A law was just passed to try to make lunches served in schools healthier. It was First Lady Michelle Obama’s idea (President Obama’s wife) and now schools around the country that provide lunches for students will serve healthier food, including salads. Will they still serve hamburgers and pizzas? Yes. But maybe less greasy and on whole wheat crusts.
Not everyone is happy about it. For starters, it’s really expensive. To change all the ingredients and menus all over the country it would cost …. $4.5 billion!! Also, some people think that the government doesn’t need to be involved in the kinds of food schools serve. On the other hand, some people believe that if children need to go to school, they deserve healthy choices at lunch so they can do their best. What do you think?
