Whenever you want a healthy meal, school lunches aren't the first thing that come to mind. School lunches most of the time are unhealthy. I've eaten a burger from school and found that the meat inside is pink and a bit cold. Plus, the "burger" doesn't even taste like a real burger. It tastes a bit cold and stale. The school's lunches may taste ok, but they're nothing compared to real food. Our lunches aren't even healthy. We could be eating a salad once in a while or a veggie burger. Sometimes, the only real lunch a child gets is at school, so why not feed them healthy food?

Healthier food is often pricey and our school doesn't have a lot of money to afford these choices. That's why I think the school should sell things that students like to fund the cafeteria so they have more money to buy healthier foods. This would benefit students. The students would be more filled up and have more energy to learn. The cafeteria should consider the idea for next year.

While it is true that school lunches aren't the best tasting things on the planet, our nutrition was in mind when they made the lunch guidelines for schools across the country. I understand where you're coming from Olivia, but my advice for eating school lunch would be...:

Don't get anything that comes in a plastic bag or that has been heated up in a bag. Usually, it isn't the best choice there is. Try to also get lots of the fresh foods they have on the fruit and veggie bar everyday. Or, if you want, you could just bring your own lunch to school everyday. And lastly, although I don't really recommend this one, you could just not eat at all during school hours. I hope that helped, sorry if I sounded mean! I wasn't trying to be! :)

Olivia, I can relate to what you are saying about this. School lunches aren't always a great choice but there are ways to get around it too. I agree with what you said about bringing your own lunch or making other choices.

You are right Olivia. I think it would be a very good idea to sell food at lunch or anytime to fund the lunch room. It would certainly improve focus in class and overall goodness. I know sometimes I don't eat because school lunch is to nasty. Our school can afford iPads and new laptops but they can't afford to feed their own students a good meal?
