In all reality students do need some restrictions on the food, but not to the point where nobody will buy it. Lots of kids purchase school lunch, simply because it 's generally affordable and is expected to be healthy. But not everybody likes this new food. Some students have even decided to skip school lunch as soon as the new meal restrictions were added. In a New York Times article called “Why Students Hate School Lunches” Kate Murphy claims that “...children either toss out the healthier meals or opt to brown-bag it.” This just goes to show how bad the students hate these new lunches!
The school lunches impacting more than just the schools money, it’s impacting the students education and after school activities just like sports teams. First of all ,students are getting bad grades because they aren’t eating anything at school because the school lunches are disgusting. For an example, in a Perspective Flip Book called “School Lunches: Healthy Choices VS. Crowd Pleasers” it states:“The new dietary guidelines left
The last reason, is that it is not good to make school lunches healthier because the government is ignoring parents and saying that parent can’t make the healthy choice for their children. One of the reasons that people agreed is some parents are paying unhealthy school lunches that their kids are eating. In the article it stated “Less Fat, More Veggies”, it said, “It recommends meals containing fewer calories, less fat and salt, and more fruit, vegetables
Stress has become a major issue for high school students. Many students have seven classes, participate in sports, have after school activities, homework, and need to get an adequate amount of sleep each night. Some parents and outside influencers don’t see the benefits of having a longer lunch period for high school students. Students complain about how long school is now but they don 't have enough time outside of school to complete everything they are expected to. While it is understandable that some parents wouldn’t want longer lunches because it could result in safety issues and students having to remain in school 30 minutes longer than the traditional time, longer lunches would give students a chance to complete homework, get help from teachers, and eat a nutritious meal.
On the other hand some people think the schools need to change up the menus. They think that the current school lunches is why we have so many obese kids right now. This is not the case because the children who are obese is not only because of the food they are eating it's because they do not get enough exercise. Changing the school lunches overall would not be beneficial because the food they are eating is not the biggest part of why they are obese. In conclusion schools should not change the lunches because they don't have the power to tell students can or can't eat, they don't have the time and money, and finally because they are not allowed to put a limit on how much a student can eat due to the “No Kid Hungry
Some kids rely on school lunch as their only food for the day. School lunches should be healthy and filling to benefit students. School lunches in the U.S. are some of the worst in the world, this should be improved to benefit students. By improving school lunches it can improve kids performance in class and have them be more productive. By eating a balanced breakfast and lunch it keeps your metabolism going all day.
In a Kmov news channel this article stated that their are about 900 students that get lunch there and thirty to fifty percent of them got their hands on the spoiled milk. Thirty to fifty percent is a really high number in general compared to the quantity of items and students that actually get them. Lunch is a very important meal for students to have because it replenishes students energy so they can go through the rest of their day being wide awake and ready to learn. Changing school lunch can be for the better for school kids and students that are trying to have an education. There are plenty of bad side effects that can happen when eating “bad” school foods.
Are school meals really that unhealthy? Why do so many people want healthier school lunches? Although many students don’t believe that the school lunches are unhealthy, schools should try to make every effort to increase the amount of healthy foods and to decrease the amount of junk food being sold because healthy foods are more nutritious and energy-rich so students can stay focused in class. In addition, much of the American population is obese and the rate of obesity is growing. And finally, junk food leads to other physical and emotional problems.
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
Almost all schools provide students a healthy meal at lunch time. However, not all students prefer eating from the school cafeteria, some might be craving something other than what is provided at school lunches. For example, an ill student would probably want a bowl of hot soup from their favorite restaurant not rice with meat from the school lunch. Having an Open Campus Lunch can help students choose healthier choices out of all the options provided. When students eat a healthy lunch that satisfies them, they will be able to concentrate more in class.
