On Was the food you ate in school healthy?

Isn't the food for school students contracted out and hauled in instead of being completely prepared on site as it once was?

If this is true what's up with that?

Each school that has their own full kitchen prepares their own meals, but it's all processed. Then the schools that aren't equipped get the food delivered from another school.

Probably a lot healthier than the pre-packaged processed junk they are feeding the kids now. I attended school in the sixties.

I suppose it was healthy enough, I survived. Not too tasty though

The food was not alive, so it could not be healthy.

Most Americans don't realize how good they have it.

The little school I attended had the best dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls and chili. The best cinnamon rolls ever. Of course that was back when schools still served ham and beans or meat loaf (no spam). There was also peaches, pineapple and apples. Too much spinach, hominy and sauerkraut (which I love now). There could have been more vegetables.

Do today's kids even know what hominy is?

I went to Lawrence schools in the late 60's and through the 70's and the food in the schools was excellent. Fresh baked desserts a Chef's Salad choice in middle school and high school. High School was good, but I especially remember South Jr. High, almost restaurant quality.
