High School Students Speak Out on School Lunch Rules
October 5, 2012
In the shadow of new school lunch regulations put in place by the "Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010," a group of high school students has now made a parody video that is sweeping the internet. The song, "We Are Hungry," pokes fun at the serious issue many agricultural groups are also speaking up against. They say that the food intake, especially the two ounces of meat protein, now limited by the new regulations is not enough to keep children alert and prepared for physical activity.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture came out this week defending the new school meal nutrition guidelines because they are based on science. The new are available at www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/Governance/Legislation/CNR_2010.htm.
