Maplewood school lunch lady’s fruit and vegetable displays go viral

Good News Notes:

“The salad bar at John Glenn Middle School comes with instructions.

A sign in the Maplewood school’s cafeteria explains that the salad bar as a meal choice includes fruit, vegetables, grains/pasta, meat or meat alternatives and milk — emphasizing in bold type that students ‘Must take 3 of the 5 offerings including 1/2 cup fruit/vegetables.’

Kids across America have been known to grumble at fruit and vegetable mandates, whether they are issued by the schools, the feds or Mom and Dad — but thanks to Connie Sarne, assistant manager of the school kitchen, students at this middle school are learning that fruits and vegetables can actually be fun as well as delicious.”
