School Meals Still a Hot Topic in Florissant School Districts

Ferguson-Florissant superintendent took to the airwaves to discuss the new nutrition protocols, while Hazelwood parents have been vocal about it all year.

Since the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year, school lunches have been a hot topic among parents and students.

In the Hazelwood School District, parents and students have been sounding off about the newly enacted nutrition standards and requirements of students, but in the Ferguson-Florissant School District Superintendent Art McCoy sees a great change happening with his district’s school menu.

In an interview with KMOX earlier this week, McCoy said that students understand the healthy message and standards that the district is trying to employ.

Regular potato chips have been replaced with baked chips and French fries are a memory as salad bars have taken their place. McCoy said students are required to choose one or two items from the salad bar each day.

What are your thoughts on the school menu items? Are they exciting your children or the exact opposite?

I LOVE this, and am welcoming the MUCH healthier change!!! The best part is instead of just one day changing the food items, student's are being educated at the sametime. It's been a long time coming and I believe everyone invloved has known that. Finally, young children are starting to learn about healthier food choices in the classroom. Now, they can even apply their knowledge to make healthier choices at lunch. Thanks to all Involved :)
