Have you ever wondered if you could ever change the school lunches in the Public schools? Well you’re not the only one, many other people thought about changing the way you eat at lunch and started to change it.

One thing schools can do to help get better school lunches is offer more of a variety. Some schools give each student one specific meal a day, but adding side foods like vegetables and fruit really help. In 2008, and analysis of school lunches concluded that school cafeterias don’t offer much fruit to their students, and that can be a real problem in someone’s health. Luckily, the unhealthy school lunches are getting more and more awareness. School cafeterias are bringing in a better variety in foods such as, salad bars, and different fruits for the students to choose from.
The open lunch idea would give a chance for kids to take a break and go out for some fresh air and forget about school for an hour, to get something to eat, go to restaurants, go home, and even do some homework. Throughout the day, kids get more and more irritable, making teaching and learning hard for students. I think that students should be able to stay at school for lunch or go home for lunch. Open lunch would benefit as well, the teachers and staff because they also need a break. This time would let the teacher put in grades, catch up on grading, and give them a breather as well, they would have this time because the lunch hour would be a whole hour, not just twenty-five
Currently, only black, white, red, blue, and nude shoes are allowed to be worn. Many students would like to be able to wear colors on tennis shoes too.Another rule that should be changed is the eating policy. Many students get hungry in class and find it hard to stay focused. Some may not have breakfast in the morning because there was no time. Eating in class would be a good rule to have.

According to ‘Food Allergies: Are Schools Doing Enough?” by Lisa Kadane, children can die within 2-3 minutes when they are exposed to food they’re allergic to. This makes it very unsafe for them in the cafeteria because many lunches have hidden ingredients, and because of cross contact between foods (Kadane). Schools should take action by removing common allergens from lunch, stating the ingredients in the lunches they serve, and by practicing good cleaning procedures. Many schools are failing to keep our children safe because they do not have epi pens for allergic reactions. We must change this, schools don’t have lunches for kids with allergies or medication to give to them during reactions to help save their lives.
One female student states that the changes the National School Program have made school lunches are beneficial. She states the program teaches healthy eating habits, and took some getting used to. A male student states that school do not make the healthy foods appetizing. He also says that until schools make the foods appetizing, foods will be thrown in the trash or students will bring their own lunches.

In Solochek’s article, he interviewed regular students and athletes who said they either by a second lunch, or buy from an outside source such as a vending machine. Parents are outraged at this situation because they have to provide their kids with extra money, or food to make up for what the schools aren’t doing. The students that have to put up with these horrible meals want to be heard, and in order to do that they have two good options: voice their opinions, or throw the food away.

The lunch we have now in the schools now these days are cheaply made and governed by the government. We need food that tastes good so are brains can function properly the way they need too. Students need their brain to be functioning right so students can pay attention in class.
Every year, more and more food is wasted and school lunches because nobody thinks they are good anymore. The quality of food goes down, less students eat, and more wish they could go and eat somewhere, anywhere, else. If schools were to add off-campus lunches, however, that would all improve. While off-campus lunches may promote unsupervised behavior, going off campus for lunches is a viable option because it is cheaper for the school, cheaper for the students, and makes sure everyone will eat.
