System favors cheaper food that often is less nutritious
FromThe Chicago Tribune: Parents often find the rules stacked against them as they try to remove less healthful entrees from school cafeteria menus. The national lunch program is underfunded, forcing providers to serve cheap, often low-quality, foods. The system is also structured to let children's preferences dictate the menu because if kids don't take the lunches, the food providers get less money.
