Also “school meals in other countries fascinate us because they reflect a society 's true food culture, as well as its regard for its children” (Siegel). If the community goes cheap on our lunches other countries assume that this is how our culture eats, but in reality people eat big meals at home or go out for dinner. In some cases a school lunch or even breakfast is all a child might get that day. The food service should make sure they get enough to eat as well as all the nutrients by spending just a little more on foods that kids will to eat. Therefore “eating habits, like many other habits, are formed in childhood” (Good,Engler-Stringer).
