A recent study showed that since the school lunch nutritional guidelines changed in 2012 in order to encourage students to eat more fruit, children have been choosing more fruit. Two thirds of students surveyed choose fruit, up from about half in 2012. Also, students eat most of the healthy food offered which means there is less waste. I’m not surprised. If children and young people are offered healthy food, why wouldn’t they eat it? Maybe not away, but with time they’ll develop the taste for healthy foods-we just have to keep the junk food away from them.
