Prision Lunch Better Than School Lunch?

A 17 year old may think of school as a prison. It turns out they may not be that not be far off, in the lunch room at least. Good Magazine compared lunches at correctional facilities and education facilities and found that the trays had similar contents. The price and calorie counts are about the same, but prison gets the points for quality.

“The average prison meal and the average elementary school lunch both consist of one bread item, one starch item and one beverage. But kids get an ounce less meat and they’re usually skimped on either veggies or fruits. Overall prisoners have more options and a little more heft to their meal.”

Efforts are being made to improve school lunch quality. In 2012 the President signed into law the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act to make cafeteria offering more nutritious.
