Kids shouldn't be relying on their parents to make them school lunches when they're in high school; they should learn to start cooking by themselves before that. I started when I was 8; thus I never ate lunch at school. I didn't have the drive to make my own lunch in the morning, but I had the option. Its not the Governments fault, they're following what they were taught, and so are students. If the parents don't teach them to fend for themselves and become independent than I say let them eat the school lunches. If and when I have kids they'll surely be well trained in the culinary arts before they enter high school. what they do with it is up to them.
