Fast food chains are a rapidly growing industry. My favorite fast food restaurant is Taco Bell. Schools should not serve fast food because it’s unhealthy, expensive, and takes time.
While everyone generally knows that fast food is not good for their health, however people still eat it for various reasons. Most people that buy fast food have low incomes, are uneducated, and/or are people just trying to save a couple of bucks. Most people trying to save money are buying fast food and it is costing their health in the long run. This will eventually end up costing people even more money.
Some schools order fast food. The reason why some schools eat fast food is because they don’t have enough teachers or time to cook. The students will be use to eating school lunch than fast foods. Fast food caries more calories than school lunch.
Many points can be brought up when debating for or against fast food. Different statement may show the good side, while others show the bad side. Fast food has caused diseases, because, according to cbsnews.com, “Different parts of different cows are blended together for the ground beef in fast food. So, if one cow was diseased, it is very likely that the entire batch will be infected.” This isn't always noticed by the workers, and therefore may cause the people who eat it to become infected, too. Fast food has had outbreaks E. Coli, salmonella, and
The fast food industry both feeds and prays off the young. Pioneers in developing marketing strategies to target children, the fast-food chains have even infiltrated the nation's schools through lunchroom franchises and special advertising packages that answer public education's need for funds; in every way possible, giving the children a loyal friend to rely on. In many franchises, teenagers are perfect candidates for low-paying, low-skilled, short-term jobs and constitute a large part of the fast-food chains' workforce; and often practically run individual locations, having more responsibility than most adults.
Brand name fast-food items now account for almost 50% of schools sales (Brockett). As one can see, the financial benefits of the brand names in lunches can help boost a school’s declining profit. If fast-food was taken away from menus, many schools would fail to break even and have to cut their staff (Brockett). “Financially, it’s better for us if we go up to 400 meals” said Amy Hedrick, a food service supervisor in California (Lehmann). If she tries to sell off brand pizzas, her profit declines dramatically as she only sells 250 to 300 pizzas. If kids are being forced to eat healthy through their school lunch, they will leave the school over their lunch hour and go find a fast food restaurant. Even if they don’t leave, will taking away their brand name foods really solve the problem? The solution is not to frighten kids away with putting bans on school lunches. Rather, teach them about nutritional values of the healthier options and leaving them the choice, as it talks about in “The State Has No Place In The Lunch Bags Of A Nation”. If students know the benefits of eating healthy, they will start to turn away from fast
Not only do both of the reasons above prove and show great examples of why or why not schools really should or shouldn't let school cafeterias be transformed into fast food courts supplied by fast food companies, in the end it's the school's themselves who make the choices to change the foods that they supply. Therefore here are three examples at which they can use to see if there school is even ready to make the leap toward fast food companies supplying lunches. First the school will need to be sure students can afford the lunches,second make sure the school can afford it as well, and thirdly the schools will need to have make sure the students are willing to go along with it. Although there is several more steps in which changing to a fast
Schools should not sell fast food for lunch. Students that eat fast food at lunch are not eating healthy. They can become obese and have future health problems because of what they eat in their childhood. Some students eat school lunches everyday, which means they are eating the same unhealthy, fast food meal daily. Therefore, schools should not sell fast food for lunch because they cause obesity and health issues in the future.
Fast food restaurants should allow everyone to have healthier food choices. On top of that, these restaurants should also allow lower costs of salad, fruits, and other healthier food choices. The results of eating fast food or eating junk food every day is anyone can have disease called hemophilia. One source says, “Haemophiliacs have been shown to have a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease, most likely attributable to the hypocoagulable state that results from the clotting factor deficiency” (Majumdar 4).

Having fast foods at school has two sides a great one and a poor one the nice one is that the kids wouldn’t want to miss school there would probably be one hundred percent of attendance if there was fast foods at school. Another, great reason why school should have fast foods is because the school can make a little more money by having fast foods.
Initially, I agreed with Cheryl Sateri's viewpoint on this topic; however, after further analysis, my opinion changed. I believe the school lunch program simply needs to be revamped. Sateri states, "A fast-food restaurant can provide a convenient, profitable service that will improve the diets of high school students" (Clouse 420). While I find this to be somewhat of a true statement, I feel that the numerous underprivileged children may not benefit from this option.
Maize South Middle School should not serve fast food because fast food will cost more than other lunches. If the school starts serving fast food they will have to buy more and more food which will cost more money for schools. Since it’ll cost schools more it will cost students more for their lunches as well. Public schools such as Maize South are supposed to be cheap and inexpensive for kids who can’t afford anything more and if they serve more expensive fast food some kids may not be able
As fast food restaurants continue to market their products in schools, American schools continue to decline in the world’s ranking and are in the double digits depending on what source you view. That would be no surprise to Eric Schlosser as he explains that “Children spend about seven hours a day in school, one hundred and fifty days a year, in school…[and] today the nation’s fast food chains are marketing their products in public schools through conventional ad campaigns, classroom teachers
