New Brunswick Medical Society Launching "Make Menus Matter."

The New Brunswick Medical Society is asking parents and teachers to take a second look at school menus. 

The group is launching "Make Menus Matter", a campaign to raise awareness about eating healthy at school. 

CEO Anthony Knight tells CHSJ News, when it comes to healthy school menus, there's still room for improvement. He says, unhealthy options are still available on school menus.

"There's all different forms of burgers, whether they're chicken, fish or hamburgers, lot of pizza and some variations of fried foods. We want to encourage more whole grain products, more fruits and vegetables, and more lean meat," he says.

Parents are being asked to submit their child's school menu to the Medical Society, for a chance to with a healthy lunch prepared by doctors and dietitians.
