I agree because nowadays kids eat to much junk food and starting to feel unwell. Healthy food makes you strong , fit and has lots of protean. Some kids are not getting the right nutrients to help them grow , concentrate at school and stay healthy in adult life .
Children who don't have enough nutrients have trouble focusing in class. The nutritional issues that affect children when they don't eat healthy are growth, bone health, dental health, obesity, body image, concentration and learning, eating habits, lifestyle diseases, and much more.
It helps the kids grow. It helps the kids form strong teeth, bones, and muscles. It helps protect the kids from diseases in the future. It helps the kids have a lot of energy during the day. It helps their brain develop.
Whenever possible food in schools should be as healthy as possible.This will allow students to get a good start to their day because it has been shown in several studies that students who are exposed to good nutrition will have better achievement than those who do not eat as well.
There's so reason schools should serve or sell junk food. It's everyone's right to eat that sort of thing, but if students want it, they can bring it from home. The food served by the school should have at least some semblance of nutritional value. Serving junk food is no good for anything but the school's profits, and that's not what education should be about.
Healthy eating at school is part of the learning process. Fruits, vegetables and fresh meats should be served whenever possible. Yes, healthy foods are more expensive than processed foods. However, school kids can take matters into their own hands. Biology classes can grow vegetables in the school's courtyard or near the parking lot. Rooftops can have container gardens for more fresh vegetables as well. Healthy school lunches are all about the overall attitude of the school district.
Yes, foods in schools should be healthy, because it is the best choice among alternatives. If the school has to serve food, there is no reason not to serve healthy food. Children have plenty of opportunities to eat junk food. Their parents should have a say in their diets. There is not much ground for objection to students being served healthy food at school. The junk can wait.
For obvious reasons, school foods need to be healthy, especially in elementary and high schools in the United States. Students need to grow up eating foods that are actually nutritious for their bodies. Otherwise, they grow up learning to rely upon unhealthy and sugary foods that only hurt their bodies.
School foods should at least give the students more healthy alternatives, but not necessarily force it on the child. No one wants to be forced to eat something and some people will not eat if they do not like the food, having more options could help prevent students from going without eating.
Kids today eat too much junk food, and this could be curbed by schools taking the proactive approach of offering healthy foods. This will be cost-effective, as many healthy foods don't cost that much more than unhealthy foods. Schools are already taking steps in this direction by eliminating soda machines.
A balanced diet puts children in a positive mind frame, ready to work. Not everyone loves to eat healthy food.
Children love to eat cupcakes and cookies, but they also love their various vegetables and fruits such as carrots and apples. And according to the Australian Canteen Guidelines, cupcakes and cookies are in the green zone, meaning that they should and can be sold at school canteens.
I would rather have a bag of chips with a soda instead of slimy canned peaches and mystery meat. The government can barely afford real food, let alone fresh fruits or vegetables. High schoolers are old enough to decide whether they want to eat bad or good. Kids any younger should eat healthy at home because it is not the school's job to dictate what choices kids make in their diets.
