch programs as “the law.” Since when? I thought participation is voluntary. Or does the Queen have lawmaking powers?

On one hand I want to smack these little spoiled kids and revert back to my upbringing...”You better sit and eat that food, I don’t care if you like it or not, its good food that someone paid for and you gonna appreciate it. This ain’t no damn motel you little ingrate.”

On the other hand it proves my theory that every time something is just fine, a liberal will come in to “make it better” (read: make it THEIR way) and spend millions of dollars to make something worse than it was, when it was perfectly fine to start with.

A little bit of both, I guess. Chewy shouldn’t have used it for her hobby project and totally screwed it up... while, even though different, the little brats still should be thankful they have good food.

I think the students will stop eating it or eating less.

therefore, the schools will make less and buy less.

So now, Chewy will say she singlehandedly cut costs to school lunches while helping kids eat less.

those lunches look awful and you are scarred from your parents’ weirdness about food if you can’t tell that

there is nothing good about being forced to eat stuff that is unappetizing

my dad forced my sister to eat her Chow Mein, yech, and so she did, poor thing and then threw up all over the table

Served my dad right

That being said, my mom grew up poor in the Depression and my dad spent 3 years of his childhood in a concentration camp

Our parents were scarred by the times they lived in

No reason to act like we have to eat Spam and drink Tang today, we don’t

I want my kids to have food they view as appealing

Hungry kids aren’t learning.

I thought school lunch was great in the 80’s.

I remember getting the square pizza and fries just about every day.

I would take the fries, put them on top of the pizza and eat it like a taco. Straight outside to the courtyard where the jock/cheerleader crowd hang out.

And I’m still alive!

1% milk is junk. My diet lady said to put 1/2 and 1/2 in my coffee. It has fewer carbs.

The reality of this mess is what the WH or these political dimwits, or even our county officials cannot understand.

If you hint that only $1.50 of federal, state or county money will be spent on the kid’s meal, and the kid is also spending roughly $2 from his own money....you end up with roughly $2 of food, and the rest spent on labor required.

You then try to figure some gimmick that kids will eat....cost almost $2, and be nutritional. It’s almost impossible.

As a kid in 1973, I can remember paying 45-cents for a plate of food....typically having one thin slice of roast beef, some mashed potatoes, half-an-apple, and a roll (with some milk). You try offering that to a kid today, and they will refuse it.

I had enough trouble on an Air Force base to eat lunch with $6....if I didn’t use the chow hall. You basically get two slices of pizza (combo) and a soda with that much money. It’s not even good pizza.

And where she applied the school’ program’s “savings”. Are those photos really what they are feeding teens in our schools? Hell how can they even think if they’re hungry during class especially at that time of life when they’re growing? I can’t wait to see the Communist Gay Dynamic Duo leave the WH

That’s a funny site. The first recommendation is to avoid eating “processed” stuff that “comes in a bag or a box.”

Meanwhile, he makes his money by selling “processed” stuff that “comes in a bag or a box.”

http://store.chriskresser.com/collections/all

Good suggestions, to eat whole and unrefined. But that he sells supplements (rather than whole, unrefined foods) hypocritical.

The program is “law” because it is decreed by whatever federal bureaucracy is in charge of making such inane rulings.

That said, the pics show a swill that looks like its made for a prison camp.

look at those photos

that is NOT “good food” and the “little brats” who come from neglectful homes where the parents do not prepare them lunch are not at fault here-

they are stuck with this carelessly prepared govt mandated tastelessly presented slop as 1 of their 3 daily meals (perhaps 2 if they also get breakfast in school)

I pack my DD’s lunch but she tells me about the gray “pizza” and lumpy milk and other yuk foods that are served DAILY in the cafeteria line. Some of her classmates have no choice. I pack extra food like buttered bagels and fruit so she can share with some who are her friends.

How about a law that these same “healthy” menus and recipes MUST be served at the White House AND at the Congressional cafeteria

Our grade school lunch was so good, we’d eat all of our food so we could get a second helping. Nutritious too.

I'll repost my pictures of my dinner at a Freddy's restaurant the other night, just to put some balance against these horrible so-called "lunches". Look out Michelle, it's grease!! Always a great experience!

These poor kids must be starving. Looks nothing like the school lunches I used to eat. 1% milk? That's water, basically, with something thrown in.

Back in the late 60s, during my junior high years (grades 7-9), was the only time I attended a school that had a cafeteria. For 35 cents, you got an entrée, veg, fruit/dessert, rolls (fresh-baked and the main reason to eat lunch), and milk. I always ate just fine and those pictures don’t hold a candle to what I received. It’s a sad commentary that we’ve backed up so far in the intervening years.

the miserable lunches are not "the law"

I think they are if any federal food subsidies are involved. A lot of schools serving this crap have ALL of their students getting free breakfast and lunch, so they complain but aren't about to pay for an alternative.

It can be done. I encountered a handful of schools that worked with their food providers to provide edible healthy meals within the guidelines. It seems most people would rather complain and demand than help to solve the problem.

PS: Kiwis, when properly ripened and kept fresh are very tasty and nutritional.

It’s not just schools, it has gone into the HOSPITALS too, there food was bad enough, Mooch’s plan makes it worse.

When I was in the hospital in Oct, all they had was her crap. I refused to eat it. Hubby tried, when a RET. SCPO turns his nose up at it you KNOW IT IS BAD! How do you ruin frozen french toast? Let it thaw on the plate, no margarine, no syrup, 1 soggy mess. No coffee, no Tea, just fruit juices and water. He’d stop at Sub Way and bring me dinner, and BK for a croissant/ham, cheese, egg.

Lunch I skipped.

Good thing I always find the Nurses supply of coffee. I don’t function well in the morning with out my coffee. Brought my own meds too, as all they had were generics, I take 2 name brand because of generic side effects. There schedule is NOT my schedule. And those 2 drugs have to be taken on schedule. Not when some nurse gets around to pushing her drug cart in the door. Plus I now take my tablet and google the drugs. Saved my hide a few times.

***On one hand I want to smack these little spoiled kids and revert back to my upbringing***

Back in my school days (1952-1964) all the school lunches were great except one.

The best was Denver CO. The worst was Aztec NM, and I mean really, really bad, so bad I started taking my lunch. It seemed every lunch consisted of a poor quality mac and “cheese”(?) and kids were constantly throwing that slop back up on their trays. And to think, 35 miles west of there at Kirtland Schools their lunches were great!

Everywhere else the lunches were also good. We only went home for lunch when we lived within a few hundred yards of the school.

I remember when our school served Pizza the first time. Most of the kids had no idea what it was and tossed it. It was really good for us that ate our pizza.

Check out this comment — it’s a good one

~~~Just like Obamacare where you have to “pass the bill to see what’s in it,” you have to buy the ObambaLunch before you see what’s in it. Here I thought Michelle was a lawyer, and I had no idea that she had a doctorate in pediatric nutrition. We are so lucky to have these geniuses to tell us how to live our lives. I’m surprised any of us know how to get up and dress ourselves in the morning.~~~

From K-8 we had sack lunches we brought from home, ate at our desks, school furnished a half pint of whole milk for 15 cents a day. Then we went out to the playground for 45 mins. Gym if weather was bad.

HS I still carried that bologna sandwich, and bought milk and chips 25cents. Another 50 cents for the bus ride, no school buses back then. I went to a Vo/Tech HS. The regular HS closer to home, but still to far to walk, did not teach what I wanted to learn.

Again, back in my day, if a student did not like the school lunch, they would go across the street to the malt shop and get a hot dog or hamburger, soda or malt and ice cream, IF they had the money. Some kids had credit privileges and could sign for their food and daddy would later pay. No one was forced to eat in the cafeteria.

Today, with “Closed Campus” rules, the local malt shops near schools have closed down.

Not long ago, a neighbor woman sent her Kindergarden student to school with a home packed lunch. The school confiscated it and forced the kid to eat the government mandated slop.
It seemed that the more kids forced to eat the slop, the more money the school got from the government, to serve more slop.
