Have you ever wondered if you could ever change the school lunches in the Public schools? Well you’re not the only one, many other people thought about changing the way you eat at lunch and started to change it. Some trials have failed but some have succeeded at the trail for their public school. But some administrators what it to come to all schools, for the fact that they are losing money because kids stopped eating lunches at school.
The author's opinion on school lunch guidelines is they are not working. The purpose of the article is to convince readers that the school lunch isn’t helping, and some evidence to prove it is” this month we visited a school in Suburban Chicago and found a shocking 46 boxes of pears in the trash” said Jim Allvol. This shows that the purpose of the article is to convince readers that the school lunch isn’t helping, and the school lunch guidelines are not working. Another piece of evidence to prove this is “ Schools tell us that they have seen a 50% increase in lunchroom trash.” said Kay McKeen. This shows that it doesn't work or meet the school guidelines and it doesn't help to fight obesity and Jim opinion was
“The school lunch program, begun in the 1970s as a result of bipartisan federal legislation, has been by most measures an enormous success. For lots of poor families it’s become a way to count on at least getting one decent meal into their children, and when it disappears it’s catastrophic,” (page 224) In the essay “Schools out for the Summer” Quindlen writes about the problem of hunger in the USA.
The school shouldn't change the menu, I mean they have to pay for the food that they get. Most likely the school will have money left over, I look at it like they can put the money into investments. The school could use the money for the following reasons: The school gets destroyed, getting sued, or in a money crisis. Keeping the menu the same could only make parents happy. If parents don't want their kids eating a certain type of way they could get together and protest.
Another enormous issue Americans should be complaining about, is the food children are being fed in Schools. More than one-third of American kids are obese or overweight. Nutrient-rich food are essential to mental and physical health. If our children are the most important investment for our futures, how we expect them to perform at their best with inadequate meals.
Americans did not care about what was being served to their children at school. Every social media site people have compared our school lunches to other countries. The first lady Michelle Obama had made some changes to what was being served at lunch. I intend to prove that if we do not start paying attending to what are children are
All of the children that live in America are entitled to a free public education. A lunch is provided that costs a reduced fee for those who attend a public school. Every day, thousands of kids attend school and mindlessly eat this lunch. A lunch that is full of frozen, processed foods that all share the same unpronounceable chemicals in their ingredient list. I personally believe that if schools started to add more natural, fresh, whole foods into their lunches it would be helpful to our societies growing obesity epidemic.
The best part of school is lunchtime. Many children say it is their favorite subject. Most students also look forward to eating the delicious food given to them. Eating the food gives the students energy and fills them up until dinner. Students get excited to go to lunch and eat the most delicious food the cafeteria has to offer.
When Barack Obama took the presidential office, his wife Michelle made it her First Lady initiative to work with school aged children. Part of this initiative included a program called My Plate to help make school lunches healthier by ridding them of unhealthy foods like pizza and brownies, and replacing them with healthier fruits, vegetables, and grains. Most school systems throughout the country have put this initiative into place, but some have met backlash from students as they have gotten rid of popular student dishes. School systems need to start healthier school lunch initiatives, even in the heat of student backlash, because they provide needed nutrition to students, they give parents a feeling of security, and they help student academic
Although changing the lunch menu would be better for students, it has a lot of conflicts. For one, healthier lunch choices would be much more costly. If schools pay more for lunches, then they would have to cut back on other things. Another concern is that most students do not like to eat healthy and would not appreciate what the school is
Kids not buying the lunches from the school means not as much money comes into our school. And not having the money from lunches means the school would not make as much money. So we would not have money for the school to supply us with the school supplies we need, like wood pencils, loose leaf paper, and other supplies like glue sticks. If you want kids to be healthier, the easiest thing to do would to be to give the kids more time to be active.
Students tend to eat school food that is appealing to them because it is something they look forward to eating, where as other food doesn't appeal to them. Studies show that waste has inflated significantly since the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” was placed in 2011 by Michelle Obama. (Wanjek) Waste wouldn’t have increased so much if school took a vote on what students like better, instead of making all of the food “healthy”, but then still giving us vending machines,and ala carte with chips,
The School Nutrition Association and its 55,000 member food service professionals sent a clear message to Congress about the state of the nation’s cafeteria offerings to kids: First lady Michelle Obama’s regulations have got to go, they said. In a 2015 Position Paper, the SNA suggested Congress amend the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 — so kids aren’t so hungry, EAG.org reported. Basically, the organization requested lawmakers to take a second look at the law and loosen some of the calorie, fat and sodium regulations. Perhaps then, the group argued, more children would go back to buying school
The Federal government’s large volume purchasing power is an important factor in maintaining school food service budgets because it may allow the procurement of food at a lower unit cost than if a school were purchasing equivalent commercial foods on its own. On an average day, USDA Foods make up between 15 and 20 percent of the products served as part of the school lunch. The remaining 80 to 85 percent is purchased from commercial markets using the extra the cash assistance to provide the USDA. The funds provided by State and local governments are student payments that reduce the price and paid lunches, catering activities, and other funds were and are being earned by or provided to the school food
Sec 2 of the Act, states the purpose of the Act. It states “It i8 hereby declared to be the policy of Congress, as a measure of national security, to safeguard the health and well-being of the Nation's children and to encourage the domestic consumption of nutritious agricultural commodities and other food, by assisting the States, through grants-in aid and other means, in providing an adequate supply of food and other facilities for the establishment, maintenance, operation and expansion of nonprofit school lunch programs “, according
