Are school lunches leaving you hungry?

 
When the federal government passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, they intended to curb obesity and boost nutrition provided to kids across America through the government-funded school lunch program. Some of the guidelines, which went into effect in August, restrict the amount of carbohydrates and proteins students can purchase as part of their lunch. Though active teens require between 2,000 and 5,000 calories a day to get through school and sports practice, school lunch policy currently limits teens to lunches of 750 to 850 calories. And that, according to a video produced by a group of students at a Kansas high school, is leaving them hungry.

 

 

Watch the video below…


 

You probably recognize the song being parodied—Fun.’s “We Are Young”—with one substantial change: new lyrics written by Wallace County High School English teacher Linda O’Connor, reports Time. She and a group of her students created the video to show how the government’s new school lunch policies are negatively affecting them. While the group is vehement in its support of the increased emphasis on fresh fruits and veggies, it believes this one-size-fits-all mandate doesn’t take into account the varying needs of students across the U.S. Their goal? To repeal the legislation.

 

Have you been affected by the new school lunch policy, sweeties? What do you think of the video, and how do you think the problem should be fixed?

If you have a habit of eating a “grab-and-go” breakfast, make sure you choose one that's high in protein, like swapping butter for almond butter on your toast.
