Healthier food choices at OLCHS's Lunch!
Obesity is one of the leading causes of death in America. Have you ever noticed why in other countries, there is rarely any obesity? Especially in teens? Because they actually serve real and healthy food to students. A lot of students have complained of not enough healthy food choices in our school lunches, and many want to lose weight, or maintain it. Unhealthy foods such as fries, burgers, and pizza are put in front displays, yet we barely see any Heathly food choices at all. And if there are, they are hidden in a little corner were rarely any students go to at all. The tactic is not to place Healthy foods AND unhealthy foods together. It is to try to eliminate the temptations and try to cram the unhealthy foods in a little space where not a lot of people will go, just as they did with the small healthy selection, and have an even wider selection of fruits and vegetables and more natural selections and have them displayed where everybody can see them and be tempted to grab something healthy. Food addiction is an actual thing, sugar is as addictive as cocaine, and if the government will not do anything about it, then we as a community should speak up for the students that do want more healthier food options.
