Thirty-two schools in a Texas district have earned HealthierUS School status from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The recognition follows an effort to serve more fruits and vegetables and promote fitness and nutrition in schools. "When they first started changing the menu, if you will, a few years ago, we were worried that the kids wouldn't be eating it, but they love it," said Kim Broadway, elementary-school principal. "If it tastes good, they will eat it."
