ABSTRACT
The article reports on a campaign aimed at drawing Saint Paul, Minnesota public schools' 40,000 students away from the à la carte lines and enticing them to choose more center-of-the-plate items. The program has been spearheaded by Jean Ronnei, director of nutrition and commercial services. As students choosing the rice bowl entree come through the line, they indicate to the server the cold toppings they want, such as chopped cilantro and chopped scallions from the Choice Bar.
