Top Ten Reasons to Hate School Lunch

School lunch was never fresh and healthy to eat. Students waste more food at school than in school becuase of the quality. Here is the reasons why school lunches is terrible!

The Top Ten

1 They buy packaged food instead of ingredients to cook.

Well, you can't blame them for not having the time to cook for 3,000 kids every day. I don't love school lunches, but we should be thankful that they feed us anyway. - Garythesnail

They just use frozen dry burgers st my school


2 It was never healthy

Breakfast is just pure sugar. Elementary kids have like 50 grams of sugar IN THE MORNING ALONE! I'm an adult, and I can't even have 10% of the sugar that's in their breakfast FOR AN ENTIRE DAY. (I have high blood sugar so I have to monitor my sugar intake)

It's just rubber chicken nuggets

That is so true

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! SLPS MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHERS EXCEPT PE TEACHER, you are not concerned about a student's BMI. Give healthier lunches if you don't give recess. Make it good, to.

3 Cafeteria workers are too lazy to cook

Too lazy to cook for thousands of kids? Each DAY? If you've got such a big problem, bring a lunchbox. Their jobs are harder than you think. - Garythesnail

They gave me a 2 day old hamburger so I never ate school lunch again

Tye school lunch may not be good,but I disagree with this. - cosmo

4 It can make you sick

One of my friends said her "cousin" found a gnat in her salad. And another friend said she found a toenail in her food, but the lunch lady said it was a pear. Also, my close friend's siblings threw up from the pizza they serve. Finally, some of my friends think there are worms in the applesauce, but it's just cinnamon. - Powerfulgirl10

I'll agree with this one, because many things they serve leave me in the bathroom for half of 7th period. - Garythesnail

One time someone in my class threw up and got really sick because of the school pizza. I bring my lunch more then half of the time though.

I ate a hot dog with chilli that was nice until I was almost finished then I felt like I was gonna throw up. Then I knew I had to see a military recruiter at 3PM that day so I clenched my fist and shrugged the feeling away.

5 It has no flavor in it

The mashed potatoes they serve at my school are half flavorless and also dry on some parts. - Powerfulgirl10

6 You need to pay to get better food

At my school, we usually don't have to pay for anything we eat. - Powerfulgirl10

The food is expensive
Lets compare!
1 small soda from school : $1.50
1 big pack of soda from the store: $4.00
1 brownie from school: $1.00
1 packet of brownies: $2.00

7 It's very disgusting

Here in Finland, the chicken is so flavourless, that you can't if it is chicken or soft wood. And the sauce is as thick as glue plus the potatoes might have some black stuff inside.

I remember once seeing some blood on s burger...

Exactly. Everyone at my school like the pizza, which is waaay to cheesy and waaay too salty. Then they made fun of me for getting a hot dog...Stupid classmates. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

8 Vegetables and fruit don't taste very fresh

I used to like the school's tangerines, but now they taste too juicy and sweet. They are also more orange than the sun because they're fake. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

And neither does there milk - NESSquid

Its always canned junk and not good and fresh fruits and veggie'sc - RevolNiartRuasonid

9 You can throw up easily
10 It's not enough food

Turkey Twizzlers anyone?

The Contenders

11 They force you to finish it

Just refuse. What can they do, kill you? Yell at you? Then just leave. I'm just trying to help people stand up for themselves.

One of my friends from first to third grade said at another school, se had to be forced to eat all of the food they serve. I mean, kids get FULL, you can't force them to fill up their bellies. - Powerfulgirl10

My high school doesn't do this

This happened to my friend.

Emily: Can I please leave?

Dinner lady: Do you not like your sorbet?

Emily: No, I've never really liked it…

Dinner lady: Eat it.

Emily: But I feel really ill…

Dinner lady: YOU MUST EAT IT!

12 The food is fake

They lie and call the chicken sandwich Chick fil a sandwich in my old school but it was nothing like it and Grey meat. They should be sued for copying the name first of all. Second, it was definitely not from chick fil a you liars you just said that to get kids money.

Ikr! One day when I was lined up ready to be served garbage, I seen what actually happens behind the scenes. They don't even cook the food! So it was friday, and it was pizza. I saw them take the rectangular pizza in the box out of a moldy fridge! Then when I ate it, the top of the cheese came off and it was nothing but hard, nasty crust on the bottom and it smelled rotten. I wanted to throw up!

13 Tastes like mcdonald's food, but worse

The food may be bad, but at least McDonald’s has flavor.

14 Pink slime
15 Pig meals and sloppys

good meal

16 Potatoes are rubber
17 They only bother cooking better at Christmas
18 Old food
19 They buy food from a restaurant and serve it and claim it as their own
