ABSTRACT
The article deals with the changes made in the food service department of the Montrose Country School District in Colorado under the guidance of Nutrition Service Director Kathy DelTonto to ensure that the meals students received are nutritious. Del Tonto stated that one of the goals of the district is to use only 10% of total foods that are processed. One of the changes is reduction in the amount of products that contain high-fructose corn syrup. Another change is making its own pizza inhouse instead of purchasing a highly processed frozen pizza.
