Show 'n' Tell Nutrition at School
Kuhner, Jeanne Incantalupo
Phi Delta Kappan, v93 n7 p16-20 Apr 2012
The U.S. Congress has passed a measure that would scrap the Child Nutrition Act's requirements and funding for more healthy lunches in schools. Unfortunately, foods of lower nutritional value are more available than healthier snacks in the nation's schools. The author argues that providing students with more fresh fruit and produce, whole grains and healthy protein promotes making healthy choices and can help them develop habits for a healthy lifestyle. Education has the power to help change the trend, the author says.
