New Richmond schools focus on healthy lunches
President Barack Obama thinks school lunches need to be healthier - and he's not alone.
According to government numbers, 32 percent of the 32 million kids who eat lunch at school are overweight or obese. That statistic has many local school districts, including New Richmond, reworking school lunches.
The proposed changes to school meal standards require more fruit, vegetables, whole grains and a switch to fat-free and low-fat (1 percent) milk.
