The most some of the new schools can do it put stuff in the warming tray.
I know exactly what you're saying, it's really, just, well, weird to see what they serve in the school cafeterias. It's all still-packaged "something" that the kids grab off the piping hot tray and place onto their plate. The lunch lady doesn't even touch the food. Slides the tray into and out of the warmer, that's about it.
My kids bring their lunches, they hate the stuff there. It's just....weird.
Last night the TV was droning as I was reading. I didn't bother to turn it off as "The Biggest Looser" was doing a bit regarding overweight high school kids. The trainer reviewed everything that was being served in one high school; pizza, fries, donuts, cinnamon rolls etc. The school said their effort to move to healthier food involved changing to turkey pepperioni on a pizza with wheat crust. Laughable if it wasn't so pathetic. The trainer looked straight into the camera and said there wasn't anything being served that he would eat. For heaven's sake, the vegetable of the day was tater tots
My kids take their lunches also. Some of their peers who know better are envious at the copious amounts of delicious healthy food they get to consume.

(Sense... some don't make any, some don't have any - or so the former would appear to the latter.)
