School nutrition professionals in an Iowa school district say they are working to encourage students to eat new, healthier meal options. For some students, however, the adjustment has been slow, and they have resisted eating some foods, such as beans. "For future menus, I'm trying to incorporate what the students like because if we have more of what the students want, they will eat more of it," said district foodservice director Patty McPherson. "We are working with the kids to get what they want out there."
