My children have never bought school lunch a day in their lives. My oldest is in 4th grade and there are many reasons why, nutrition being number 1. The foods are filled with sodium and fat. Serving chicken nuggets on a Tuesday and then popcorn chicken on a Friday and then a chicken patty the following Monday, is NOT my idea of a healthy lunch. Have you seen the junk in these frozen chicken nuggets? I would love to see the chicken nuggets gone.
Like Beth states, adding items in would be wonderful. I appreciate that our schools serve fruit and vegetables at lunch time however have a salad area so children can pick green peppers, tomatoes etc to add to their lunches. We are suppose to be teaching our children healthy eating habits, but when they eat lunch 5x a week at school, parents like myself have no choice but to pack a lunch they know is nutritious.
