Salad bars added to 27 D.C. public schools

From elsewhere in The Post: D.C. schools nutrition chief Jeff Mills has revamped the cafeterias in 27 schools by adding salad bars, and has more healthful changes planned for the future.

“Over the summer, he said, he tested more than 30 local greens in search of the best roughage for the salad bars. Ingredients in the traditional cafeteria meals have been freshened up, as well. Next month, students will be offered locally grown nectarines, mushrooms, watermelons, tomatoes, arugula, squash and spinach,” writes District of DeBonis blogger Mike DeBonis.

At 10 high schools, the salad bars are part of an “Eat More Salad” campaign.
