    Monday Is The Last Day To Comment On WV School Nutrition Proposals


    The upcoming school year is just days away, and as we get closer to that date, we have an important reminder for all parents whose children are used to eating school lunch.

    Tomorrow afternoon is the last official time where you can make a comment on the West Virginia Board of Education’s proposal to remove the state’s current nutrition standards for school meals and snacks, and replace them with the national requirements.

    According to the Charleston Gazette, the school board’s proposed changes would allow students to only eat non-healthy foods during classroom celebrations, and would only allow sodas and sugary drinks for high schoolers.

    The public has until 4 p.m. on Monday to read and comment on these changes on their website.
