also as do the kids have to pay for school lunches?
in secondary school (high school) in Ireland, we don't get lunch - you bring you own
I'll try to explain it the best I can. First off our system is all screwed up.
The schools provide lunches.
The kids pay for the lunches. Or they bring their own lunch.
Years ago (like when I was in school) our lunch portions were larger.
Over the years people have gottn' fatter.
Instead of trying to teach kids and parents to eat healthier and avoid fast foods, they decided to try and starve the kids by cutting the lunch portions.
The gov. thinks that a calorie is a calorie, but its not.
The stupid gov. plan doesnt work, kids and parents are pissed, kids leave school hungry.
Because they are hungry and broke they eat more fast food and junk.
In short our gov. is not fixing a problem, they're just creating another one.
