Jaclyn Mickelson's curator insight, September 22, 2013 3:52 PM

Portland is ahead of the power curve on this hot topic, and there is no doubt that revenue is not the only thing that should be of concern to the Booster Club.  Longevity and being healthy should be prioritized over money, and Federal grants attempting to fight obesity will continue to add to the overall budget of the school and compensate for what was lost by not selling unhealthy choices. 

Jonathan Griffith's comment, September 22, 2013 6:25 PM
With obesity such a concern, especially in today's adolescent population, it makes sense to implement these replacements. I believe a better option would be to still include the fan favorites while also offering an additional selection of healthy alternatives.
