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
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 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.
On the other hand some people think the schools need to change up the menus. They think that the current school lunches is why we have so many obese kids right now. This is not the case because the children who are obese is not only because of the food they are eating it's because they do not get enough exercise. Changing the school lunches overall would not be beneficial because the food they are eating is not the biggest part of why they are obese.
Yes, one may understand that our budget is low and healthy foods tend to always cost quite a bit more, yet that should not mean anything because this is an individual’s health we are talking about. In the newspaper article, “No Lunch Left Behind,” by Alice Waters and Katrina Heron, the authors make it a point that, “Cash-strapped parents should be able to rely on the government to contribute to their children’s physical well-being, not to the continued spread of youth obesity, Type 2 diabetes and other diet related problems”(10). Waters and Heron want to prove that a good, free lunch can exist, although people need to be willing to help in one way or another and contribute to a making a healthy meal being provided at school. What about the students who are suffering from a disease already? What do they eat at school, knowing they have to watch what they eat on a daily basis? If an individual has a problem, and is suffering from a disease that makes it impossible to eat the unhealthy food being served in the cafeteria, what is he/she going to eat when they forget to pack their lunches, or don’t have time to make one? If there were people to encourage us to eat healthier and exercise daily, a decreasement in obesity would occur. Schools that introduce healthful foods in the classroom are more likely to be eaten at
The principal is trying to change school lunch menu's to healthier meals. I strongly believe that this is a good idea to change the lunches because of the following reasons: healthier meals makes kids grow big and strong, it gives you more energy to move around, and it taste delicious. Schools all around should consider changing their lunches for the better of their student. This is for the better of the student to have healthy food. I will go into greater detail in the following paragraphs. Although you may think that junk food is good for your body and doing you justice, but it's really not. It's the healthy foods that are doing it such as; vegetables, fruits, and milk. Fruits and vegetables when eaten, give kids the right nourishment
Over the years the school lunches in america has changed drastically.15 to 20 percent of the products in the program are purchased by the USDA.The school lunch system in America has changed over the years in many ways. The school lunch program started when Harry S. Truman in 1946 was president as a way to help every child have a very nutritious lunch while in school. Studies showed that people believe that if they had the energy they needed to get them through the day it most likely would have came from a nutritional lunch. Over the years people were concerned about the amount of fat the school lunches and breakfasts were providing for the children. Many children have unhealthy eating habits through the high fat pizzas, burgers, and French
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
It will give students the ability to get rid of the risk of having an unhealthy lunch at school. Although it can make students lose weight, it won't help because those options are already there. Schools already have options like salads or fat free milk that are there for the student to choose. Changing the school lunches can also have an impact on what students eat at home by letting them adapt to the new foods. Changing the lunches will not let them adapt to the new food. It would only change what is at school. Students aren't going to change their whole diet because one meal is changed. changing the school food to become healthier will not have much of an impact. It could lead to students to stop buying lunches. students would start to pack lunches that can be much more unhealthy than what the school lunches originally were. They could load their lunches with any junk food without any limit. It also can create a negative impact because students could stop eating lunch all together. Students would stop eating the lunches that are provided at school and not pack lunches. Students would lack the nutrition that is needed and create some even worse problems
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
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
Healthier school lunch menu would be a great idea. Even throw students favorite cafeteria foods would no longer be available. Children in my school would be a lot more healthier if they ate healthier food from the cafeteria. If the school has healthier students then the number of sick children could decrease by far. Then with fewer sick students more student are not missing as many days of school. The cost for lunch would decrease by far with the healthier foods it's cheaper to make foods like peanut butter and jelly. Schools want the cheapest and healthiest way. Student have to understand that they can't just have any food they want they eat to much of one thing and could them that's why school is trying to help out
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.
