Research has show that over half the children in Britain who take their own lunches to school do not eat properly in the middle on the day. In Britain, schools have to provide meals at lunchtime. Children can chose to bring their own food or have lunch at the school canteen. One shocking finding of this research is that school meals are many healthier than lunches prepared by parents. There are strict standards for the preparation of school meals, which  have to include one piece of fruit and one of vegetables, as well like meat, a dairy item and starchy food like bread or pasta. Lunchboxes examined by researchers contained sweet drinks, crisps and chocolate bar. Children consume twice as much sugar as they should at lunchtime. The research will provides a better understanding of why the percentage of overweight students in Britain have increased in the last decade. Unfortunately, the government cannot criticize parents, but it can remind them of the nutritional value of milk, fruit and vegetables. Small changes in their children’s diet can affect their future healthy. Children can easy develop bad eating habits at this age, and parents are the only ones who can prevent it.
