ABSTRACT
The article reports on the implementation of a program that will allow parents of elementary school children in the Solanco School District in Pennsylvania to purchase healthy classroom snacks through the foodservice department. Foodservice director David Haines started working on the idea in 2005 with the district's wellness initiative, and began accepting orders in 2007. Instead of bringing high-fat items for a student's birthday, a parent can place an order for healthy foods, which will then be delivered to the classroom.
