Oh boo hoo. When I was in school, our big treat was to get a Coke when the clubs were meeting. We had no snack machines.

I have seen some of the kids. Don't look like too many are starving to me. Far from it. When I was in school we did not have drink or snack machines.

Unless those snack machines were stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables, they had no reason being there.

Snack machines were removed so schools could comply with new nutritional standards for schools. I see the kids daily while waiting in the pick up lines...I don't see many that look to be starving.

Whoever decided to put vending machines in schools should have been smacked upside the head with a dead fish. I remember when they were in my high school, and how the kids would line up before the start of the school day, or after school was over, to get some kind of snack. The machines were only turned on before the first bell rang (8:20 AM), and after the dismissal bell rang (3:30 PM).

Most kids use to get a snack at break which was after 1st block. Then lunch after 2nd block. How are they starving? Lunch is only 3 hrs after school starts.. eat something before you leave home.

"Breaks"? "Blocks"? When I was in school you went from 8 am to 12 noon with 5 min each hour to get to the next class, 12 to 1 pm for lunch, then from 1 to 3:30 with 5 min each hour to get to the next class.

Kids now have it too easy.

The school lunch is not worth the money we pay for it!!! My child has the LAST lunch at the high school, that is around 1-1:30, so he would always get chips,crackers,ect at break so now he has to wait until 1 to eat, yes they need to bring the snack machines back, don't put candy and honey buns in it, but bars or crackers. Something that is healthy. But you give these kids one slice of pizza, that's been cooked all morning and a handful of fries,yes they are going to be hungry. Something needs to give with the cost and quality of food in OUR school system.

I think all parents who pay for school lunches should make a visit a couple times a year to eat at the school, just to see what "lunch" consists of.

You'd be surprised.

When my son was in school I went a few times, and they had decent meals, but still nothing like what they had when I was in school. I don't know where the money is going, but it's sure not going into the food served up in the cafeteria...

@Bremen mom - I had the last lunch period a few times at my old high school. I hated it because they almost always ran out of food before serving everyone. We had three lines for lunch:

1. Hot plate line - featured the more filling items, like country fried steak (always my favorite), spaghetti, fried chicken, and other things

2. Fast food line - featured the more "quick fix" items, like tacos, hamburgers, grilled cheese sandwiches and soup, etc.

3. Cold cuts/salad line - you could get either a ham or turkey sandwich, or peruse the salad bar.

The only time all three lines served the same thing was if they were doing either pizza, or chicken fillet sandwiches. The latter was nothing like a real Chick-Fil-A sandwich, but many believed it was a close second.

If you had the last lunch period, the choices might not be as good as they were for first or second lunch periods. Often times one line would run out, so you were then left with one of the other two lines. I think enough students complained to their parents, and to the teachers, that after a while, especially my Senior year, they never ran out of food again.

"why can't my child get a job?" "Why is he not prepared for college?" "Why doesn't she know how to show up to work on time?" Why did they show up to a job interview in a t-shirt?".....

These are questions you should be asking, not worried about a snack. Send an apple!

That must have been a few years ago!!!!! Because the run out of it quiet often!!!!!! So you must have had a small class, because the 9th grade class the most of the Seniors eat with is the largest freshman Bremen has ever had. And the Senior class is not even getting to put baby pictures in the year book because there is no room. So don't set hear and say the lunch is good, you must been a big person who would eat anything!!!!! So keep your nose out of what is going on at Bremen school now. If you don't know what is going on don't comment!!!! And what I have to pay, the food should me descent

Soooo... if you're so upset with the food service at the high school, you have two options:

1. Go to a school board meeting or a PTA meeting and grill The Powers That Be about the state of the lunches

Or

2. Fix your kid a lunch and stop paying for something you find so horrible.

Just because some of the student's are OBESE isn't a good enough reason to remove the snack machines! Why not teach a class on dieting and self control for the OBESE and leave the machines alone. I know there are a lot of OBESE KIDS at BHS but you can't blame that on the school. If they would walk as much as they stay on the computer they might could work those OBESE ASSES off. Put the damn snack machines back!
