School cafetarias have to get with the wellness program

foodcafetaria.jpgReaction to the growing number of overweight children in the United States has resulted in schools taking a stricter role in the foods that are allowed to be sold in cafeterias and kiosks.  This is also in response to the federal government’s policy to have schools develop a wellness plan for students. Vendors have to offer snacks in smaller 100-calorie packages and healthier alternatives such as baked instead of fried chips. There will be a lot more fruits and vegetables. Let’s hope the children will not sneak out to the neighborhood Seven-11.  Parents also have a role to play in their children’s diet.  The fact is when one eats proper food – whole grains, fruits and vegetables, the craving for junk food decreases naturally.
