I see many kids who have health problems because of the way they eat. I recently took a field trip to a school to find children eating unhealthy foods. Some kids I see throw away lunches that haven't even been touched. We need to stop this and make sure our children are getting enough to eat and are eating healthy foods.

Firstly I am 15 years old and I eat school lunches Monday to Friday every week. Yeah there is unhealthy options amongst schools which a lot of pupils will eat from their own choice but there are also the healthier options such as baked potatoes and there are also a surprising amount of salads available to school children. They are encouraged to eat healthily but it is out of their own choice to do so and if schools were to get rid of unhealthy meals and replace them with healthier ones people would just take their money and go to shops and buy sweets instead. What's better: a child eating cheese and ham Panini or a child eating a bag of crisps/popcorn/sweets and drinking fizzy energy drinks. Thank you!

"Healthy" like a baked potato. Maybe better education on nutrition too.
