School lunches are supposed to be disgusting. Hairy women serve mystery meat. Ex-cons slop down deep fried mashed potatoes. Hefty thighs in school uniforms quiver at the sight of a bug or a hair garnishing their barbecue sandwiches. Or was that just my experience?
Regardless of how pleasant tasting your cafeteria’s food was, across the board, cafeteria food is pretty bad for kids. They are offered options of grilled cheese sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs. Even if there are healthy options on the menu, most students don’t have the restraint or the knowledge to make the right choices.
