Nutritional meals and knowledge of nutrition are two weapons needed to fight the battle on school lunches. Healthy menus play a significant role in training the minds of our future. Nutritional meals have been shown to improve student academic performance. Several school systems around the nation are taking strides towards making the meals served more suitable to students. Money, quality of the product, and children’s attitudes need to be addressed in order for change. Change will not happen over night; therefore, we should not sweep the problem under the rug. Teachers, as well as parents, need to take an active role in encouraging and teaching good nutritional eating values.
