The British government’s new regulations that require schools to serve healthy lunches aren’t going over too well with some English children. They’re not overly impressed with the more nutritious fare being served up at their schools; they want their hamburgers, fries, and sugary drinks back on school menus. Some parents feel sorry for the kids, stating that children won’t eat what’s not appetizing to them, no matter what, and have even sold them banned food though the gates of a northern English school, according to a story posted by The New York Times.
