Healthier Breakfast Now The Norm At District 742 Schools
ST. CLOUD -- Prepackaged processed foods have been replaced with more whole grains and fruits on the breakfast menu in the District 742 schools.
Nora Markfort is the head cook at Madison elementary, and is also on the district's Wellness committee. She says they made the switch about a month ago. Now, instead of serving pancakes and muffins, kids get food such as cold cereal and oatmeal.
Markfort says they'll continue the new menu through the end of the school year, and are open to new suggestions.
Markfort says parents are also welcome to eat breakfast with their kids. She says at Madison they have three parents who eat breakfast there daily.
