I was reading something similar - due to calorie limits on school lunches, some students are buying two lunches (at twice the cost) in order to get full.

Yes, and I also read that they're allowed extra fruits and vegetables, but they don't want those.

I loved Jon Stewart's take on it - essentially, it was "oh, so school lunches are terrible? Who knew?".

Is 800 calories (I believe that's what I read the guidelines give a high schooler) really not enough to be full on? I find that hard to believe, but I'm willing to be wrong.
