‪#‎ThanksMichelleObama‬ - Students Unhappy With Healthy School Lunches Or Political Gimmicks?

Posted in: , , ,

#ThanksMichelleObama is the sarcastic hashtag that young students are using to set Twitter on fire as they blame first lady Michelle Obama for their school lunches might obey new food regulations she championed, but which they say looks bad and tastes worse.

First lady Michelle Obama has made one of her personal campaigns that of getting childhood obesity down using healthy eating as an option. The other avenue is getting children to move more by being more physically active. But it all starts with what goes in the mouth so the first lady has worked with those in education to get the food served in schools healthier.

But the children seem not to be liking their modified menus for their school lunches. Those old enough to tweet are speaking out on social media and calling their food all manner of awful.

Posted in: ,

These are the fun parts of being a parent that make me look forward to being one. This viral video is of a dad who starts off annoyed as he scolds his sons for covering themselves in paint. But I guess the look on their painted faces as they realize they're in trouble just got to him in the end and he couldn't stop himself from laughing at them. They even join him at some point.

The dad starts by asking, "Who's idea was this? Did you think this was a good idea?", and along the line, one of the boys ask if they have paint in their hair. That was when dad couldn't keep it together anymore. But they still get their punishment, though :)
