After a New Hampshire district hired a new nutrition director at the start of the year, one of Deb Riso's first decisions was to eliminate processed foods, such as chicken nuggets and pizza, from school menus. Instead, students are eating more foods made from scratch, including chicken pot pie. "She's come out with a pre-made salad," said middle-school principal John Stokel. "They make them fresh right in the cafeteria and the kids are loving them. It's really great to see kids going for the healthy food."
