School nutrition professionals in Ohio districts are implementing new federal standards for school meals, in part by serving more fruits and vegetables and switching to whole grains. Gail McClary said her district has added spinach to the salad mix; another district is serving black beans, refried beans and northern beans to meet a requirement for legumes. "The students are slowly starting to eat the vegetables," said Brent Kasler, East Knox foodservice manager.
