Canadian schools face challenges with healthy meals too

New healthy meal legislation blamed for decline in participation.

Some high schools in Windsor-Essex have seen a "significant decline" in the number of students eating at school cafeterias since last September.

That's according to Jeff Hillman, the superintendent of education with the public school board, who spoke to CBC Windsor's Tony Doucette on the Early Shift on Monday.

The decline is related to new provincial rules that require healthier foods to be served at schools.
