According to the United States Department of Agriculture, new standards, defined as the USDA Interim Final Rule Nutrition Standards or “Smart Snacks in Schools” guidelines, have been implemented to make food sold at school healthier.

These regulations apply to food sold in the cafeteria, school stores, snack bars, vending machines and as a part of fundraising efforts, according to District 203′s Sodexo general manager, Barbara Brown.

“The impact on us is the most obvious because of lunch time and what we serve at breakfast,” Brown said. “The regulation really does apply to any food being sold, not just what Sodexo is selling.”

By Staff Writer KC McQuaid

A new strain of a common virus could be leading many teens and children to serious respiratory problems, said Melaney Arnold, Illinois Department of Public Health media representative.

This new strain of enterovirus, called EV-D68, has the appearance of a common cold. It can cause symptoms that include sneezing, coughing, running nose and fever. Unlike the common cold, EV-D68 has a much greater impact on one’s respiratory system, Arnold said.

“Enteroviruses are fairly common. However, there are more than 100 strains of them,” Arnold said. “This current strain that we’re seeing, EV-D68, is one of the less common strains so we don’t know exactly how long the duration of illness could be and, in some cases, the severity of it.” … Continue Reading
