June 19—Fremont City Schools and other Sandusky County (Ohio) school districts are preparing for change in their meal menus in the coming school year, thanks to a federal initiative designed to put healthier foods on kids' plates.

She said the district is looking at the changes in a positive manner, with those menu tweaks corresponding with the district's focus on comprehensive wellness.
