School lunch standards have changed—and not for the better.
This was evident recently in a Twitter campaign using the hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama. Students took photos of their mostly inedible-looking lunch trays of food.

We recently asked, “What does your school lunch look like?” You responded with horror stories of children and grandchildren coming home hungry and seeing tons of food wasted. Some of you even refused to eat school lunches while visiting school on Grandparents Day.
One person posted the menu at the elite Sidwell Friends School, where President Obama’s girls attend, to showcase the striking differences between their food choices and those offered to children in public schools.
While some of you did say school lunches offered a variety of tasty options, the majority of people were disappointed in what’s being served to children these days. See below.
