Students resist healthy menus in Maryland
Dec. 20—Students and school staff members in Prince George's County's Public School, in Marlboro, Md., have noticed a significant change in the lunch menu since last year. However, the students are not necessarily taking advantage.
Amir Baiyina, a senior at Eleanor Roosevelt High School, has noticed a difference in the lunch options available now as compared to his freshman year when cheesesteak sandwiches, chicken patties and French fries dominated the menu.
“There definitely has been efforts to make it more healthy,” Baiyina said.
However, most students prefer the snack line according to Baiyina who says there are good days and bad days for lunch. Taco Tuesdays is popular among the students at Roosevelt High. As a measure to curb unhealthy eating, vending machines have been shut down in the school, according to Baiyina.
