School Lunch

Does your school give out more food to your Elementary child than to your Middle school child?

I ask this because our school gives more food to the Elementary children than to the Middle school children. This seems weird to me since Middle school children are bigger and eat more than an Elementary child does. I was wondering if this is normal or if I am just thinking in the wrong direction.

    My son just started junior high this year, and he gets more food in junior high than in elementary school. More food choices too.

     The menus look about the same, but the middle schoolers are encouraged to take 2 veggies instead of 1 like the elem. kids. The middle school also adds deli sandwiches to the choices if they don't like the hot lunch; the other choices are bagel and yogurt, pb&j, grilled cheese, and chef's salad.

    Our middle and HS students get more food than elementary school.  All schools have multiple hot choices along with a cold sandwhich choice daily.  Just larger portions for the older kids.

    Middle school kids here get the same food as elem kids but larger portions. High school kids have a lot of choices, the amount of food depends on what they pick.

    Our elementary students get healthier meals but not sure on portion sizes.
