Date:10/6/2010

t, director of food service for Lincoln Parish Schools. "Baked desserts have been replaced with canned or fresh fruit, students are getting a green salad with their lunch plate, and higher fat items have been replaced with lower fat options."

"We want students to realize that food can taste good without being heavily loaded with grease and salt."

Murimi said the expected outcome of this project is to develop healthy student-approved menus and identify the behavior economic strategies most successful in helping students throughout Lincoln Parish make the best and healthiest food choices in their school cafeterias. The most successful menus and appropriate strategies will be recommended for implementation in all Lincoln Parish Schools.
