In Willmar, students can't get enough of fruit and veggies


WILLMAR -- The food service staff at Willmar Senior High doesn't seem to have trouble getting fruits and vegetables into teenagers.

Head cook Bonnie Nordmeyer said students have numerous opportunities to eat fruits and vegetables at the school. "They eat more than I ever did," she said, partly because a larger variety of produce is available than in the past.

"We always try to encourage them to eat fresh fruit," she said.
