And They Wonder Why This Is a Problem

Son told me last night that his health teacher advised the students that seventh grade boys should eat a diet with 3000 calories per day, and that seventh grade girls should eat 2000 calories per day.

Upon further reflection, I may need to take a more active role in my school district's educational direction.

Ummm... Hmm. 3500 calories = 1 pound of fat, no? So, allowing for growth and extracurricular activities, I'm guessing that gives Son about 500 extra calories per day, or a new pound of fat every week?

And the girls are starving themselves to death. Nice.

Assholes. You really do have to stay on their asses about everything.
