why salad bars
Why Salad Bars?

1. When a variety of fruits and vegetables choices are offered in a school fruit and vegetable salad bar, students:

- Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables

- Try new items and incorporate greater variety into their diets

- Learn to make decisions that carry over outside of school, providing a platform for a lifetime of healthy snack and meal choices

2. White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity has endorsed using salad bars and upgrading cafeteria equipment to provide healthier foods to kids

3. The Institutes of Medicine concluded that schools need to add as many as two servings of fruits and vegetables daily to meals in order to meet children\'s basic health requirements
