Fruits and veggies? Yes, please!

Kids in five central Iowa schools are enjoying a fresh addition to their school lunches this year, thanks to a program sponsored by Hy-Vee and Dole. The five schools — in Boone, Centerville, Denison, Fairfield and Shenandoah — received portable salad bars that allow them to offer students a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables at each meal. Judging from the full plates and happy smiles we saw today at United Community School in Boone, the salad bars are already a big hit.
