For most children, eating is literally a chore! They'd be up and running but as soon as food is served, they switch off. Exception would be their favourite meal. As a parent, you'd agree that you can't keep serving them only their favourites, their diet must be balanced.
Eating at school is another story entirely, partly because you're not there and teachers/day care attendants may not have the time and patience to wait for the kid who stalls in eating the way a parent would. There’s a class full of kids to attend to. You can however pack foods they’d jump at, either by introducing new meals or tweaking daily staples.
