The video said that:
1. Meals are 750-850
2. Active teens need 2000-5000 calories per day.

Is the only food they eat at school, with no way to bring a lunch or snacks from
home?

Since only active teens need higher calories, 750 calories for lunch is over one-third of the amount one should eat in a day. After all, I think it's pretty obvious most teens aren't active.

750 > 666

This. Seriously, do they really think that they need to eat 5000 calories per day? 750 calories is almost double of the amount of calories I consume for lunch.

pretty sure it really depends upon activity level and your size.

some people might need 1600 cals/day... some people 2500..

plus... school food sucks, so they probably just eat the cookies
This means they need more cookies :)

Even if they need 2500 calories per day, they do not need over 750 calories for lunch.

Nobody need 5000 calories per day. These guys are either retarded or want to be obese.

Athletes need at least 3-4k calories a day and need a lot for lunch which is right before practice. Phelps eats what 12k a day, high school athletes could easily need half that. The 2000 calories a day are for inactive average sized adults with low metabolism

That Bill name is one of the most effective political propaganda names I've seen (i.e. P.A.T.R.I.O.T, Affordable Care etc).

Who the hell would, prima facie, reject something that says "EAT HEALTHY?"

Athletes, not teen athletes, who practice for two hours a day, not eight.

Regardless, people seem to be missing the fact that one could buy two lunches and/or bring their own food. Problem solved.

Athletes can bring their own food, which is not restricted by the arbitrary food guidelines, unlike school food. Few athletes can use school food and be good. A student can bring two sandwiches or whatever they need from home, or pay another student to do so with that school lunch money. From personal experience, I know that two ham sandwiches are much better than two slices of pizza for an after sport activity.

And the video was creative, but lame.

If I don't eat like 6-7 thousand calories a day, I lose weight. Even right now when I'm not really doing anything...I lost weight. I can't afford to lose anymore weight. :/

Bs, give kid s all the food the need and let them control their own caloric intake. Also I was talking about teen athletes, they need 3-5k at least, Olympians like Phelps need 12k

Kids eating 750 calories for lunch alone is ridiculous.... Football players who workout all day and have to run mile after mile don't eat 750 calories in one meal. If you can't live off of that for 8 hours theres something wrong with you.

Lol. This was on 20/20 last night. Ironically, the person who came up with the idea for the video was a teacher.

But yeah, few people need 4000 or more calories a day...those that do can just bring extra. A lot of people nowadays have subsidized lunches, so its generally affordable.

I'm telling you, 750 is nothing, there are 500 in a few cartons of milk maybe being a giant athlete throws my judgement but 1000 calories a meal isnt a lot

You're making that up. There are 122 calories in a carton of milk, not 500.

The salad that I eat for lunch every day is 350-380 calories (depending on what I get). There's no way that a plate of salad has as many calories as a carton of school-sized milk.
