Mukwonago High students boycott cafeteria food over smaller portions

Here in Wisconsin, federally-imposed lunch limits are leaving students hungry, and 70% of them have boycotted the less fulfilling portions:

MUKWONAGO — Students at a southeastern Wisconsin high school are boycotting cafeteria food over what they say is a federally-mandated one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition.

School districts across the country have revised lunch menus to meet federal requirements for more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Nick Blohm is a 210-pound linebacker on the Mukwonago High School football team. Blohm says the 850-calorie cap on his school lunch isn’t enough for him. He gets hungry before three hours of football practice.
