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
If they truly know whats best for us, then why did adults choose to give us unhealthy food from the beggining? if they truly want to take away unhealthy food from cafeteria's, then that will be a big mistake, they might not understand what the kids will do to have their pizza or hamburger. To the kids in schools, unhealthy food is an addiction that we all have the choice to get rid of, but want it to stick around. Taste. That is a major influence for us, because we know we perfer something bad with good taste over something good with no or bad taste. if they decide to get rid of the unhealthy food, who says the students will eat the healthy stuff? No one, because the students have few descisions in thier life already and one of them is to decide what they want for lunch. More the 70% of the students have already decided that they want unhealthy food everyday because of the taste and other reasons So this is what would happen if you decided to take away thier food, the students will more then likely retaliate. Unhealthy food is bad for us, and healthy food will keep us slimmer, but we choose the unhealthy food over healthy because overall, it is better in just
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
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.
For a long time now people have been arguing over whether or not to change up the restrictions to the lunches served in schools across America. Many different arguments have come up in recent years. School officials should not change up the school lunches because some people need more food than others, they should not be able to tell them what they can and can't eat, and finally because it will take lots of time and money to make the switch.
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
Eating a healthy school lunch is part of the National School Lunch Program. It increases a child's consumption of six vitamins and minerals. According to a study published in 2003 in the “American Journal of Agricultural Economics.” Researchers found that eating school lunches helped a student’s intake of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin B12 and riboflavin, as well as dietary fiber. These students also had a lower intake of added sugars. Additionally a 2013 study showed in "Applied Economics Perspectives and Policy" found that on an average school day, students who ate school lunch that had more fruits and vegetables than those who did not. School lunches are not nutritious. Recent data shows that while an estimated 30.6 million US students eat school lunches, only 6% of school lunch programs meet the nutritional requirements established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Although many school across the country are improving what they serve, most are still loaded with fried foods, soda pop and foods that are high in fats and sugars. Department of agriculture works with US government that administers federal programs related to food production and rural life. Students who ate school lunches were less likely to participate in sports
When you're consuming any food the food must be hot, fresh, and good quality. I believe most the meats that schools are serving are process meat and bad for you. For example when you're eating a chicken patty rip it in the middle and look at the meat inside it would probably will look brownish. That's a sign with any poultry that it's not a very good food product. Real poultry should have 100% white meat inside like chicken nuggets, chicken patties, and others a very good brand to find good poultry products is Tyson's. Changing the school lunch can always be negative thing also because most teenagers between the ages of 15-19 eat a lot of junk food so they wouldn't prefer eating healthier foods. It can be a financial problem for the school also because if the school started serving just healthy foods most students wouldn't purchase school lunch it it's sad but true. To prevent that from happening i would serve foods that look appear like junk food but are a more healthier selection for example Turkey Burgers is a good product they are more better for you than a typical fast food burger. Or you can switch it up serve healthy products one day, and serve less healthy products another
Schools could make more money if they sold good tasting food, even if it was not healthy. They make money with the healthy chips, drinks, and the lunch food, so imagine how much more money they could make if they switched back. Students would pay a little extra money for better food at the lunch room. With the money they make from switching foods, they could use for newer things to help students learn better. Students could all be better educated just because they switched foods and drinks over. With the marketing rate for good tasting foods, theirs no way that schools can’t make more money. child obesity is talked about all the time, but has anyone stopped to think that maybe obese students are happy like that with good tasting junk food? people probably haven 't, so before the people start making remarks and bad comments on these situations like that they need to stop and think, are obese students happy? If students are happy the way they are why try changing that? That is not what is going to hurt
First and foremost, the food at school is nasty and horrible. I can’t even say that the food is decent. I know that the food has to be healthy, but it would be nice if the food was more appetizing. For instance, the saimin is like eating noodles in plain hot water. The hamburgers are rubbery and has no flavor. The fries are baked and sometimes almost raw. I have even experienced being served expired milk! There were literally pieces of gunk in my milk. This happened in December and the milk expired in October. I pay $2.25 for a school lunch. In actuality I am
In some schools some principals superintendents have made a decision to opt out of the Healthy choice foods and make there own semi-healthy foods that kids like. To reduce waste and bring back students who have opted to pack a lunch or go off campus for fast food, his districts cafeterias have installed stir-fry stations with abundant vegetables so students can have meals made to order. and he’s added spice bars so kids can even the bland. In schools some principals and administrators are starting to take action. They want students to eat healthy but at the same time eat what they like. when students go off campus researchers say they gain more weight then when they eat the food they like at school, healthy or not. If it’s not the healthiest food in the world then the lunches service can put less on the kids plate. Kids will eat more at school if the school sells what the kids like. FInally the school noticed it and finally started selly stir-fry stations. thus Principal and administrators finally noticed that kids hate their food and want the food that they will eat and not throw
By not spending more money on healthier food the school could spend the money on new textbooks or even tablets for students that will better their education and most likely higher grades. Consequently brightening the future and opening new doors for the students that they most likely would not have been achievable without the better education and higher grades. Another important factor that needs to be accounted for is the school environment and the mood of the school. By taking away students favorite foods it may have a very negative affect on the school. One negative affect is that students may decide to not go to school as much due to the lack of appetizing lunches being served, which may lead to all sorts of negative affects. Another negative effect is test scores and grades may drop because the student is not as focused because they have not had anything to eat and are much more worried about eating than paying attention in class. The mood of the school might also be more negative. If students are happy and feel they are treated fairly they will show more school spirit and all around be a much happier learning environment. Last but not least the fairness to all students especially ones that only meal they get to eat each day is the one they
Some say change is essential for growth while others proclaim it as a necessity of life. Throughout the nation, certain school districts have pondered upon promoting a new variety of cafeteria foods focusing on the outlines of health and nutrition, a debate strongly valued by the likeness of public officials. As health defections soar into a national concern, students and school systems evolve into actions of reform, regulating dietary consumption and improving standards of civil welfare. Overall, varying school lunch menus throughout the region is a necessary assessment to student bodies and communities because it stimulates learning performance and interaction, creates a variety for all, and even promotes change throughout the community, naming this a policy for the win. Performance is dominated through wisdom and
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
