School Lunch

So this is the type of lunches they usually serve at my school. Mac and cheese, some bar be que chicken, and fries, youre also supposed to take some milk as well. I feel as if school lunches should be much healthier than this. There should be a variety of fruits and veggies to choose from and healthier foods. Water should be a plus and especially for kids who are on free and reduced meals, they do not have the option of getting water because water costs one dollar and sometimes people dont even have as much as a dollar to spare. Water is vital, just as vital as the daily intake of calcium.
