Some students in my classes would have to leave in the middle of class just to go to the bathroom because of the food they have eaten at lunch. Plenty of food was wasted throughout the school year and I just think the school is wasting their money on the food they buy. This is because not many people wanted to eat the food and because what was being served on the lunch trays was unwanted it is unwanted. At Indiana State the food is sometimes overcooked and tough on the teeth. One time a friend of mines tried to cut her meat with a knife, but she could barely cut the knife through.
One problem among school lunches is how all the unhealthy foods build up over time and cause obesity. According to Connecticut Children's Medical Center, most schools in America that don't regulate their lunches calorie intake
Many cafeteria workers and staff members in 49 states have said many students do not want the governments new school lunches. Almost 7 out of 17 schools with have been seen with students throwing away some or all their fruits or vegetables, even the cafeteria workers are suffering under these new standards. About 60.3 percent of school districts want flexibility to be given to all schools to improve their ability to provide and give good nutrition without harm to any instructions and school district operations. Schools should know by now what is good for students and what is not, but they should not go overboard with the wheat and whole grain items. Another example that shows that schools should be responsible for providing a nutritious lunch is knowing that there are a variety of ways to make healthy foods taste good for school students.
In high schools, their hormones are changing and when they eat or drink foods that are not healthy, their hormones respond to those, by making them hyper, unable to learn and to comprehend subjects better in schools. Furthermore, those unhealthy foods really affect their grades, which in turn, the school grade drops to a “C or D” school in the district. Researchers have shown how unhealthy eating habits have affected high-schoolers in schools. In addition, eating a healthy breakfast in the morning before a big exam, the FCAT in FL, shows an increase in the high-schoolers grades. Moreover, the controversy over cafeteria food is whether or not it is healthy for all students from elementary schools to colleges.
School Lunches “More than a third of the county's children are overweight or obese.”(Gustin, 1). As shocking as this is, it's true. One of the big reasons that children and teens are overweight is because of the foods that they eat. They are fed these fattening and unhealthy foods by the school system. Their futures can be changed if we change our choices.
From personal estimation, school nutrition has effect the lifestyle of the students that consume the food the school serves by their body’s condition and tedious habits. It has become common for the consumers of these foods to dismiss and forget about the nutritional value of what they are eating…or missing. The changes to the menu over the years have not been enough to help students keep up a decent condition in growth and health for their well-being. Overweight or obese children pose a higher risk physical and psychological health problems and economic concern for the country. Over the years, obesity has increased dramatically and is continually taking control of our nation.
Gruel?” School lunches have a history of a reputation of tasting bad. Quality of food has always been suspect. Now, with the dramatic rise of childhood obesity and food-related environmental concerns has led to a focus on school lunches both in terms of the quality of meals served and the educating about food systems, choices, and the impact on health. Most foods are not made on site. They are prepackaged and cooked in a 3rd party distribution site and shipped to the schools daily or weekly.
Obesity has taken over many kids lives. The rise has many parents and citizens concerned for the safety of children. There are many people to blame when it comes to the rise of children being obese. Parents blame fast food restaurants for the rise while restaurants blame parents for the rise. Some people are still wondering if there are others to blame for the rise.
Also the community need to be made aware of the changes to help support the program. We need to change our approach to recess and food in public schools because of astonishing statistics that have shown just how bad the obesity crisisis in America. Over a third of school age kids are overweight and one of the effects of this is more sick days since the children have compromised immune systems and are therefore more subsceptible to diabetes and coronary issues earlier than previo... ... middle of paper ... ...obligated to obey simply ignored it since they claimed they did not have the funds to support this program without raising the price of food in the cafeterias. As for the playground equipment, children are extremely impressionable and should not be encouraged to perform dangerous acts which may result in more lost days from school for injuries and lawsuits threatening the schools. “Public school playgrounds were among the most common sites of injuries leading to lawsuits”(Cohea,Ron).” The fear of costly court cases if children get hurt during recess also has led many school leaders to cancel recess or make it much more restrictive.
These young children with be the first generation in our country’s history to die at a younger age then their parents according to the CDC. The major force behind this catastrophe is school menu foods that are fed to kids across the nation on a daily basis. The primary items on these lunch menus are chicken nuggets, tater tot... ... middle of paper ... ...y worsen and the consequences will be out of our control. It is morbid how around the world there are kids dying from starvation and lack of nutriment, but here in America greed and negligence is feeding kids to death with too much unhealthy food. America owes its children and future generations after them to put an end to this astrocyte.
