Freedom has a Future: 92% say don't ban parent lunches

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that an overwhelming 92% of American Adults believe students should be allowed to bring lunch from home. Only three percent disagree, with six percent (6%) undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Support is slightly stronger among those with children in the home compared to those without children living with them.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of all adults think lunch brought from home is healthier for students to eat than a school cafeteria lunch. Nineteen percent (19%) say a cafeteria lunch is healthier, but another 22% are not sure.
