Students Slam Low-Calorie Lunches in New Viral Video, "We Are Hungry"
Clip shows the results of the limitations in carbs and proteins
Michelle Obama's child obesity health initiative isn't hitting home with some Kansas high schoolers who, in a new four-minute YouTube video, slammed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 which the First Lady championed. Titled "We Are Hungry," the clip is a spoof of this summer's anthem "We Are Young," by group Fun. It opens with a reminder that active teens require 2000 to 5000 calories per day to adequately meet their growth and energy needs. The Act limits the calorie count of school lunches to 850. Students in the video are seen passing out in the classroom, on the football field and in the gym, and sneaking out of class to a locker stashed with snacks. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act aims to encourage healthy eating, and also calls for more fruit and vegetables and fewer sweet and fatty foods. (Huffington Post)
