  • - Get ready for that puke shot.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - I'm definitely not a nutritionist,

  • but I care about what my kids eat and what I eat.

  • - We get a calendar every month that lists

  • the breakfast and lunch that she gets at school,

  • and it looks good.

  • - I remember the cafeteria lunches growing up

  • being really bland and dry.

  • - They tasted like cardboard.

  • She's in the same school district as I was, so

  • hoping they improved.

  • - I'm sure it'll be some sort of combination of

  • processed and heated foods

  • and then maybe like a token vegetable or fruit.

  • (upbeat music)

  • This is a substance I'm not familiar with.

  • Can somebody tell me what this is?

  • - See?

  • Blob.

  • And it smells like nothing.

  • - Nothing.

  • Just tastes like beige.

  • - Seriously, this is what they give at school?

  • - It says fruits, grains, vegetables, protein, dairy.

  • My only question is is if this is what we're

  • supposed to be eating, does this chicken salad

  • sandwich reflect that?

  • (upbeat music)

  • - I'm not excited about this.

  • Not at all.

  • - This is definitely like a microwaved moment

  • right now, I can tell.

  • - Oh, it's so gross.

  • - This sandwich looks like a scrotum.

  • - The meatballs look like they can bounce.

  • - This tastes like it was prepared maybe a month ago.

  • - I can plug my nose when I try it, right?

  • - It bounced.

  • - No one's seasoned this obviously.

  • This is like tiny water balloons in my mouth right now.

  • - It tastes a little dish watery.

  • - Very sad corn.

  • - Where did they find this?

  • Did it fall off a truck or something?

  • - I would probably just eat these.

  • (upbeat music)

  • It's like a shoelace posing as meat.

  • - Very pliable.

  • - Aren't they supposed to be orange?

  • - Why can't I pierce it past a certain point?

  • - Pretty bendy.

  • - Is it really an egg?

  • - That is disgusting.

  • - I don't know what this ham meat is supposed to be.

  • - I wouldn't give that to my dog.

  • - How is that meat?

  • That's rubber.

  • - Almost a fifth of the entire day's sodium

  • in this one packet.

  • - That's so bad.

  • How do children eat this?

  • It was actually way worse than I thought it would be.

  • - Everything felt a little rubbery.

  • - I'm really worried that this is what I depend on

  • while I'm away from her.

  • - I just think about the kids who don't have access

  • to meals and this is how they're gonna eat lunch,

  • and I'm just kinda bummed out

  • because this is what we're offering them, and I think

  • we can do better, and we should do better.

  • (peaceful music)

- Get ready for that puke shot.
