PORT CLINTON

Hamburger and fries are still popular, but Port Clinton Schools students have more options when it comes to healthy food.

Jared Fox, a sophomore at Port Clinton High School, savors two slices of pizza and a batch of fries. The 15-year-old said he likes pizza, but enjoys the school's selection of apples and carrots.

"I'm a picky eater," Fox said. "You shouldn't just eat the food that contains fat."

Junior Courtney Kast, 16, did not eat Friday's lunch of pizza and fries, but instead chose to pack her lunch.

"It's not appetizing and it's gross," Kast said. "It's not good for you."

Within the last year, Food Service Director Liz Pagniano has tried to change that image of cafeteria food to one that offers healthier options for students within Port Clinton School District. Some additions include salads, deli sandwiches, whole-grain bread and fresh vegetables and fruits.
