Schools aren't the only place kids eat. If schools don't have something kids like, they'll just go to the McDonald's across the street and the school will lose money.

I think the real issue here is that parents need to be more responsible when it comes to their kids' nutritional needs.

Take five minutes to help your child pack a lunch instead of slipping them some money to buy some packaged crap.

This. I mean, parents should worry about their kids health. It doesn't take that long to pack a simple lunch. I'm homeschooled, so I wouldn't know much, but really, you just let your kid get fat? :qstr:

My mum works as a lunch supervisor at my old middle school and she always sees kids throwing out their whole lunch. Then they either buy a burger or they just don't eat.

She always says she'd rather us bring something home if we don't like it 'cause then at least she knows we don't like it and there's no point in packing it if we're just gonna throw it out. Then, she tries to find out what we do like so she can pack us that. For example, she would give me juice in one of those tuperwear sippy cup things. At 13, I did not want to drink out of a sippy cup. So she started buying me juice boxes instead but made sure they were healthy ones.

Honestly, kids are going to like at least something from each food group. My brother was the pickiest eater ever especially with fruit but the few fruits he did like were oranges, raspberries, and strawberries so my mum would just give him a shit load of oranges, raspberries, and strawberries.

They should have healthy options for those who want healthy, but good food choices start at home, with the parents making the right choices for their children and teaching them how to do the same.

I have talked to people and you know what kids do when they can only choose "healthy" food? They go home and pig out on the tasty food there. So either way, we lose because parents aren't teaching their kids to make healthy food choices and all.

Also, kids can bring lunches from home instead of paying the school to feed them.

I think they should have better food. I'm currently in high school at the moment and instead of giving us better food, my school if just giving us lesser amounts of greasy food to cut back on calories. Calories are fine if they are from good foods, but when its something from greased soaked pizza and a mac and cheese that looks like it has yellow colored glue in it instead of cheese, there are some issues. I refuse to eat the food at the school I go to. I often have just a small fiber one granola bar; but while that may keep me threw the day until dinner, it wont keep athletes for very long since they'll burn it up quickly. I read that someone posted that we'll just go to McDonald's. We only have a Subway in town. The closest McDonald's is a thirty minute drive away.

schools should have healthier meal choices, with out a doubt. think about the large population of children who are living under the poverty level and rely on the free meal programs for a large part of their nutritional needs.

Yes. I don't see how this is a debate. I do understand students can get unhealthy food elsewhere, but that'll be on their/their parents' dime, not the school's. I think many children eat unhealthful food, because it's easily obtained. If the children had to make fried chicken, french fries, and onion rings themselves by scratch, would they eat that everyday? I doubt it. But it's so easy to get it at school cafeterias nowadays. It's sad. I understand that the government subsidizes (?) the food, so it's cheaper, so it's easier for the schools to get it. It's still sad. I think students deserve better.

They should serve healthier food, but the schools also need to take children's needs into account.

With some of the new initiatives out there, students who get school lunches and eat all the food are going hungry, because they're 6' star athletes. There's not enough calories for them.

Also, I disagree with the USDA's food pyramid; starchy carbs should not be getting such a huge serving in proportion to vegetables, fruits, and proteins.

Anyway, schools should offer healthier options, and they should be options that taste good (fresh seasonal vegetables, instead of canned green beans). There are parents that don't care, but that doesn't mean the schools should also not care.

Students should have the option of getting additional servings of healthy food (a second piece of chicken or more salad, but no seconds on cake), and teachers/aides should not police the lunches that parents pack for their children.
