ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Portland School District in Oregon has increased its reimbursable lunch participation by 25% in 2005 by closing down the a la carte line except for 100% juice and milk. At the same time, it boosted consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables from a salad bar. This was all part of an effort to encourage kids to choose a balanced meal rather than make a lunch of fries, a cookie and a sports drink, says Kristy Obbink, director of nutrition services.
