"There's always a little bit of an issue when you are trying to do what's best with kids when they already know what they want to eat," said Kathleen Smathers, food service director for the Apollo-Ridge School District.
Smathers at Apollo-Ridge said the cafeteria workers do not add salt to any recipes for food prepared on site and even took the campaign a step further.
"We don't have salt on the (cafeteria) lines any more and believe me, it was a battle with these kids, taking their salt shakers away," Smathers said.
"Six cents is not that much," said Kathleen Smathers, Apollo-Ridge food service director.
"There is legislation for us to change what they are paying to what we are reimbursed for a free lunch," Smathers said.

Kathleen Smathers, Apollo School District director of food and nutrition services, has chosen a more stable approach to bottled milk.
"I offer a shelf-stable milk for the students that comes in vanilla, chocolate, whole, 2-percent and skim, and strawberry, provided in a drink box," Smathers says."The drink boxes have SpongeBob Square Pants on them and only cost the students 10 cents more."An 8-ounce carton of milk costs an average COST, and plastic bottles cost an average of COST.
Not only was Smathers thinking about an alternative type of milk container, but also a way to provide milk for students in an event of a power outage and for field trips.
Smathers has considered another approach to making milk consumption more fun in school.
"I considered purchasing a milk vending machine," she says, but has not made that purchase.
Overall, I can't see raising the price of a school lunch," Smathers adds.
Smathers would not consider passing the additional cost on to the students.

Kathleen Smathers, the district's food services director, said it's not that the district doesn't want to promote healthy eating habits.The problem, she said, is that, aside from the money issue, the guidelines the state is suggesting are essentially too much too fast.
Smathers said the district has been taking steps to make food in its schools healthier.They have, for instance, reduced portion sizes of some foods and no longer sell anything fried.She said the district will eventually be doing all the things outlined in the state's guidelines, but it's going to take a year or two longer than the state is giving.
