A new grant is aimed as changing school meals in the Jefferson County and Culver School Districts to offer more nutritious meals that students will prefer. The $25,000 grant will bring together Oregon State University researchers and the Extension Services plus local county health departments. Glenda Hyde with the OSU Extension Service says the money will be used for various things:  "We are doing a number of different things. We’re paying for some resources within the district, within one of the school districts to do some of their own recipe testing to make the changes for lower sodium and lower sugar. And then Culver School District has opted to have that review, analysis and testing done on campus with some dietetics students who are supervised by the head of the dietetics program there." Hyde says during the school year, many students eat about two-thirds of their meals at school, and they hope this program will help them develop good eating choices. She adds that they chose Jefferson County and Culver Schools because statistics show they are some of the unhealthiest areas in the state.
