School Lunch Workshop
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - The Cedar Rapids Community School District is making a push for healthy eating. They held a workshop at Pierce Elementary on Tuesday night showing off the food options available to students.
Not only are they providing nutrition tips for parents to take back to their own homes, they are also looking for input on how to make school lunches better.
District officials say it's been tough getting parents to embrace new national nutritional standards put into place in the 2012-2013 school year, but they feel they are making progress.
The school district hopes to have similar workshops in the future.
