There are two ways to answer this question.
First, yes, school lunches are bad. My school supposedly had a former Food Network person overseeing our cafeterias and the food was still mediocre-tasting, and definitely not good for you. They were making improvements my senior year–offering a choice of fresh veg to replace fries, etc.
On the other hand, it’s a damn good thing that public schools make lunches available. It’s even better when the kids who need it can get their meals discounted or free. The facts are that kids need food for brain power. Feed them and their scores shoot up. Even something as simple as giving one box of milk to every child, every day, boosts performance and health. Kids need access to good nutrition. School cafeterias should provide that access, for at least one meal a day (breakfasts are also crucial!) and not become cash cows for the administration as they have in America. My school had soda machines for most of my years there and only later switched to water only. Deals with poor nutrition devils aren’t worth it.
A poor lunch is better than no lunch. But we can do better than that.
