No, it should be far less prominent but not abolished all together. I do not think the school school have junk food available in the lunchroom, but it should not be banned.

At least my child will have a lunchbox that will have organic meals. School lunch programs offer food that have synthetic ingredients like MSG and artificial colors and flavors that cause health problems in the future.

No, all in moderation, maybe including vending machines with healthy snacks would be a good idea. How about increasing the physical activity? My kids only get one hour of gym a week in which most of the kids just sit around and chat...

No.... all children need alittle bit of junk food in their diet. However, the key is moderation and exercise. The lunches should be that of low fat, low sodium, low cholesteraol and moderate amounts of carbohydrates. AFCMSVO/NAPSP

I also feel that the lunches should be free or at a reduced cost Two dollars a day from a fixed income is just a little much.

Yes!I don't mind people giving their children junk food. I just don't want others to have the right to give my children junk food. I choose for my children not to eat processed food, HFCS or food coloring. I don't need other's cupcakes, etc.

No..I believe that students would get in more trouble because we'd just bring it in from the outside.

It is trechorous for a school to preach about nutrician when the brown bag of chips and cookies is no more healty than the hot lunch the school provides. Food should be healthy and palatable. Junk should be saved for class birthdays and at home.
