eachers’ Video Spoofs New Healthy School Lunch Guidelines
Tuesday, September 18, 2012
Two northwest Kansas teachers are gaining some Internet notoriety after posting a spoof video that pokes fun at the new federal school lunch health guidelines.
The Sharon Springs teachers remade the song “We Are Young” by the band Fun - changing the title phrase phrase to “We Are Hungry” in a video they posted on YouTube. The teachers say they made the video after receiving complaints from students about the food they now receive in their school lunches.
The video shows students stuffing their lockers with junk food and athletes fainting during practice from lack of food. A graphic on the video urges viewers to contact the White House and the United States Department of Agriculture to share concerns with the new meal guidelines.
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act is designed to help children eat healthier by providing them with school meals based on the latest nutrition research. The new meals offer children both fruits and vegetables every day of the week, whole grain-rich foods, fat-free or low-fat milk, limited calories based on age and reduced levels of unhealthy fats and sodium.

I’m well familiar with the song and that was great!
This monstrous piece of government spit prints out on 104 pages and pretty much just spends all those words saying that the USDA can do whatever it wants to.
Section 20 says that the USDA will establish the nutrition requriements... that’s all. It empowers bureaucrats somewhere to tell you what your kids eat. If the USDA says sand will do, sand it will be. If they say grease by straw, grease by straw it will be.
Blanche Lincoln from Arkansas introduced this mess. I’m glad she is gone.
This is twenty kinds of awesome! LOL!!!
