'#ThanksMichelleObama': Students Tweet School Lunches With Sarcastic Message

First Lady Michelle Obama is continuing to help students eat healthy in schools all over the country, and some students are letting her know what they think. 

In a recent Buzzfeed article, students across the country are taking photos of their lunches and and posting them on social media with the hashtag "#ThanksMichelleObama."

"Hunter Whitney, a student at Wisconsin’s Richmond Center High School, said this dish is called “Spanish rice” and that students aren’t supplied with salt," said Buzzfeed.

The photo Whitney posted is of an orange lunch tray filled with brown mush and an apple. The photo was posted on Twitter.

"Had a very #healthylunch today," Whitney tweeted. "The apple definitely made up for the "mystery mush" #ThanksMichelleObama."

"The lunches, many Thanksgiving-themed, have to comply with the food regulations implemented by the USDA and championed by the first lady, who has taken on the challenge of fighting childhood obesity," Buzzfeed said.

Student Marissa Garrett posted a photo of a modified Thanksgiving lunch with a bowl of turkey drowned in gravy, a spoonful of stuffing, green beans, and jello.

"So disappointed in this modified Thanksgiving lunch.. @MichelleObama #ThanksMichelleObama," she posted on Twitter.

Buzzfeed said, "high schoolers, like senior Jess Sency, have been using the power of the internet to show off exactly what those regulations look like."

Sency posted a photo of a brown scoop, and said "that this dish was supposed to be bakes beans."

"Yum school lunches #thanksmichelleobama," she tweeted.
