Students are passing out from hunger due to braindead new federal guidelines for lunch which reduce portion sizes drastically and cut way back on protein. Students at Wallace County High School in Sharon Springs, Kansas have created this funny video about this latest attempt by dimbulbs in DC to mandate absurdities.
Among other things, the new rules decree that lunches should be no more than 850 calories for high-schoolers. When I was a teenager, 850 calories was a snack.
One student posted about her meager lunch which consisted of a cheese-stuffed bread stick, three slices of apple, and raw spinach. This lunch is so insubstantial that an elderly woman in a wheelchair might complain it’s not enough too. Teenagers generally need 2,000-5,000 calories a day, especially when they’ll presumably be doing PE and sports workouts after lunch. But that apparently doesn’t matter to whatever great minds in Washington DC decided these inadequate portions are sufficient for public schools. But then, they probably send their kids to private schools.
“I asked why the sauce had no meat and I was informed that due to the breadsticks containing cheese, the meat would put us over the guidelines for protein.”
“Now think of a high school boy who works out at least three hours a day, not including farm work. … I’m furious. The “cheese” inside the breadstick is approximately three bites. This is ridiculous.”
