Southern Door Students Speak Out About Lunch Changes

Many students at Southern Door High School are not happy about recent changes to their lunch program.

John Swanson, head of the district's food service, says new federal guidelines direct schools to minimize students' calorie intake by limiting servings of protein and grain and increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables.

Junior Christian Smola says one thing he doesn't like is the amount of food they're getting.

Sophomore Riley Rankin agrees.

Swanson says he understands what the students are saying but it's out of his hands.

Despite the fact that many kids don't like the new menu, Swanson says that compared to other school districts in the area the percentage of students eating lunch at Southern Door has not decreased. 

Schools nationwide are changing to a healthier menu because of First Lady Michelle Obama's campaign to fight childhood obesity, which involved taking a look at what kids were eating in schools.
