For years, students at public schools across America have been rejecting an overhaul of their lunch rooms prompted by the First Lady-backed Healthy Hunger-Free Kids initiative.

Pupils argue that the 2010 law which drastically changed the menus of school cafeterias participating in the National School Lunch Program has led to smaller, calorically-inadequate meals.

In fact, the law was recently also found to be contributing to less children eating, and to higher costs, according to a recent survey conducted by the National School Boards Association.

“NSBA’s survey of school leaders shows that since that law went into effect in 2010, 83.7 percent of school districts saw an increase in plate waste, 81.8 percent had an increase in cost, and 76.5 percent saw a decrease in participation by students,” a press release on the NSBA website states.

Sure the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act has been a monumental failure, but can the food really be as bad as it’s made out to be?

With the advent of Twitter and smart phones, students are now able to voice their meal opinions in real time. Do you think kids should be fed the following food items?

Thank you, Michelle Obama. No really. Thank you. Us athletes are just completely full after a lunch like this.

Students also issued pointed criticisms of Michelle O’s attempt to fill vending machines with healthy foods:

Despite children across the nation rejecting the lunch room changes, Mrs. Obama has defended the program claiming that her critics were “playing politics with our kids’ future.”
