When it comes to school lunch, there are two things the majority of kids seem to agree on: Most of what cafeterias serve is gross and unhealthy (and, at times, downright unsanitary); and anything with sugar is worth its weight in gold. Despite rules prohibiting food trading at many schools to protect students with allergies, there's still a lot of snack swapping going on in dark corners, and sweet treats are perpetually in big demand. We asked kids from around the country to tell us about their favorite foods, legendary lunchroom trades, and what always ends up in the garbage.

Check out the slideshow above to see what these kids had to say about school lunches.
