as a teacher, I know first hand the kind of food they are offering kids in the cafeterias. I won't even buy the food myself unless it's completely necessary. Many parents have the choice of packing a lunch for their children, while others depend on the free and reduced lunch program. For these families, I do think the school is doing a disservice. On the other hand, as a parent myself, I make sure that my kids are eating something somewhat balanced compared to the cafeteria food. I do let them eat once in a while from the cafeteria, but even they only ask me a couple of times a month. It's my responsibility as a parent to make sure I am offering the healthiest foods possible to my children. I can't rely on the public schools to do this for me. Really, what else should I expect schools to do for my own kids besides providing the best education there can be? Parenting and Health should be a parent's responsibility, not a school's.
