Students in Farmington Area are Getting Their Fruits +Veggies
I am very impressed. I know how easy it can be to not get your veggies and fruits. However, recently about 85% of kids went through a lunch line at Mt. Blue High School's new food court to the salad bar to take more vegetables and fruits!
School officials in RSU 9 are working on expanding their offerings and getting healthier choices in vending machines. Not only do these efforts look to address the need of health foods for a healthy body and academic success, but with obesity rates growing, and the cuts in physical education due to budget issues, the program hopes to create healthier kids and in the long term healthier adults.
