Hot Lunch at School?

If it was up to me, I would not have ANY hot lunch at ANY school. I think it’s a waste of time and money. You don’t get more nutrition because it’s hot (read: warm) and they mostly offer pizza and (really awful) nuggets and frozen fish fillets and stuff because that’s what kids might be willing to buy.

I’d have two or three kinds of sandwiches available, fruit, fresh veggies, cookies, milk, apple juice, and that’s about it. Food. Nourishment. It’s NOT a restaurant, folks! The stuff they serve at the elementary schools is awful – and they make the kids take 5 items to get every food group – and at least 2 of them go right into the trash bin. I nearly gagged on the “nuggets”. Sandwiches would be fresher, too, than the pre-made stuff they re-heat.

Who started the idea that a “hot” lunch would be a better idea?

Maybe I’m prejudiced because I always took my lunch to school, except for once in awhile in 7th and 8th grade when the school had hot dogs or spanish rice (and back then they actually cooked all the food there, didn’t just re-heat stuff) or in high school when the cheerleaders sold sloppy joes on Wednesdays to raise money.

Just think of the savings if they don’t need stoves or microwave ovens. Likely they’d need fewer staff members too. Food would be fresher, and it could likely be done quicker. No more fried foods and stuff that tastes like I imagine cardboard would.
