When it's time for lunch, I don't even go to the cafeteria. I walk through the hallways and meet up with my friends who have different class schedules than me, then when the period's over, I just go to class.
I I wait to eat when I get home, which is usually Greek yogurt, popcorn, or fruit, then I eat dinner. I think my school's lunch is disgusting and unhealthy, and one of the culprits to why I got so fat during middle school. Is this bad? Should I eat it anyways?
Yes! Go and eat lunch.

No, it's good. School lunches are disgusting anyway.
And this is why I am so glad we don't have school lunch here. I remember watching Jamie Oliver's show about the cafeteria food in the US, looks disgusting. I don't blame you for not wanting to eat it, but maybe you should bring your own lunch instead?
If you take a good breakfast and a good dinner, you could get away with it I think. If you barely eat breakfast than you could be starving your body which is not a good idea. Your body will react with disturbed processes which will eventually make you develop symptoms :o
Nah I don't have any school lunch, I have a fairly big breakfast then 5 hours late lunch comes around I go to the gym then finish school and have a big dinner, as long as you get sufficient nutrition by the end of the day it doesn't matter when it is.
No, it's not bad. But you should eat A lunch. Even if it's one you bring from home. Bring something from home. That way, you won't starve until you get home. I understand if the food as school is disgusting and unhealthy, but you should eat something - even if it's an apple and something else.
Pack your lunch if you dont want school food Thats too long to go withot food Especially if you're trying to lose weight Basically, your bodybwill store fat instead of burn it because it doesn't know when you're going to be eating mext, so you're not going to lose weight
I never ate at school because the smell alone was already so disgusting that I didn't even wanna try. but I went out with friends grab something else... eating nothing at all is probably not the best idea
I agree with you school lunches are not really healthy First Lady Michelle Obama has been working on making this better and so far some things have improved but i do credit her for all she was able to do but school lunches wasn't good and healthy when I was a teen in Middle school i really never ate lunch especially in High school either maybe a salad.
I must Agree, @RainbowFanGirl, Lunches have Changes Bunches... Since I was in School. My lunches were Always delicious, Nutritious, and if There was Something I didn't Like, Mom would Pack me a Bagged lunch, which was Not often. Many students too were Allowed at lunch, to Leave and Walk down Street to Eat. Since Obama's wife took Over with the Menu, it is Heard tell Like feeding Slop to a Sow. Would her Own little Angels Eat this Stuff? Enough. If you Feel it is a Bad deal, either Pack a few Things to Tie you Over until you get Home, Or until the bell Rings, Go it Alone. Good luck and Great question, Thanks for Sharing. xx
I don't think it's good to skip lunch and not eat anything, however, I can definitely agree that most school lunches are unhealthy and disgusting. I would recommend just packing your lunch. Bring some healthy foods and snacks you can eat so that way, you're eating something that is good for you and you won't be missing the meal all together.
I always enjoyed school lunch. I was the type to grab at my friend's plate if they didn't finish, but even then, there were tons of countless that didn't eat lunch. They either brought their own lunches, skipped eating entirely, or just sat at the table and barely ate to be in the company of friends.
It makes sense that you don't eat anything from the school cafeteria. But it is also important to eat so you have energy that can sustain you out for the rest of the school hours. Maybe pack some fruit from home or a sandwich of your choice. That way you do have something instead of just not eating until you get home.
No, most school lunches are like that - greasy and tasteless, just gross. I never ate lunch at my school and it wasn't even bad it was just drowning in fat and oils, my body can't even digest that so I'd get sick if I eat there. I would usually just bring an apple or some cherry tomatoes to school that I'd have instead.
It's not good or bad, it is what it is. If you don't like the lunch, don't eat it. If your mom is paying for it, it's something of a waste of money-but not all school lunch is yummy, depending on where you are the lasagna can be a pool of grease and cheap beef, the tacos also same deal, I get it. I'm in the middle-I can't judge you for not eating. :)
I never ate anything in the cafeteria because I didn't want to spend the money there. I prepared a sandwich and cheese & crackers each day and packed it with me to school. Just eating that would help curb my snacking later on.
I was the exact same way. I was never even hungry during lunch time, and any time I would try to eat, the other kids would gross me out by opening their mouths, chewing loudly, etc., making me lose my appetite. I say if you're not hungry, don't eat. Some people don't require three meals a day or don't require anything between morning and evening. Your body will tell you if it needs food, and one of the worst things you can do is force yourself to eat when you're not hungry.
You should eat something. You can always bring an apple with you and eat it during lunch time. Since it's portable you can definitely just take it with you and eat it while you're talking to your friends.
Ugh, I hate the food at my school. In the uk all schools are obsessed with being healthy. Like they don't put any salt in the food, it's low fat, barely any cheese, no ketchup around. It sucks, and you're always hungry after. Man I wish I went to your school. American schools are so unhealthy but hell... You need it after 4 hours of education.
you're right school lunch is like prison food in most areas (mine included) aaand sometimes those kitchens have mice (mine included it's like the dark side of ratatouille up in there) . so I would suggest packing a lunch just to get u through the day? but other than that, awesome as long as u eat a healthy breakfast <:) *thumbs up*
I think nutrition wise, its good not to eat it, but instead maybe you should bring a lunch box with you. I skip meals all the time. Sometimes I go until 6pm without eating one meal because I'm just not hungry until later on in the day. I think you need to eat something, or at least stock up on lots of water throughout classes:)
I feel ya. Me too I used to not eat the cafeteria's food, it tasted indeed gross. I used to be disgusted by their food to the point even I'm near the school kitchen I'm dead. While I don't blame you for refusing to eat school lunch :P , you could at least bring you with you something practical like a small grilled cheese sandwich or a cereal bar along with vitamin water. It's better than nothing, you would want to have some energy throughout a long day.
No, I don't blame you. School lunches are supposed to be healthy, but they're the complete opposite. All those weird substitutions they make so that they don't serve extra calories, just makes the food over processed. If anything just bring a snack to school, so you won't go hungry the whole day. As long as you're getting all your nutrients and meeting your dietary needs, you're good.
