• Should school lunches be healthier? Yes!!!

    Of course the schools should change their menu. Everyday it is the same cheeseburgers and hotdogs you see that are being handed out. Now the principles say that it is very healthy yet almost everyone brings a home lunch. Um... Is not that funny?! Its your call aren't u sometimes annoyed seeing fat people who cant move, o lets fight obesity together and make a change!!

  • Healthy is Great!

    Kids will be more healthy and will want school lunches even more! Once you learn, fruits and vegetables are delicious! There is nothing wrong with being healthy and better foods for school children will help the growing process. When schools buy fresh fruits and vegetables from a local farms in the state, it benefits the farmer and helps the farmer grow bigger, and have more variety of foods to choose from in the future! I vote YES for healthy lunches at school!

  • School meals need to be healthier

    Im a middle schooler in western michigan and i think school meals should be healthier.
    At my school they sell french fries every other day. They also sell ice cream. Every thursday we can buy a slushie for a dollor. We have pizza at least 3 times a week and there pizza leaves a puddle of grease on my tray. My cousin goes to school in western michigan too and they sell pizza every day there along with nachoes, i think school lunches lead to child hood obesity. This is why i think school lunches should be healthier.

  • Students Should have Healthier Lunches

    I hate how our school lunches aren't healthy. Also' some people want to eat healthy so we don't have to face the consequences of all that grease we are eating in every meal at our schools. If you know what I mean. No offense to some people that are reading this and know what I mean.

  • More Energy for the Second half of the day

    Students need a healthier lunch in order to maintain their energy for the rest of the day. A lot of students don't eat breakfast. If they have a test the last hour of the day and haven't gotten any good energy they will preform poorly because they will not have enough energy to focus on the test.

  • Yes they should!!!

    Children should have a healthy school lunch. One reason is because if it's not healthy they might not want to eat it and will go home hungry. Also, because students sit through learning for a long period of time and they get hungry so they look forward to lunch unless they bring lunch.

  • Organic Foods Should Be A Must

    They may say they are being healthier by doing whole wheat buns but that's the LEAST of our problems. 1/2 if not more f the food is processed and that Is BAD. We need more organic foods. We also need to lay off the grease. Kids will automatically choose the non-healthy over the healthy. They should provide healthier choices without it costing more.

  • Yes they Should!!!

    Children are doing work for the first half of the day and some of them do not even get a good breakfast. So a good healthy lunch is a great idea for energy and it helps your brain function better. Children are going to school to learn for the future and they need to learn that in the future they will have a better choice. Therefore I do belive uthe y should have a better lunch at school.

  • Schools should serve organic.

    Our children deserve better, they should be served organic food and fried foods should be completely taken out of the equation. Fried foods are not only unhealthy but they are also linked to obesity, cancer and high blood pressure, our children sure deserve better. Parents should really start packing their children's lunch so that way we could really control what the eat.

  • Yes yes yes

    Ok so if we can't aford to have our kids bring there own lunch then we have them eat schools lunch that they don't make that healthy and I know some one who pucked arter eating the schools lunch and when I eat it, it makes me sick. Our children should be Helter. Just saying

  • School lunches are malnourishment!

    The school lunches do not provide fat which is necessary to health. It also lacks ineffectual nutrients. Furthermore, one lunch can be 350 calories or less. This is not enough to maintain a learning, active student throughout the day. Also, there are kids who get lunch for free and reduced prices because their families can't afford to feed them. They eat the school lunch and that mat be all they eat that day. 350 calories a day! The average American should eat 2,000 calories a day. If that's not malnourishment, then I don't know what is.

  • Its not a healthy lunch for many reasons.

    The hamburger is not healthy because of the bread. And the meat might have many fats and other harmful thing in. The onion rings are deep fried. The oils and grease is not healthy for you. The fries arent healthy as well. They are fried in grease and other oils.

  • Why I Voted No

    (Sorry for bad English I am from Sweden) Everybody know that if we give the kids healthy food they will not eat the food so it's no idea to try. Kids want junk food not healthy food that they hate so much they will only throw the healthy food away. You can't force the kids to eat wealthy food.

  • It is unhealthy for kids to eat too much junk food.

    It is unhealthy for kids to eat too much junk for. There are about 12 million kids that are obese in the United States and we don't want to increase that number. It isn't a right choice to eat to much junk food, maybe twice a month is ok, but three times or two imps a week it very unhealthy.

  • The REAL Story Behind This Garbage!!!

    I'm in 7th grade and every day someone ask whats for lunch people always say garbage!!! I believe we should either have more amounts of food or have less with unhealthier lunches. Some foods are ok at our school like fish and chicken strips but everything else I either don't eat or throw away. The schools want healthier food but they should be in our shoes for a day.

  • I chose NO!

    You must think that our school lunches are good, well there not. I think they are viale, nauseating, prison lunches that you use for the sake of money. I’m completely against the mystery meat you sever us and call food. I get that you haven’t had a school lunch in ages but have you ever tasted it! It has the exact same taste of the leftover chunks in your mouth after you throw up which is what people want to do when the nibble at it. Dont even get me started with the expired milk!
    The “food” that you pay for practically either goes to waste or is not eaten. Some kids just buy lunch and most likely taste it and throw it away, then some people just don't eat at all and the others are so hungry they take their chances and then regret it. Im not gonna lie, the food that you make is actually ok depending what it is but when you make our lunch it gives me a stomach ache. Im not trying to insult anyone but who came up with those recipes?
    Could you at least give us the lunch that we loved and had? The 6th graders have been waiting for it and heard that we have some awesome lunches but now no one is happy. I would rather have chick fae, sal's pizza, and subway then have our chromebooks. There not all that you know. To me they are just anything you have to carry around and worry about. Having them gone and having the good lunch back would be so much better than what we have now. All kids want really is food. Good food that is. Especially the chips and cookie and really the stuff you took away.What money are you making?
    If we chose to eat and eat and eat and we end up getting fat its there fault not yours and people can chose if they want to be healthy or not and some people pick junk food and some people pick healthy food.

  • The kids are throwing the food away

    I am a senior in high school, and all the kids either throw away the "healthy" food, or don't eat at all. This "healthy" food they give us is cheap, and looks like cardboard. There is no taste and kids feel more sick after eating these "healthy" lunches that if they were to not eat at all.
    We are growing children, we need calories and fats and sugar. Many kids bring their own food and drinks, which are processed microwave meals, snack cakes, and sodas. While those aren't good, it is better for them than to not eat at all.
    Shouldn't we, the people who have to eat the school lunches, get to decide what the lunch consists of? We are not incapable of making decisions for ourselves, no matter how much the public education system tries to deny us that opportunity. We should at least be able to decide what goes into our bodies, since we are are regulated on what we can put on our own bodies and what we can put into our heads.
    We are not a group of weak, incapable things. WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS. NOT PETS.

  • Should we be punished?

    Kids shouldn't suffer offer the fat kids swallowing everything they see. I know life is unfair ,but come on that's just down right cruel. No one eats the healthy lunches and they starve. Kids starve because the food is so disgusting and "healthy". I just want a normal burger, bun, fries, and a milkshake is that so hard to ask. -8th grade student at Wyoming Area secondary center

  • If your fat its your fault

    I'm sorry but everyone has their own choice if you want to eat a lot and be fat then go ahead. Just because some people can't make the right choice that doesn't mean that we should punish everyone else. It your choice what you want to eat and you can't force people.

  • 8th grade perspective

    I go to a public school and sorry to inform everyone, but there are a select few people who are overweight or obese. Kids who have gotten to the point where they are that obese, they should be able to show self control. And parents, if your kid ever gets that big, you need to step up your game. You can't force them to eat healthier but don't support obesity. It is not the school lunches, it's the choice between eat it or don't eat it.
