An Article called The Real Problem with School Lunches talks about how “we criticize schools ' reliance on highly processed, heat- 'n '-eat food, but cooking from scratch requires adequate cold storage and food preparation facilities, as well as trained workers” (Siegel). This shows that we complain so much on how the food is prepared but the government as well as every individual does not want to pay the price. 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).

Are school meals really that unhealthy? Why do so many people want healthier school lunches?

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.
My friends have already unpacked their lunches and are admiring each other’s cooking skills. One of my friends has brought venison wrapped in bacon, and everyone’s mouth-- except mine-- is watering. I admit I am also an animal killer, but I reassure myself that a deer is much cuter than a fish. To no one’s surprise, I rip open my lunchbox and reveal my tuna and corn salad. When I first started bringing my lunch to school, my friends were disgusted by the pervasive odor, and I solemnly vowed to eat it at home instead so that I would not bother anyone with my peculiar eating habits.
“Children who eat lunches at school are five times more likely to eat a minimum of two servings of a fatty food, like fried chicken” (Gaille). As 30 million kids walk through the lunch lines everyday, they are no longer served greasy pizza and french fries.

This has resulted in meals being lower in fat, calories and sodium and also contain more fruits, vegetables and proteins. Consequently, kids just aren’t having it.
Problem identification of Walkers and AMV BBDO: Until now the brand's marketing approach has not delivered a sustained uplift. In order to improve sales, they want to encourage consumers to eat crisps with their sandwiches during lunch time. Based on research British people like the idea of having a packet of Walkers crisps together with their sandwich. But less than one out of ten actually eats crisps at lunch. Changing the consumer's vision to one that says sandwiches and crisps belong together at lunch time and the fact that crisps weren't sold next to sandwiches in stores are the main issues.

A school had to die the applesauce bright green because kids were not buying it, so they thought that they could make it look sweeter and full of flavor. Some schools in California were testing to see if the Slim lunch tray(picture on page #five) was going to affect the kids decision of picking the better choice of foods. It is understandable to try to get kids to eat the right foods but there is other ways into getting kids to eat right, should schools be tricking their students into eating healthier? It is not up to the school to control how the children eat and what they eat. A school is for learning and lunch is just a session to get kids back on track for upcoming classes.

I am an American citizen, but that label did not suit me as a child. Conflicts arose between the culture I was engaged in at school and the culture that my family kept at home. I typically had gimbap, Korean seaweed rice rolls, while my friends ate ham and cheese sandwiches and chips for lunch and spoke about how much money the tooth fairy gave them the night before, a fantasy figure my parents did not know about. My friends would lightly poke fun at my peculiar lunch and it quickly made me feel like an outcast. Additionally, it was hard for me to find a place in school for the first couple of years, as I spoke poor english.
