I am in school right now, and I can tell you that the lunches in schools are absolutely disgusting. The lunches are also unhealthy, which is bad for growing kids. The habits set early in life are the habits likely to stay with people for their entire lives, and if we teach children to eat unhealthy food like the schools are doing, they will be eating unhealthy food for the rest of their lives. Some normal school lunches where I live are: microwave corndogs, mystery meat sandwich (we aren't quite sure what this is supposed to be), and more things like this. Most schools do offer a drink (sugary juice or skim milk) and a fruit or vegetable (not organic), but those items are easily thrown away and forgotten about. The lunches at public schools are horrendous, and most kids at my school throw them away or don't even bother getting lunch. Even that in itself is unhealthy. Growing kids and teens need a lot of food to grow properly, and if they are throwing out their lunch, they won't be getting the amount of food they need. Npr.org even says, "If a teen says their meal is healthy," she says, "they're less likely to throw it out over the course of a week. But if a teen says it's unhealthy, that teen is more likely to throw it out." Even teenagers care about getting healthy food! Some may say that kids can just pack a lunch for school, but a lot of schools start to early for kids to wake up, get ready, and make a lunch, so they are stuck with the disgusting school lunch.  Go to this link to look at some basic school lunches: https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2013/11/20/246400702/this-is-what-america-s-school-lunches-really-look-like
