The Journal News Reports: State wants more curbs on junk food in New Rochelle schools
State auditors noted the district’s efforts to promote and serve healthy foods, but said the district needs to do more. The state suggested getting rid of high-calorie or low-nutrition vending machine items, including items that might falsely appear healthy. Some parents welcomed steps to improve students’ eating habits.
In the audit, the state asks the district to adopt a stricter health policy than the one adopted in 2006. The policy stresses healthy foods and bans the sale of candy and soda on school grounds. The district also hands out a list of recommended snacks for parents and teachers.
Hmm! Where is Dr. Weiss (Medical Director / School Physician) in all of this? Who chairs the Health and Wellness Committee?
