Hangry! On Friday, Nov. 21, students started sarcastically tweeting #ThanksMichelleObama at the First Lady with photos of their not-so-tasty-looking cafeteria food.
Michelle Obama, is, of course, behind the USDA's new guidelines for school lunches, and apparently the kids aren't into it.

"Had a very #healthylunch today. The apple definitely made up for the 'mystery mush' #ThanksMichelleObama," one student tweeted along with a photo of an orange tray graced with only unappetizing "mush" and an apple.
Another student replied to the likely still-hungry kid with: "They call it spanish rice" and "@huntwhitney4 looks like floor sweepings mixed into fructose."

The meals are meant to be Thanksgiving related, but as another student argued, seem a far cry from patriotic turkey day trimmings. "@Jess_Sency @Shutterbugfun What IS that supposed to be?" one tweeted after a friend posted a picture of what was supposed to be baked beans.

The first lady has been adamant about her goal to end childhood obesity. In July, Barack Obama's wife said she'd "fight until the bitter end to make sure that every kid in this country continues to have the best nutrition that they can have."

Under Obama's guidance, the USDA guidelines implemented limits on calories, fat, sugar, and sodium for all food and drinks sold during the school day for 100,000 schools across the country.
