Students thank Michelle Obama sarcastically on twitter

In 2010, Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, supported by Michelle Obama, had been passed by the White House. The aim was to improve the nutritional value of school lunches. The hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama is now being used by the students to tweet photos of their school lunches.

Some students are not satisfied by the food being served at the schools. Others are using the hashtag to express gratitude to the first lady for supporting the healthy eating in students. Government officials are saying that data suggests that high percentage of students is satisfied with their school lunches.

Some kids posted photos of appetizing lunches against the critics. People even joked that students are not mature enough to complain about their school lunches.

"Independent research shows that a majority of American kids like healthier school lunches, the number of students that like their meals is growing, and that updated meal standards are working to help improve students' health", said U. S. Department of Agriculture spokesman Cullen Schwarz.

He said most meals are not that bad as shown in the photos. The Department of Agriculture administers the school meals program.

Schwarz said that full servings of fruits and vegetables at lunch are given to students as many photos tweeted using the hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama do not show the full range of choices offered to students.

The first lady said this summer that she will fight to make sure that every kid in the country gets nutritional food that they can have in their schools.
