From The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: Like a number of schools throughout Wisconsin, Oconomowoc High School is trying to tackle that seemingly intractable barrier in the fight to improve childhood nutrition: the school lunch. Many schools have added salad bars, but the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine asserts that most lunches remain high in saturated fat and cholesterol and low in fiber- and nutrient-rich food.
RELATED...from The Boston Globe: Low student participation in the Newton (Mass.) school district's lunch program is one reason behind a ballooning food-services budget deficit. The schools expect to lose $905,000 on food service next school year, up from $416,000 in 2006.
