TULSA, Okla. – Social media has proven to be the most effective way for students to bring attention to their new “healthy” school lunches.
“A Skiatook school came under fire after a picture of two small breadsticks, marinara sauce, milk and an apple was posted on Facebook,” News On 6 reports.
The school defended itself by saying that’s what the student chose to take.
“Chicken nuggets, with broccoli, beans and milk,” student Promise Fleming says. “It was awful.”
Another student, A’mika Ware, tells the news station, “It’s not fully cooked and it makes my stomach hurt.”
Those students aren’t alone. Others have been taking to Twitter to show their lunches, with one even including the hashtag “#ThanksObama.”

School administrators have admitted there are problems with the new rules.
“I know they are,” Chickasha superintendent David Cash says of kids going hungry.
“There is no doubt about that. My own kid comes home and the first thing he does is raid the refrigerator.”
