If students start packing their own lunch and not eating the cafeteria lunch then the school will be wasting food and possibly even money because the students don't want to eat it. Parents on the other hand might wonder why their child is coming home always hungry and it would be because the child doesn't like the new lunch menu at school. Then the school will have angry parents at their office desk yelling and complaining about the menu being changed because their child is going all day starving due to them not liking the food. Some of the students might blame it on the cafeteria workers when its not their fault at all, which could lead to the lunch lady's to quit their job or start complaining to. Everyone has a different opinion but this one is mine School lunches should defiantly stay the same no matter what anyone says. Some schools and counties believe it is what's best for the children because it's healthier. When really all the change is doing is making things worse. When the students favorite foods are taken away and they get mad and start cussing and getting in trouble parents wont be happy , or even when the child gets upset or most likely
When it comes to how the students feel about this change, there have been many disagreements about the new school lunches. It is reported that many students have begun to bring their own lunches to school or have chosen not to eat. This outrage has been caught by news channels including US News and Fox News, which shows the reaction of students and families regarding the change of school lunches. It is said that students have begun declining lunches but according to Turner & Chaloupka (2014), “Although 13.7% of respondents ‘‘strongly agreed’’ that at first students complained about the meals, 63.2% also agreed or strongly agreed that most students are no longer concerned about the meals” (Turner & Chaloupka, p. 353). In other words, in the beginning of the study, students were complaining about the school lunches that were given but after they became more familiar with it, they complained less.
Imagine a school cafeteria with delicious food, healthy lunches, and all on a small budget. Now imagine that same cafeteria but with not delicious, not nutritious food, and tons of money wasted. Which would you choose? Unfortunately, prairie elementary school’s cafeteria is much like the latter. Both the taste and nutritional value of this food is very bad. Also, too much money is spent on these half eaten lunches. This really needs to change.
For all the cuts that have been made to school foods, six percent has not been a big decrease. School lunches don’t provide any nutritional value for the kids. The purpose for a school lunch is to provide kids with a dependable lunch that has good proportional amounts and nutrition value. The obesity rates need to drop higher and faster in the next ten years if they want to make cuts out of our meals and the meals need to be proportioned to size.
Most students don 't think the school lunches are very good. In fact at the Thompson school district teamed up with colorado state University and did a survey on how students like school lunches, and it showed that 93% of students would like a better lunch. 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. Grades would probably be better in the long run. Kids wouldn 't be crabby all the time I don 't think, most of them anyway.
In the newspaper article, “No Lunch Left Behind,” by Alice Waters and Katrina Heron, the authors inform the audience, “But food distributed by the National School Lunch Program contains some of the same ingredients found in fast food and the resulting meals routinely fail to meet basic nutritional standards. Yet this is how the government continues to ‘help’ feed millions of American schoolchildren, a great many of them from low-income households”(4). Waters and Heron argue school programs provide unhealthy food on a daily basis, which accustom the students to not having a choice, yet to eat it and not starve. Students may not realize that the food being served is technically as bad as going to a junk food restaurant. The fast food industry is constantly improving everything to get people to come back and order the “new,” that will benefit them in many ways. Fast food chains tend to always make their prices cheap and try to give the customers more bank for their buck, yet those calories aren’t helping one bit. People would think it’d be healthier to eat at school, though many students don’t like the school food and choose not to eat, therefore being hungry all day, disturbing the ability to pay attention in class. A student is expected to put their 100% in doing their best in school, with that said, if one does not have meals that energize them to keep going, how do teachers expect
To start off, what if I asked if you have ever felt that your school provided lunch wasn’t all that great? If I had asked a student, chances are they’d say that they don’t eat their school lunch by choice. But we’re just seventh graders that don’t know a lot of what really goes on when it comes to our lunches, so I intend to show you some research that I found from credible sources that proves that school lunches need to change.
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
The school cafeteria plans to change our lunch to a more healthier lunch menu and i believe that it is a bad idea. Our school lunches are the most important meal that students get and it would be unfair if students to take away their favorite meals. The school lunch is sometimes the only thing some students get to eat a day. Some Lunches would be left tasteless and unappetizing. I believe that if we change our school lunches that Most students will go without the basic nutrition that we need through out the school day. School lunches have a significant affect on students, and by which some have a favorite meal. Most of the favorite meals that students have are sometimes the most delectable items on the menu. By changing the school menu, these students will be
In my opinion, making the school's lunch menu healthier is a bad idea. One reason is that making the menu healthier is not serving a purpose. A second reason is kids can always bring their own lunch to school. A third reason is that making the lunch healthy is not going to make the child have a healthy lifestyle. Although, others may disagree and say that having a healthier lunch menu is a good idea. In one's opinion, they can say that making the school's lunch menu healthier is a good idea. They could say that this is a good idea because kids would be eating healthy at school and home. Some may think that this a good idea because it is a way that is helping lower the obesity rate in kids. Others may think that making the lunch menu healthier
According to Solochek, “a salad bar at a high school in Florida is popular, but eight of the 12 students interviewed there said that they were not satisfied with the portion sizes” (Citation). This is a big problem in many school cafeterias’. Solochek mentions that “School districts around the country are tackling complaints about the new nutrition rules that took effect, adding more fruits and vegetables, but shrinking other portion sizes to limit grains, proteins and calories” (Citation). While attending community college, I got the chance to interview a cafeteria worker who told me that all junior high and high school students, including athletes, get the same portion size as elementary students, this is why the big kids stay hungry. 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. Sure these issues bother students and parents, but they even bother government officials, and the members of student lunch
Every day students enjoy their lunches at school. They always enjoy eating their delicious meals where they have the option to chose what they want. If their lunch is changed then their options will be limited. Changing the lunch to be healthier will not be something that will be very great for our school. If the school lunch is changed then some of the students that are larger could not get the nutrition they need and hurt the ones that really need those extra calories. Athletes need a larger lunch, and limiting the lunch to be healthier can affect them badly. students should be the ones to decide the food they eat, not the school. Although it can allow some students to lose weight, changing the school lunch to be healthier will not be good because it will make a small impact or even a negative impact,
Until now, students have been demanding with teachers and assistant principals to have a better lunch or more options, it’s not fair students have to eat the
Imagine that your school cafeteria plans to change to a new, healthier lunch menu, which could eliminate some of the students' favorite cafeteria lunches. Some schools may believe that this change will be a beneficial change, but i disagree. Students should have the right to eat what they please. If you, the principal, decides to change the lunch menu these problems can and will show up at some point in time, if the school eliminates the food that students' like then some might stop buying school lunches, the school will stop receiving the much needed money from these lunches, and some students might "fight" back in order to get their favorite foods back. First, if the school eliminates the foods students' like then some might stop buying lunches from the
Cafeteria food in schools is made to be healthy for students, but is it really healthy for students if they think it is foul and do not want to eat it? Should schools change the healthy foods to foods that students would actually want to eat? School food’s job is to be healthy and tasty to get the students through their day, but sadly school lunches tend to miss the mark on both accounts. Public schools rely on money from the government to supply food to their students, but due to several cutbacks the thing served in the cafeteria is hardly food at all. We all know the stereotypical school food mystery meat Monday or a slab of grey mush and sadly that is not too far from what it is in reality. Even with the “healthy” options most school supply is packed with harmful preservatives and chemicals that harm our youth from buying the cheapest possible edible green thing. As a country does not seem to want to invest into healthy and better futures for our young people.
