The foundation of for lifelong good health is laid in childhood. The time spent in school contributes immersive experience for children than anywhere else (Martin et al., 2014). This means that schools can impact the children’s health either positively or negatively.

It is clear that these foods are higher in fat compared with foods sold as part of the school meal programs. However, with a strong collaboration of both educators and policymakers can help prevent and alleviate this challenge
