MINNEAPOLIS – Any parent will tell you that trying to get kids to eat healthier is tricky business, particularly for teenagers.
So it’s no surprise when kids balk at some of the healthy foods required in the federal school lunch program. But it is a surprise that Wayzata High School responded by pulling out of the program.
And the move is paying off.
Lunchtime at Wayzata is crazy, with 3,300 students, broken into four periods, at the state’s largest high school.
“It’s probably the biggest restaurant in Plymouth,” said Mary Anderson, the supervisor of the Culinary Express Department for Wayzata Schools.
It’s certainly the busiest, with hungry teenagers fueling up for the school day and beyond.
