ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the initiatives launched by Turlock Unified School District food service director Scott Soiseth aimed to encourage children to buy lunch at school. To make the sale for his rebranded nutrition program called RealFresh, Soiseth has expanded the menu to include items that children bring from home. The service is also in the process of setting up smoothie bars, which are not necessarily things kids bring from home, but something they would go get after school.
