Jennifer Currey, the resident district manager of AVI Fresh, the food management company that oversees Marietta, Belpre and the Washington County Career Center, said this year staff worked to find compliant snack substitutes rather than just eliminating them.

"Anything that's not part of the regular lunch they get in line, like pretzels that are not usually whole grain, we had to find something else," she said.
"It's a challenge sometimes to source those products," Currey said.

"There is a lot of attention being paid to nutrition in schools," said Jennifer Currey, general manager of AVI Food Systems for Marietta City Schools.

Marietta schools have been without soda in vending machines for several years, said Currey, and the number of unhealthy options in food vending machines has decreased.
"They may have a few bags of fried chips, but we've reduced the number of candy bars to less than 10 percent of the total offerings," she said.
At all schools, fresh fruits and vegetables are offered at every meal and healthier items are constantly replacing similar, less healthy items, said Currey.
"When we wanted to eliminate trans fat, we had to search out replacement products and luckily some manufacturers stepped up to the plate," she said.
Also important, said Currey, is getting frequent feedback from the children on the healthy foods they prefer - a way to make sure that piece of fruit being offered in the lunch line every day is ending up eaten and not thrown in the trash can.
"I had someone tell me once that nutrition doesn't happen until the kids eat it," she said.
