School Lunches

By Jessica L. Tonn — February 14, 2006 1 min read

An abstract of “Factors Associated with the Offering and Sale of Competitive Foods and School Lunch Participation” is available from the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.

School lunches scheduled well before noon, vending machines, and parents who deliver food to their children at school deter high school students from eating the more nutritional meals that schools provide, a study concludes.

The study, published in the February issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, is based on a survey of 228 food-service directors in high schools across Pennsylvania. The report suggests that the findings may be useful to schools that are establishing wellness policies for their schools as mandated by the Child Nutrition and Women, Infants, and Children Reauthorization Act of 2004.
