Food distributed by the National School Lunch Program contains some of the same ingredients in fast food... Yet this is how the government continues to "help" feed millions of American school children. (Heron 11)" I believe that if you receive money from the U.S.D.A. that schools should invest in a kitchen to serve freshly salads, fruits, and vegetables or as a minimum take a step into having a healthier school diet and lunch.

Healthy eating is not one of them at least not in the first years of school. I agree that a 7 year old won’t care about the subject like a 13 year old.

According to a book called Foods for home and schools by Carlotta Greer in 1994, it states that a student’s test score improves when they are given a healthy meal before test. Some people say kids are our future.

In 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama began to seek a major overhaul of the national school breakfast and lunch program as part of her Let’s Move! campaign. “As parents, we try to prepare decent meals, limit how much junk food our kids eat and ensure that they have a reasonably balanced diet,” said Mrs. Obama.
(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
