Junk Food Fight: Students Tee Off on Michelle Obama

As school starts up, some kids aren't happy about the empty vending machines and lack of nacho cheese

Note to the first lady: The kids want their Funyuns back.

Some nutritionists and parents are huge backers of Michelle Obama for her three-year crusade against childhood obesity. She has pushed hard to get kids to cut back on sugars and trans fats and exercise more. But some of the kids who have had their Salisbury steaks replaced with asparagus have some less kind things to say about her.

S/O to my girl @MichelleObama I'm sure that burger tastes a lot better than my lunch http://t.co/VXgrEffS5B

As the school year got underway in parts of the country, some kids are sounding off on Twitter via a new hashtag: #BringBackOurSnacks. They are irked at the empty vending machines, the soda-less drink choices and the overall lack of junk food—and they’re threatening to skip lunch altogether if they’re going to be force-fed whole grains and fresh fruits.

Empty vending machines

Meanwhile, FLOTUS was out jogging on the streets of Martha’s Vineyard, practicing what she preached, but not that happy for the public to be privy to her early morning exercise regimen.

  • Yeah, let us give our kids REAL food – fast and sweet!  ALSO, lets put some cigarettes in those vending machines…….Kids have their rights!  

  • Please, there is nothing wrong with these kids lunches. If they don’t like it, they can always bring their lunch from home. I think it’s great there are no more vending machines full of junk. Too many kids are over weight or potential diabetics. I hate when everyone is quick to throw out the Liberal or Republican card. It’s about our children being healthy!

  • Let’s make a deal, conservatives will stay out of liberal bedrooms, although we are forced to pay for your abortions, and in return, liberals quit telling our kids what to eat for lunch while on public school property.

  • The garbage the mooch wants our kids to eat should be served at one of her parties insead of ribs and wagu beef. We have  bunch of hypocrites in the WH and she is the biggest. Why is it that more and more school systems are turning down federal funds so they can serve their children real food.

  • She has no authority, so what are schools doing even showing consideration for what she says?She’s not much smarter than her stupid shackup.

  • This is a very teachable moment for the students to see first hand how they will need to work around the debilitating constraints of “progressive liberal” government. They should learn from this that they will need to bring their snacks and lunches of their choice to school and hope that it is not confiscated by Michelle’s food police. This illustrates the reality of overreaching government in a nutshell.   

  • The Obamas need to butt out of our lives and do what they were elected to do!  Protect and represent the US on the world stage.  Michelle has absolutely NO credentials to be advising on nutrition. She needs to mind her own family and their nutritional needs!

  • Did anyone vote her in???If I had kids in school I would tell her to F%$# off.

  • This is ‘t about kids health. Its about another backdoor attempt by psychopaths to gain more and more control over the average American.

  • OK, kids.  Now is your chance to do a little teaching.  Your parents who voted for Obama are to blame for your lousy meals at school.  Yell at them!  Tell them they made a terrible mistake and before they vote in the next election, they should make sure that the candidate they favor has a little more experience than being a community organizer.  They should also demand the candidates spell out their agendas.  Your parents let Obama slide because they thought he was the messiah who could do no wrong.  You must show them how wrong they were.

Whereas the old Democrat Party was considered as The Party of the Working People, the Socialist Democratic Party wants to turn the country into a Socialist Worker’s Party and one where the Government Controls the People. Overweight People are a burden on the Collective’s Socialist Medicine Program a.k.a. The Affordable Healthcare Act, commonly called, Obamacare. Smart folks will Wake Up and look at the School Lunch Program as a true indicator of that which is still to come.

If they cared about health they could make the 49 percent of Americans on food stamps only get healthy stuff have you seen them do that? They know those voters would run them out . So kids graduating from high schools don’t vote democrats you’ll be happier in the long run.

  • Just preparing our kids for life under Communism.  

  • We don’t need the government telling us what our children can eat, and especially not an unelected woman.

  • Lets see.  The next generations eat garbage every meal.  The next generations already are obese compared to previous.  They take no responsablity for their actions which will only have repercussions to the US government later.  There is absoultely no reason they cannot eat like past generatons did in school.  This idea they think they need pizza, chocolate milk, fries ect, ect and snack machines filled with soda and candy is absurd.

  • Hey kids, this is an excellent lesson in the evils of progressivism, liberalism and what it is to vote for a democrat.So, grow up, get into the world and vote TEA party or Republican.

  • Americans are angry primarily because so-called “progressive” individuals in our society are trying to impose their standards (And their will) on others.Of course people will resist impositions that are contrary to their freedom to choose.It’s time for the “nanny’s” to learn something from recovered alcoholics. That is, no amount of nagging, scolding and punishment will be effective at curbing an alcoholics drinking, if the nag and scold is not an alcoholic. But shared wisdom of fellow alcoholics is particularly effective at helping even the most hopeless alcoholic achieve sobriety. This same principle would work for children at school. If they would witness the school fat kid lose his/her weight by adopting a nutritious diet, many students would do the same.Every presidential administration I have observed in my 60+ years has attempted to promote exercise and good dietary practices. And all of their entreaties have been in vain. People, particularly young people, detest being preached at.

  • Personal responsibility has choked to death on the silver plated plastic spoon of the nanny state.

  • Don’t blame that wilderbeast looking thing that made these rules, blame the 51% of clueless American lemmings who voted in her ilk.

  • Michelle Obama’s policies have taken water out of the choice of drinks in a purchased hot lunch. Makes no sense at all. It is acceptable to have white, chocolate or strawberry milk, but now I have to pay an extra 50 cents for my child to have water (probably the healthiest part of the entire lunch).

    • Joe McDonald:  I would agree with you wholeheartedly, but there is a problem with the brown bag situation.  Many school’s (and more are following this pattern) are inspecting brown bag lunches to supposedly make sure the student is getting the proper nutrition.  If the meal does not conform to Obama’s requirements, the lunches have been taken away and disposed of by the staff.  The child ends up with chicken nuggets and tater tots instead, which by-the-way does not conform to the standards either. The parents of the child ends up get a bill for the phony lunch.  In some cases, children have had lunches taken away, and not given anything to eat at lunchtime.  These tactics I see as unreasonable.

  • It’s amazing who libtards always think they know how you should live your life better than you do, God help us should Hillbillery get elected the country as we know it will no longer exist

  • The whole program is dumber then how Michele Obama’s face looks. You cant change kids by just changing what they eat at school lunch. They will just go home and make up for it by eating what they want and probably more of it to make up for what they didnt get at school. Its the parents job to instill good eating habits in their kids. Not big sister Michele Obama.

  • Here is a thought, stopeating the government forced food and PACK YOUR OWN LUNCH! If you are on free and reduced, well thats yor problem and you don’t have a say in anything. As my grandfather always said “If your hungry you eat anything” so eat or pack you choose.

  • The school lunch programs used to offer daily choices of a hot meal (i.e. spaghetti) or a cold meal (i.e. ham salad) with a carton of milk. PERIOD.  No vending machines with snacks or soft drinks.  And there was phys. ed. or recess.  And when you finished homework in the afternoon, you went biking or roller skating.  The First Lady’s “Let’s Move” campaign is where it’s at.  There is just too much sitting!

    • Hi Marsapan10.  According to various interwebs reports, Ive read that home prepared lunches are monitored by public school officials and lunches with too much or too little of this or that is met with various warnings and if deficient according to the rules, is supplemented with say, a bun or soggy vegetables, a fine and letter of reprimand.  But im not sure if that is a federal or local policy.  I do wonder though if its just that simple as you say.

    • That’s what I was wondering — these lunches have limited calories.  The students most affected by this are those that attended schools in poorer districts (wealthier school districts can opt out and not accept Federal money).  What if these students from poorer families aren’t getting dinner? What if they play sports after school?  These students should not have their lunch calories intake limited to a number.  Some kids need more calories.

  • Michelle is the typical liberal, believing that government can make better personal decisions than can the individual. If you cannot convince students that it benefits them to alter their diet, you do not have the right to force your opinions onto the school lunch program.

  • Why is the right and conservatives so bent on forcing the government to feed kids junk food?Also, one of the biggest problems has to do with how schools and food vendors are skirting the regulations. For example, before the regulations students received a large honey bun for breakfast. When the new regs hit, all they did was make the honey bun smaller to meet the requirements. What they could have done was replace the honey bun with a large portion of a healthy breakfast, then kids wouldn’t be starving.

      • Did you ever consider the fact that there are plenty of parents who leave for work very early and can’t necessarily make a nutritious breakfast for their kids?  Or the fact that some rural children are picked up very early in order for the bus to make its rounds and be back to the school in time?  I was one of those children who had parents out the door at 4am and had to catch the bus by 6:30 (after 1/4 mile walk) when I was a teenager.  There were kids on the bus even before me.  It’s not as uncommon as you’d imagine.

      • I don’t have kids, but I am happily willing to have my tax dollars used to make sure kids are getting fed, but not if it junk food.

    • Well I ask how you whould know what the kids got for school breakfast.  I never knew because I made breakfast for my kids.  I don’t think schools should be giving kids breakfast.  That is the first item.Number two I doubt if the breakfast consists of only a honeybun.  Number three.  Kids won’t be starving if people act like a parent.  A box of ceral is about $3 (you don’t need to buy name brand!!!!!) and it will feed the kid all week.I see that there are many positing here that expect the government and others to do the job of parenting.

    • Either this the typical Liberal spin or you are stupid enough to belive that since we dont ageee with you we must want to force feed our children junk food. Which is it? I would love to know!

The bill is part of the reauthorization of funding for child nutrition (see the original Child Nutrition Act). The bill funds child nutrition programs and free lunch programs in schools for the next 5 years.[1] In addition, the bill sets new nutrition standards for schools, and allocates $4.5 billion for their implementation.

      • Wealthier school districts generally have healthier food to begin with. You don’t see cellophane wrapped gas station burgers at too many affluent schools, but they are a staple of poor schools.

    • private school actually learning

    • the owebowels are racist america haters

  • I’m not fan of Michelle Obama but these spoiled brats need to understand that this is being done for their benefit, that they might learn to eat well and not join a world of unhealthy fatties with chronic health problems and premature deaths. When they’re hungry enough, they’ll eat the healthier foods provided for them. Until then, let them go hungry.

    • Judging from your photo, you don’t practice what you preach. And, I might add, who’s business is it of yours!

    • Ted, did you see ANY heathy food in those photos?  Get smarter pal.

      • No, because schools have partnered with junk food vendors to provide school lunches. All they did was reduce the amount of food to skirt the guidelines rather than providing an actual healthy meal. This isn’t what the regs intended, but it keeps the vendors profits high.

    • But it’s “being done for their own benefit”!  Somehow that makes it okay then?  It’s the same excuse government hands out everytime it oversteps its bounds and strips away a few more personal liberties.   

    • Hey Ted……which one of these delicious entrees you would eat?  Your just another Obama lover in denial.

    • what a dolt—SIEG HEIL!

    • OBTW  food is not “HEALTHIER”,  have you ever seen “sicker” food?

    • Because the Gubmint always knows best!

    • LMFAO – They dictate our lives for our own good yet they do not follow their own rules. SMH

    • YOU need to learn not to agree with people who want to run other people’s lives.The food they eat is the PARENTS’ and SCHOOLS’ responsibility.NOT some unelected elitst who is REGULARLY photographed eating food she won’t allow others

    • Ted you are wrong. The schools should be serving foods that fill our kids stomach until they have dinner later that night. I want my kid to have a choice of what he wants to eat just like I did in the 80′s. When you have a full stomach you study better and get better grades. The FLOTUS has no business forcing this down school districts throats.  It should be up to every school district to decide what to serve. It is absolutely ridiculous that the Feds will withhold govt dollars if you do not follow what they feel is “nutritional food”.

    • liberals know what’s best for the people?  History shows the opposite.  Inspite of the people disagreements, liberalism does not teach, it must force people through the removal of freedoms, like kids free to eat what they want.

  • By the way how awkward that must have been for the pooor little kiddies in the background eating lunch with big Secret Service men and women acting all intense looking around.  weird.  thats really thinking about the kids sticking them at a table with a bunch of SS gorillas

  • I’ll be glad when she’s out of office.

    • most people with a brain stem (NOT DEMOC RATS OF COURSE) WILL BE HAPPEY WHEN BOTH OF THEM TAKE THE BILLIONS THEY STOLE FROM THE TAX PAYERS AND DISSAPEAR ON SOME ISLAND THEY BOUGHT WITH OUR MONEY

  • These are the voters of the future!  So you Liberal/Socialist food police will get none of their support!  Leave the kids’ lunch alone!

  • Too late the queen has spoken.  Eat it and shut up or the SS will come after you.  Heil M.Obama

  • You dumb sh-ts force your “kiddies” to go to public school… you get what you deserve.

    • While I don’t like public schools as a rule, I do understand that some parents don’t have a choice.  A few of us are lucky, but there are a whole lot who aren’t.  Frankly, I like the “money follows the child” model, so parents get to choose where their child will be educated, even if it’s at home.
