Students Choose to Go Hungry Rather Than Eat Healthy School Lunches
A school lunch program aimed at keeping children healthier may be backfiring. New federal guidelines offer children more vegetable-heavy meals, but some are choosing hunger over a healthy lunch!
The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act was championed by First Lady Michelle Obama, along with the USDA, and the idea is to give kids more fruit, veggies, and whole grains instead of fatty, processed foods.
Kids are now pushing back, and some Massachusetts school students have even created a black market for chocolate syrup, according to Trace Gallagher. In Kansas, some students recorded a parody video turning the song 'We Are Young' into 'We Are Hungry.'
The USDA has responded with a spokesperson saying, “One thing I think we need to keep in mind as kids say they’re still hungry is that many children aren’t used to eating fruits and vegetables at home, much less school. So it’s a change in what they are eating. If they are still hungry, it’s that they are not eating all the food that’s being offered.”
