The Problem With School Lunches

30 Aug 2018 no comments emily vasey Categories Uncategorized


What are your kids eating for lunch when they go back to school?

Are you good with pizza being fed to your child as a vegetable? Or your child eating highly processed foods that are high in preservatives, sugar and trans fat? Common lunch menus include: chicken nuggets, pizza, hot dogs and french fries. ⠀

The benefits of your child eating a nutritious meal at school cannot be overstated: healthier, more alert students who are ready to learn, and who develop healthy eating habits early in life, experience reduced prevalence of chronic disease and disability, lower medical costs, and improved overall happiness. ⠀

That’s not the only issue with school lunches. Kids associate school with education; therefore they get the wrong impression that these kinds of foods are healthy.
