    Food managers in severallocal school districts havebeen easing into the changesin nutrition requirements forschool-provided meals.

    Adjustments have includedvending machine restrictionsin 2011, to fruit-vegetable-whole grain requirements in2012, to caloric restrictions in2013, to this years sodiumcontent restrictions.

    The changes have impact-ed school lunch menus.

    Changes require a lot ofmenu engineering to offerfood items students will en-joy, Princeton City Schoolsfood service director JeanSparks said. Its an opportu-nity to try new recipes such

    salads to incorporate morefresh vegetables.

    The changes have in-creased the cost to Princetonand Winton Woods by about12-15 cents for each meal, andparticipation by students hasvaried at each district.

    Kris Tracy, district foodservice coordinator for Love-land City Schools, said thedistrict has been making thechanges slowly so studentswould not see a drastic differ-ence once the regulation wentinto place.

    Yes, products change andso do the students pallets foritems so we will continue towork diligently to servehealthy lunches that the stu-dents enjoy, Tracy said.

    Schools Child Nutrition Ser-vices Manager Jessica John-son said the same was truefor her district.

    A lot of the vendors that Iuse have been knowing thiswas coming and have beengradually decreasing thesodium in their food. Thereare some menus that I willhave to change, Johnsonsaid, adding she hopes itdoesnt affect the districtmeal sales.

    She said Sycamore had notbeen regulating the amount ofsodium before, but had al-ready started using turkeymeat instead of beef for somemenu items, which has lesssodium. About 90 percent of
