Cookies, candy, and sweets are out. Fruits, vegetables and whole grains are in at Warren County Schools.
School districts across the nation have had to change lunch menu's to become healthier after the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act was signed in 2010.
But Warren County Public Schools have been making changes far before the new bill.
"We have worked with the Healthier US challenge in the past and so the guidelines with that mirror these new guidelines that we are required to work with," says Gina Howard, Director of Food Service and Nutrition at Warren County Public Schools.
New guidelines this year include more grains and proteins in sandwich breads. The new rules have come with an added cost.
"Of course whole grains are more expensive and the more fresh fruits and vegetables that you offer on your menu that can add to your food costs," says Howard.
More fruits and vegetables, and less cookies and snacks hasn't seemed to phase kids at Briarwood Elementary.
"We had a cookie last week on the menu and it was made smaller. We thought there might be comments from the children about the cookies being smaller but we didn't have one child say anything about the size of our cookies," says Linda Padgett, Food Service Manager at Briarwood Elementary.
In fact, kids are asking for more changes. Two fifth graders started a petition for the school to add a salad bar.
"I just really like salad a lot and I sometimes don't like to eat at school like their meals a lot sometimes and I just wanted a salad bar," says Allison and Chapel.
The district has taken the idea into consideration and say a salad bar will be added in the coming weeks.
