Karla Luetzow's curator insight, October 17, 2013 2:27 PM

High school students show their reaction to the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010, in this video. It is made by high schools and uses popular music to highlight their negative prospective of this mandate by changing the popular song We Are Young by FUN to We Are Hungry. Intermingling facts about the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 to adding bits of comedy to the video, it is a creative, funny way to protest the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act.

This video can easily be related to the scoop about high school protests. This video was produced by high school students and has a negative connotation of the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010. Following what the previous article mentioned, these high school students believe the amount of food that they are being fed is not enough to fuel their hectic days. I enjoyed that this video pointed out that many students are involved in after school activities that burn up calories. In the video, a girl is displayed passing out at volleyball practice for being too hungry. I never thought about the calorie cut off as hurting anyone, but this video enlightened me on a new view on the topic. I would be interested if it could be a possibility if athletes could get extra helpings of food beyond the calorie cut off of 850 calories during in season training. Overall, I found this video to be light and humorous, but still informative.

Summertime Sweet Corn

Summertime Sweet Corn | Nutrition, Food Safety and Food Preservation | Scoop.it

I grew up on a farm surrounded by fields of corn and soybeans. We had a garden filled with tomatoes, green beans, bell peppers, and watermelon. But my favorite summertime memory was selling our family's sweet corn on the roadside in our small town. A hot job of sitting in the sun was well worth the few bucks my brother and I took home. After a hard day's work, we always came home to a meal with corn on the cob, and not once did I ever grow tired of it!
