The Plum School District in the Pittsburgh area will start an "Afterschool Fuel" program this fall, selling students inexpensive healthy snacks, such as yogurt, fruits and vegetables, to give them energy for sports or other activities. Registered dietitian Maryann Lazzaro, the district's food supervisor, said the program will offer drinks with electrolytes and minerals, and foods with carbohydrates, fiber, protein, calcium and vitamins.
