There are always companies trying to offer a better price to schools constantly and they are giving into these unbeatable prices without even thinking about the consequences (Junk Food). These foods are so cheap because they are manufactured and processed so that the company can produce as much as possible and as cheap as possible. This means that the foods given to the students are not up to its nutritional best and this is the main reason students are eating so poorly. Instead, McHenry County schools can begin to start buying their foods from local farmers and other companies that are local and are more nutritional. Vending machines can also be implemented with other things other than just chips, cookies and other junk foods like that.
(1)“Studies have shown that there are, in fact, healthier alternatives to these school lunch programs.” Although these programs are more expensive for the school, they are nutritious and well worth putting a little more money into changing. I think public schools should provide healthier school lunch programs for their students. (2)”According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an organization that works to improve the nutrition of school lunches, a nutritious school lunch can help prevent your child from gaining an unhealthy amount of weight.” The numbers of children that are overweight keep sky rocketing as well as the number of children developing diabetes. More and more children are eating unhealthier by the day. (2)”Studies have shown that school lunches have tons of saturated fat and calories in their pizzas, cheeseburgers, chicken
28, April: 536-542.) What i took from this was that people with a lower income and more children in th household may not have the same amount of money to spend on groceries and healthier foods than families with a higher income. It is much cheaper for bigger families with a tight budget to purchase filling foods such as noodles and processed food than to spend the extra money on fruits and vegetables. Lets say for instance you have twenty dollars to spend at the grocery store. The money would go much further if the person would purchase processed foods such as hot dogs, lunch meat and Ramen noodles.
Inside of students bag, There werebag of Hot Cheetos and Doritos. Also kids do not have that much money to buy expensive healthy food and want to eat tasty food with cheep prices. They would not let California lunch policy to eat healthier food because it is forcing students to spend more money and instead of that, students will bring their own food.

Once people reap the benefits of food banks, they will stay on because they can, even after they get out of poverty. Food banks rarely have the resources to visit people at their homes, but if they did, they would find that many people living the opposite of a life in poverty. When people do this, they take food away from people who really need it.
SNAP provides about $1.40 per meal per day to help citizens pay for their meals. SNAP spending also stimulates the economy, and keeps citizens off of welfare. Disadvantages to this program can include that what type of food purchased cannot be controlled. Also, SNAP does not cover all of the costs for food. Finally, there are set requirements for SNAP, and if a person does not meet all of the requirements, then the family will not qualify for SNAP benefits.
If students would have known that fast food ingredients were found in our school lunches. It would be superior for them to go to a nearby McDonalds during lunch to obtain a better deal and also an appetizing lunch.
