What about encouraging students to bring their own lunches from home? Not a great idea. Every last teacher we consulted wholly agreed with Bebell: “Often what kids bring from home is less nutritious than the school lunch — though the kids may like it better. Many of the really nutritious lunches that parents send with their kiddies rest comfortably, nearly intact, in the trash barrel.”

The American Academy of Pediatrics joined the partnership to promote healthy eating in the schools; but for decades prior to this, pediatricians have been educating, pleading, and railing to get parents to take better nutritional care of their children.

The problem is not that children don’t have the knowledge to make proper food choices – surveys and tests show that they do. As do the adults. So “why do we keep reaching for those extra large orders of french fries when we know too much fat is a slow form of poison?” asks Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman. To determine the answer, the USDA is launching a “behavioral nutrition initiative” to study why Americans — kids and adults alike — make the exercise and food choices they do.

Said a fifth grade teacher in Utah, “Typical brown bag: chips, cookies, white-bread-and-jam sandwich, pouch of juice that contains no fruit. Not a vitamin in a bag full. Whether the student packed it or a parent did, that kind of malnutrition certainly isn’t the school’s fault.”

People don’t guess at what time the urgent situation can occur. So, safety officials and doctors proposes us to obtain individual first aid kit in workplace, office, home, car.
