The article reports on the total school nutrition environment initiative of Miguel Villareal, director of food services for the Novato and San Rafael school districts in Marin County, California. Before it became a state mandate, he eliminated sodas and fried foods, and placed more of an emphasis on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. In keeping with his total nutrition goal, he has also turned his attention to foodservice elements that are sometimes overlooked, such as the environments and scheduling allocated to school lunches.
