'Lettuce' provide city students a healthy meal

May 05, 2012

How refreshing to read about the popularity of salad bars ("Salad bars take root," May 1) and enjoy the pictures of young women filling their school lunch plates with colorful fresh vegetables!

What a treat that certain schools are providing and promoting this choice in the food desert areas where wholesome and low-calorie fresh foods have generally not been available.

I'd look forward to a follow-up a year from now about the health and weight of these girls.
