Re: What I learned from our local preschool for disabled kids....
Also keep in mind that most schools dont have a lot of funding to buy great foods. Fresh foods are expensive and they may not be able to buy good foods and really I hate to say it, but it is pretty normal to have tons fo crap food at school. I went to a school that served pizza and french fries EVERY DAY. They had to offer a veggie and a fruit and milk, but they dont require you to take them all.
Like a pp said, candy is common currency. It is normal to find something that gives some incentive and use it.
