As for canteen/tuck shop. His first school, I loved their menu. Lots of healthy options and a real focus on decent foods. The lady running it would even make up massive batches of home cooked meals and freeze them. Things like fried rice with BBQ pork or spaghetti bolognese. It was great and he would have an order once a week. His other 2 schools...I can count on one hand the number of orders he's had in the last 5 years. The menus offer very few healthy options. Even when they have different events DS can't have the special meals because it's more often than not a sausage sizzle. I've offered to send our own but they won't have a bar of it.

DS1 does Little Athletics and soccer. For Athletics when you sign up you get a calendar which every month has a free thing from Maccas. It's either an apple bag, calciyum or a snack wrap. When they give out the weekly award DS1 used it for a snack wrap. He has never had a burger. At the end of year presentation they got a bowling voucher and a free sausage sandwich and slushy with their trophy. I vetoed the slushy and he got water instead.
At soccer the award is a free game at AMF bowling. I love this but I can't send him to play by himself so I see how it makes them money to give the awards.
I think once every now and then is fine but it's not something I like to do every week. I remember my youngest brother would get Maccas bought for him after EVERY game of soccer.. he eats way too much Maccas now. He's not overweight because he exercises but it's not healthy either.

I think it's a small trade off for the, usually, large sponsorship received by McDonalds. No one is being forced to redeem it - it's not like they're turning up after the game with a happy meal for everyone.

With the fat calorie content etc, much of that would be the coke which I would NEVER give to my kids in a million years and if they are the entire sachet of sauce. And you can probably also minus the sneaky chippies us mummies eat too.

I don't have an opinion on this but I really feel like a cheeseburger right now...
