Lunch workers study how to get kids to eat healthy

DENVER (AP) — There will be more whole grains on school lunch menus this year, along with a wider selection of fruits and vegetables and other healthy options. The challenge is getting children to eat them.

At a School Nutrition Association conference in Denver this summer, food workers heard tips about how to get children to make healthy food choices in the cafeteria.

The problem is a serious one for the nation’s lunch-line managers, who are implementing the biggest update to federal school-food guidelines in 15 years.

New Department of Agriculture guidelines set calorie and sodium limits for school meals. Schools must offer dark green vegetables, orange or red vegetables and legumes at least once a week. Flavored milk must be nonfat, and there’s a ban on artificial, artery-clogging trans fats.

Augusta National adds first two female members

NEW YORK (AP) — For the first time in its 80-year history, Augusta National Golf Club has female members.

The home of the Masters has invited former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first women in green jackets when the club opens for a new season in October.

Both women have accepted. The invitations end a 10-year controversy that began when former club chairman Hootie Johnson said the club would not be pressured “at the point of a bayonet” to change its all-male membership.

Augusta National chairman Billy Payne described Monday’s announcement as a “joyous occasion” as he took the rare step of confirming its latest two members. He says it is a “significant and positive time” at the club. Augusta typically does not discuss membership.
