School Lunches: Healthy Choices vs. Crowd Pleasers

Childhood obesity is a worsening problem across the country. Will mandating that schools serve healthier lunches help control the problem? Or should children and their parents have the right to choose and learn to make their own healthy choices? Perspectives Flip Books are like two books in one: Start from one end and learn why some people argue schools should ban junk food and serve healthier lunches. Then flip it over and discover why others argue students should make their own choices. Critical thinking questions help you analyze both perspectives and form your own opinions about the issue.
