Your Turn: Should Schools Serve Healthier Food?Sep 12th, 2010 • Category: Kids from Around the World
The U.S. Senate passed a bill to get more healthy food into schools and to limit the amount of junk food served in school cafeterias. These kids from the Elmhurst branch of the Queens Public Library in New York tell us what they think.
I think that schools should have a petition, and the most voted will be served three times a week, while the others once.
I think that this is a good idea, but they should serve just maybe a little bit of junk food.
I think that the schools should serve more international food.
I think that junk food should be allowed in moderation.
I want to see foods like salads made with vegetables and fruits that people enjoy eating every day, and maybe corn on the cob. Healthy choices make healthy bodies.
