Why are fast foods frequently served in school or college cafeterias?

I am attempting to tackle the afromentioned questions for my research paper in my english class. As I wandered around from college to college or school to school, I discovered that most cafetaria or food providers are likely to serve a fast foods or frozen foods like corn dogs, hamburger, french fries or nachos. As one of the college student, I am devastated seeing those foods getting into children's belly, which is very unhealthy for their growth. In business perspective, I find out that the selling cycle of providing frozen or fast foods is much beneficial rather than preparing vegetables or meats. Not only are they have an extended period of expiration but also those are foods that children like to eat. This is my thought by far for my research paper. If you guys willing to propose ideas or throw out a question regarding this topic, it will a very much help for me. You are free to see it of any point of views. Thanks
