I have spent many lunch hours at school and see what is going on. Healthy lunches are thrown away untouched while those with unhealthy multipacks of snacks share around. The recent changes to Chartwells have not made the school lunches popular with the kids and the abundance of junk food brought in by the kids is amazing. I have seen lunchables, large bags of chips, cookies, etc. shared around the tables. I know my child often comes home with his lunch untouched because he says it was someone's birthday and he ate too many cupcakes!! I try to do my part and I know many parents do too.
This is a two pronged problem. Do we want the district to provide lunches and if so what? How can we get the junk food brought in by many kids banned?
