lol @ a whole class of 5 year olds ordering at subway. You'd be there all freaking day!
Now, what bread would you like?
which salads? All of them? Ok! Oh, not carrot.
Ok, here you go Mary, go sit down with your roll. Ok, next kid, which bread?
Repeat x 20
Sorry, it was just a funny image

If the OP is raising her child to eat and live healthy, I hardly think one cheese burger is going to unravel that. I think being super uptight about food can have the opposite desired effect.
Of course that's JMO and I'm sure others will disagree.

I am a teacher and there is no way this would fly at our school!

I don't think it's appropriate to take the kids to maccas. Every excursion we ever went on in school, we had to take lunch. It was against the rules to buy lunch. Not all parents can afford or want their children to eat fast food.

Not every parent is as strict with eating. in our house it's a 90/10 rule. Good fruit/veg/dairy 90% of the time and junk as a treat 10%. So I guess your choice is either to remove her from the excursion or allow her a cheese burger.
I hope that didn't come across rude, not the way it was intended

This is not just about it being a 'rare' thing, nor is it about being uptight about food. We can only model good eating options and try to stick to them as much as we can. Schools have a choice though, they are not a 'parent'. I'd pay more for a better place for lunch than McDonald's for the excursion.

School taking kids to McDonald's for lunch--I'm dumbfounded!
An excursion to build a bear? Isn't that a shop? Why would a school take them there?
I would be upset they go to mcdonalds as well, it's a shame when the school encourages bad eating, they should take them somewhere the kids can experience different kinds of food , my nieces school took the year 6 girls to tepannyaki at a Japanese restaurant when they went on an excursion to see Annie last term which I thought was great ( and the kids loved it)

Re: School taking kids to McDonald's for lunch--I'm dumbfounded!
Yeah I'm sort of failing to see the point of any of the excursion. Oh wait is it an end-of-year thing? Like once the teachers have run out of stuff to teach and the last 2 weeks is just a bludge? Then fair game I say. But if it's meant to be edumacational, I can't figure out how going to a toy shop and Maccas fits in anywhere in the curriculum.

My first thought was why on earth are they going to build a bear?
If the McDonalds is a one off i wouldnt mind too much. You could always order from the healthy menu.
