High school students protest new lunch limits
MUKWONAKO, Wis. –
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.
Nick Blohm is a 210-pound linebacker on the Mukwonago High School football team. Blohm said the 850-calorie cap on his school lunch isn’t enough for him. He said he gets hungry before three hours of football practice.
About 70 percent of the 830 Mukwonago students who normally buy lunch boycotted it Monday.
