LDV School Lunch

FOOD   Once it’s time for lunch the intermediate classes are ready to eat after a good lecture, or math lesson. Students rush to the cafeteria to fill up their grumbling tummies. Some of the students bring delicious food packed in a lunch box from home. However, not everyone brings a meal from home. Introducing…LDV school lunch. Some think this school lunch is not worth buying, others agree to disagree. School lunch may be worth buying, but it depends on the meal served. The school used to serve chocolate milk and more complete meals, now the school only has low fat milk and 1% milk. They don’t have chocolate milk because of the fact that it has lots of sugar and because of the high percentages of child obesity. The percentage of children aged 6–11 years old in the United States who are obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 18% in 2012. However no more chocolate milk upsets many elementary kids.


It’s not just the milk that upsets the elementary kids, it’s also the food. They do not always serve complete meals and don’t always have ‘’yummy’’ food. A complete meal is a meal that can fill a student up. They sometimes serve a small chicken leg, pizza (rarely), soup, and a combo meal of a cheese stick, a 2 ½ inch wide PB and J sandwich, and a yogurt. 5th grader Sophia tells me she does not like school lunch. She told me one time she got milk with her meal and it was expired!!! Another 5th grader named Jesus said he dislikes school lunch. Jesus says the snack bar items are sometimes expired and it is gross!
