Fruits and veggies are good for kids but they don't have the protein that keeps a person from getting hungry. They have lots of fiber and vitamins but that is not enough. They need lean beef, chicken and turkey. They need some healthy but great tasting carb rich food. Give them kettle or baked chips instead of the regular kind. Wheat pitas? Nasty, give them whole grain white. It's not the best but it has nutritional value and kids will eat it. How about mozzarella string cheese and sides w low fat dressing and condiment.

Stay away from simple carbs (breads, rice, spaghetti; if you must, whole grains are better, but are still too simple to eat in big quantities). Get your carbs from veggies and fruits.

Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.
