Yeah, look at what they are eating! It's easy to gain weight from eating a school lunch, since it is mainly processed food. A person, who exercises regularly and watches his/her diet at home, but eats food from the school's cafeteria will gain weight! Try it and see!

Years ago, lunch served in the school's cafeteria was more nutritional than today's. We need to go back to those days when we did not have an epidemic of obesity.
