What are you eating in the school cafeteria?

Do you care about the students who don’t know any better than to eat unhealthy? Do you care about what your child is eating? If you do, you should watch what your child is choosing to eat at lunch. So many kids are getting sick or are obese from school cafeterias.This is unacceptable, because these are the future generations of our nation.These are the kids that will grow up to be scientists, engineers, explorers; so, we DO need to take care at least to be sure they eat healthy!

Young kids are eating this food, and it develops a liking to this food.When people eat this food, it can make them sick and then they can’t do many things, like run and play.One of the worst illnesses to get is diabetes,and it can be really bad to have.When these children grow up, they make poor eating choices.

If kids eat the bad cafeteria food at school they will eat it at home, too, because the food in school cafeterias might taste good, but isn’t good for your body.Some schools serve pizza for breakfast and lunch, and then the kids eat it for dinner, too.

At some schools, the kids don’t even know what lettuce is! Much of the food in school cafeterias is at least 40% bad for you. At some schools,what they do to make chicken nuggets is basically grinding up the chicken, bones in, later breading and cooking, and worse. At some schools french fries count as vegetables! The meat they use is treated with growth hormones and that can get into humans. Then of course the milk is bad too. If there is also natural milk, the kids choose the flavored milk.

Each year, hundreds of kids get sick from cafeteria food.The food in school cafeterias is not healthy, especially to young kids.Some kids know this and are okay with it, but they should not be. Most kids don’t though, and they need to. If kids know this, they might want to stop eating the cafeteria’s food!
