I have a friend that says she will never let her child eat a scool lunch ever again after a news report she saw about 2 months ago. She says that according to the report she saw, that sachool provided wre provided by terrorists. The report said that the food is made so unhealthy that the kids who eat them would not be able to pass the exam in the military, and that is what they want. Who would be there to fight them if we had no army?
( which kind of makes cense about being no military to work with.)

LOL

That sounds weird. I am very skeptical. It doesn't even make sense. Even if that were true, if your child only eats one meal at school 5 days a week, I doubt it would be enough to make them so unhealthy they couldn't be in the military. While some school lunches aren't terribly healthy, they are the same or better than a lot of packaged foods people put in their kids' lunches. Every parent should know what their kids are eating, whether it's from home or a school cafeteria.

I know what my children eat ...

My daughters eat in the school canteen every day. The food is made in the school kitchens. The ingredients are supplied by local suppliers (we live in a region where crops are only treated when they absolutely have to be ... ) and the menus are drawn up with the help of a nutritionist.

I am satisfied that my children get proper food that is not only nutritious and tasty but also pretty varied.

I think the idea is ridiculous honestly. And your friend believes this? Strange. Anyways I am sure the school lunch isn't the healthiest but it isn't any worse then when we were kids. As long as your child is getting well bananced meals at home then I wouldn't worry a whole lot. They will be just fine.
