Do school lunches include a sweet dessert or just fruit?

I don't have kids but I was looking at the lunch menu for my town schools and every day listed some kind of fruit for dessert. No cake, cookies or any sweet desserts. As a child in the 60's and 70's I remember having a sweet dessert available most days. I found this menu online for a school from 1965 and this represents basically what lunch looked like in my time. Dessert was always my favorite, especially cake! Probably why I've always had a weight problem. ;-) Wish they had only served us fruit!

Monday: Beef goulash, green beans, peanut butter cake

Tuesday: Pizza pie, tossed salad, fruit jello

Wednesday: Bowl of chili with crackers, cole slaw, cherry cobbler

Thursday: Oven-fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, buttered corn, peaches or applesauce

Friday: Tuna and noodle casserole, peas and carrots, assorted desserts.

Bread and butter and milk served with all lunches.
