Being Thirteen: Inside The Secret World of Teens



The Salad Bar is Here!!!

While there is a growing awareness of the health and education benefits that salad bars provide to kids, many school districts are unable to afford the basic equipment needed to adopt this strategy. So I am excited to inform you that through a grant provided by Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools the Rondout Valley Junior High/Intermediate School has received a salad bar that we will be available to students beginning March 1st !

Why salad bars? Supporting research shows that incorporating salad bars into school lunches increases children’s consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. When offered healthy food choices, children respond by trying new items, incorporate greater variety into their diets, and increase their daily intake of fruits and vegetables. Through these early, positive experiences, students are better prepared for a lifetime of healthy eating.

In support of these benefits, the White House Task Force on Child Obesity endorses the use of salad bars in schools and upgrading cafeteria equipment in order to provide healthy meals for kids. Similarly, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academics determined that America’s schools should increase fruits and vegetables at lunch to two servings in order to meet children’s basic health requirements. Significant supporting research from both the USDA and public groups has demonstrated that school children significantly increase their consumption of healthy fruits and vegetables when given a variety of choices via a school salad bar.

The station is available to all and will offer an increased selection of fresh fruits and vegetables for students taking a complete lunch as well as students wishing to purchase veggies off the station al a carte.
