I personally felt really bad for my friend i of course helped her make smarter choices and no what to pick and put on her plate. Now she is as healthy as me and is doing all sort of sports. The girl that sits at the table next to er no longer calls her fat or says rude comments to her. This is something that would change by making the school lunches healthier there would be no more bullying and people getting made fun of. If we made the school lunches healthier there would be more active kids during recess, and gym.
Although changing the school lunch to a healthier, better option would be a good idea, you should not change the lunch from what it is now. Even though the kids would be eating healthier, most of the kids that eat lunch now would not buy the new lunch, also kids not buying the new lunch means not as much money comes into the school, and if you want kids to be healthier all you have to do is give them more time to be active. To begin with, if you changed the lunch at school a lot of the kids that eat lunch now would not eat lunch if you changed it. The new lunches would not taste as good as the lunches they serve now. Taking away some of the kids favorite foods is not a good idea.
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.
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.
So why can’t the teens go out for lunch too? Well often times teenagers are seen as irresponsible, but this is not always the case. There are tons of responsible teens out there that could handle leaving school for lunch. Sometime the teens don’t even want to go out to eat, sometimes they just need a break to recharge. Off-campus lunch provides money for our community, the students mature and learn to become responsible adults, not to mention they get a nice break from their learning environment.

As opposed to buying food, upgrading their house, or saving the money for later, it goes to waste at the bar and gives Angela no other option but to resort to asking charity organizations for assistance. Frank’s mom is another contributing factor in the waste of money: “There may be a lack of tea or bread in the house but Mam and Dad always manage to get the fags, the Wild Woodbines” (McCourt 138). If his parents were thinking in the best interest of their children, then they would realize that giving up some of their luxuries would be necessary. It is not fair to ask their kids to starve, and claim that they have
After considering how I feel when I am hungry, I cannot imagine how a child must feel after missing several meals. Establishing a rapport with children establishes that we care. Building relationships based on trust, love, and commitment makes a big difference especially in the lives of neediest children. It is our priority as individuals who are working with children in need, to send the message that we care. Organizing a pantry, so that a school is able to provide snacks and meals, is one of the best ways to ensure a necessity for students in need.
Although students shall be punished for their actions, schools should not suspend students for their bad behaviors, they shall be punished in other ways, because they like not having to go to school so they will act up more, they will miss a lot of important lessons in their classes, and parents would have to figure out a plan for their child to stay home all day while they are at work. Most students don’t like going to school, if they get in trouble and are punished with having to stay home from school, they
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
As a senior at Patrick Henry High School (PHHS), I am greatly concerned with the inadequate fulfillment of public school children’s dietary needs and the poor quality of school lunches. The lack of the necessary components from the meals provided by the district shows the scarcity of care towards students. By purchasing local, fresh produce from San Diegan farms, the nutritional value of meals would be greatly enriched; furthermore, it would lead to a reduction of costs and an effort to prevent childhood obesity. Poor eating habits instigate the enervated physiques and well-beings of students. In order to deter from these detrimental results, support from the district is crucial.
I believe that school lunch can be both tasty and healthy because I know it 's not impossible. Many people make great tasting healthy food everyday, so why can 't a school does it. It´s just how it 's made that makes it better. In a New York Times article, I read that a boy named Malik Barrows stated,” Before there was no taste and no flavor, now there´s no taste, no flavor, and it 's healthy, which makes it worse¨. I believe that if schools, maybe seasoned their food a
This quote shows that the reason we switched to Aramark is because we were looking to save money with Aramark instead of losing money with our own food services. They also want to keep giving the students quality food and service, but has the food really been up to the students standards? Mason Canfield, a 7th grader at East Hills Middle School states, "It costs $4 - $5 to buy lunch in EHMS, and I think it is not worth the price because it 's a small portion and the food is dry such as the
Schools continue to eliminate time for recess and replace gym class with other academic classes such as driver’s education or health class. These other classes are important and necessary, but could utilize a student’s study hall time, instead of taking the place of the only calorie burning class students have throughout their day. Fighting obesity through changes in the school lunch program has not been very successful because more and more students are bringing their lunches from home. These lunches from home includes foods that children shouldn’t have as a regular meal, such as chips and Little Debbie snacks. Additionally, we are in school for an education, which would make one think that healthier eating habits begin with
Students would do a lot better and feel a lot better if the school had a better lunch menu. Having food that is unhealthy is bad for you and having food that doesnt taste very good is quite pathetic; however, if the food was helathier, it could help students in many ways. Help that is needed in the world today. Especially considering the youth are the ones who will one day be running this
