Ohio high schools students adjust to new healthy food options

Mentor High School students have taken the time to learn and adjust to the new health requirements.

Nov. 13—School lunches have seen many changes throughout the past few years to incorporate healthy options for students.

Federal requirements, like the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, have mandated that foods improve in quality to ensure students are getting the nutrition they need.

For some districts, the change has been difficult, with students unhappy with changes or unwilling to eat the new food.

In Mentor Schools, the transition has gone over well, due in part to the district planning ahead, said School Nutrition Supervisor Jeni Lange.
