“Between 300 and 500 students are eligible for off- campus lunch at one school “(Good Grades 13). Most students drive with friends or drive to go get food, which puts them at risk for danger.

As you know, numerous schools sell junk food at lunch. Students may enjoy a sweet treat during the school day, but others are thinking differently, that the junk food should be kicked out and replaced with healthier foods.

Providing students unhealthy foods can lead to obesity, it can cause early unhealthy habits; and students should have enough time to eat these healthy foods at lunch.

The food we serve our kids across the country has regulations, but all in the wrong places.
