Across the nation school children are complaining about the pathetic scraps they’re getting thanks to Food Commissar Michelle Obama.
A viral video made by student athletes in Kansas criticizes the amount of food they get at school under the new federal school lunch policy.
In the video, the students parody the song “We Are Young”. Instead, they sing “We Are Hungry.” The video had amassed about 540,000 views by Thursday.
Debbi Beauvais, is the Gates-Chili supervisor for school nutrition services and is also a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She says under The Health, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, public schools had to change their portion sizes. Schools are also offering fewer proteins and carbohydrates and more fruits and vegetables.
She says that technically, schools aren’t serving less food, just fewer calories.
According to the new federal guidelines, a high school student can eat 750 to 850 calories for a standard lunch they buy at school. Some students, like the high school athletes in Kansas, say that’s not enough to sustain them.
Beauvais says she sees why the students may say that.
“The guidelines are meant for the average child in the age range,” Beauvais says. “The guidelines aren’t really addressing the needs of someone petite, who would think it’s way too much food, and they don’t address the needs of a 6’4″ athlete.”
Avon parent Noreen Whelehan says the school lunches are not fulfilling enough for her daughter who is not an athlete.
Meanwhile, at a fundraiser in Chicago, the overbearing Nanny Stater shoveled pizza and popcorn into her piehole.
The remarks came in what could be Obama’s last pre-election appearance in her hometown. She was here to raise money at a pair of fund-raising events and tape a TV show. She also found time to enjoy her favorite pizza, from Italian Fiesta Pizzeria, and some Garrett’s Popcorn.
She also took time to remind people nobody got where they are on their own. A few hundred million Americans would disagree.
“No one is where they are on their own,” she said.
Then this howler:
She said the president was handed an economic mess when he first took office.
“Instead of pointing fingers, instead of placing blame, Barack got to work,” she said at the second event. That won loud whistles and cheers. The crowd then drowned her out with cheers when she began talking about jobs the president had created.
Instead of placing blame? What planet is this woman living on?
Here’s a look at some hungry kids.
Meanwhile, kids in New Jersey plan a protest.
