Foul, Nasty School Lunch!

A closer look at what school children are eating!

Grab your trays!

Welcome to Foul, Nasty School Lunch!  This blog is dedicated to informing anyone who cares about what children nowadays are being fed on a daily basis.  This is not a “bash site”, we have no intentions of “bashing” or hurting anyone’s feelings.  I feel that as a student, something needs to be done about school lunches.  So every day that I attend school, I am going to blog (with pictures) about the food (or whatever you call it) that is being served.  Good or bad.  I am also going to include other student opinions as much as possible.

At my school, breakfast and lunch are free.  We normally have four options for breakfast and lunch, but sometimes the number of options vary.  For breakfast — there are two main dishes, which both normally come with a fruit cup and milk.  The alternative is either cereal and milk, or yogurt and graham crackers with milk.  I don’t know where to start when it comes to listing a normal lunch at our school, because food is always running out, and side-dishes are always being reused.  So I’m not very surprised when yesterday’s ham sandwiches become today’s breakfast — ham and biscuit.  Yummm. I like my ham crusty.

We also have a separate line at lunch called the “À la Carte”, which sells things like chips, nachos, pizza, slushies, and anything else unhealthy you can think of.  Most students at the school take this option instead of school lunch, which is, dare I say, a more unhealthy route than the mystery meat in the lunch line!  And to make matters worse, most of the food/drinks sold are far too overpriced.  Do you like the idea of your son/daughter eating a greasy slice of pizza, rice crispy treats, a large slushie, and four cookies for lunch everyday?  All of that added together would equal about $5.00 or more a day.  That’s $25 a week.  Just to escape lunch-line food that is served every day.

I’m not so willing to spend $25 a week on food, when the school food is offered free of charge.  If only the majority of school food was actually edible, it would be a win-win situation. .

What are your thoughts on school food?  What is a normal meal for you at school?
