(NaturalNews) Outraged over mandatory new school lunch guidelines that restrict caloric intake to a mere 850 calories per meal, as well as cut out all sorts of common foods in the process, a groundswell of public school students has taken to social media in protest of Michelle Obama's infamous school lunch overhaul. reports on Twitter "tweets," Instagram photos and other complaints popping up all across social media showing paltry lunch plates with barely a morsel of food on them.

One young man holding what appears to be a bleached flour tortilla with a small piece of processed meat and a slice of cheese on it tweeted, "Thanks Michelle Obama," obviously disturbed by what he was served as a supposed lunch meal. Another photo posted to Twitter shows a small carton of "1% Lowfat Milk" accompanying what appears to be a dried-out piece of breaded chicken hugged by a white flour bun -- and nothing else.

"All we get for lunch today," reads the caption for this gem of a meal. "Thank you Michelle Obama."

Another photo captioned with an expletive shows a hot dog bun filled with cheese and something that resembles fried onions, minus any sort of meat. Next to this processed sandwich of sorts are three small cherry tomatoes and a carton of pasteurized, homogenized and likely hormone- and antibiotic-ridden carton of reduced fat milk.

"You call this a f***ing 'lunch?'" asks the student, tagging both Barack and Michelle's Twitter handles so they will see it.

Even the mother of a student who was visiting her daughter for lunch snapped a photo of a mostly empty cafeteria tray containing the equivalent of a McDonald's hamburger with no cheese, a packet of ketchup and half -- yes, half -- of a kiwi. Three of the six sections on the food tray are empty and clean, suggesting that no food items had been placed there for the meal.

"[M]y school lunch while eating with my daughter," tweeted the mother at Michelle. "Only other choice was a scoop of salad. This is sad!"

Government prohibition of cafeteria food creates black market for what kids really want

The stated goal of the lunch overhaul, which was birthed out of the so-called "Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act," was to improve the nutrition of students by weeding out junk foods and replacing them with healthier options. But in practice, the restrictions have done the exact opposite, leaving students hungry because of less food and, in most cases, food that is still unhealthy.

"I know a lot of my friends who are just drinking a jug of milk for their lunch," said one middle school student to about the consequences of the program. "And they are not getting a proper meal."

Conditions have gotten so bad at many schools, in fact, that some students are starting to smuggle outside food into their cafeterias to sell to other students. This emerging black market, of course, is the direct consequence of a government-imposed food prohibition, which follows in the footsteps of other government-imposed prohibitions such as the one on alcohol, which was many years ago abolished, and the one on cannabis, which is in the process of being abolished.

"How do they expect us to go through the day and work hard when they give us smaller portions and we're hungry?" asks 13-year-old Ashley Chaneco of New Bedford, Massachusetts, where students are reportedly now smuggling in things like chocolate syrup to flavor their plain, processed milk.
