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

intendent Dr. Jim Hinson said his schools are adopting NuVal as a response to the dire statistics of the country's declining health.

"The trends you hear about, they're alarming," he said. "We're noticing it ourselves each year in our own schools -- it's clear that students need support in learning to eat healthier.

"By using the NuVal scores, we're hoping that students will get a better idea about what they're putting into their bodies, and they'll have the nutritional knowledge necessary to help them live a long and healthy life," he said. "We want to do everything we can to improve their understanding of the foods they eat and how it affects them."

"I commend and admire Dr. Hinson for including the health of his students as a priority, along with their academic development.  Ultimately, each supports the other, and hopefully every superintendent will someday understand that," said Dr. Katz.

NuVal Scores are based on a sophisticated algorithm that takes more than 30 different nutrients and nutrition factors into account when developing a Score. The system was created by Dr. Katz and a team of a dozen health and nutrition experts over a two-year period.   The system, which was developed independently of food industry interests, was recently endorsed by the American College of Preventive Medicine.

NuVal Scores will be presented in a trademarked blue double-hexagon design and will be found on display for all foods served at the schools, from School vending machine products to cafeteria a la cart items.

"Sixty percent of our kids stay after school," Hinson said. "It's our responsibility to not only provide healthy snacks, but to give them nutritional guidance about those snacks as well."

Dr. Katz said he hopes this will be the first of many school systems to adopt NuVal.

"With all the concern over
