The Diets Of Students In School District 6 Aren't Good Enough

Students in School District 6 are not eating enough fruits and vegetables......That, according to a wellness survey that was presented to the District Education Council. 

Only 40 per cent or so of students in District 6 are eating the daily recommended amounts. That bothers acting Superintendent Gary Hall because he tells CHSJ News the better you eat, the better you'll learn and then there's a correlation between students who smoke having higher rates of dropping out and lower levels of mental fitness.

Hall says the school district will use the information in formulating future strategies.
