Missouri School District to Grade its Own Food Options
Date:2/1/2010

BRAINTREE, Mass., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Eating right is about to become much easier for the students in the Independence School District, located in Independence, Missouri. Starting this fall, all the district's high and middle schools will "grade" all foods offered in their cafeterias and vending machines using the NuVal Nutritional Scoring System, which ranks all foods on a scale of 1 to 100. Under the NuVal scale, the higher a food's score, the more nutritious that food is overall. Typically, NuVal scores are provided on supermarket shelves; this marks the first time they will be used in schools.

"By bringing NuVal to schools in an effort to improve the students' diets and health, we're addressing one of the nation's top public health priorities," said Dr. David Katz, one of the creators of the NuVal system and director of the Yale Prevention Research Center. "NuVal is intended to make everyone a nutrition expert, but without the heavy lifting.  Students in the Independence schools will know at a glance which choices are more nutritious.  We are hoping they will use that knowledge to make the best possible choices, and improve their health. "

Located East of Kansas City, the Independence School District contains four middle schools and four high schools, and more than 7,000 students attend classes there each day. Super
