Learning to lunch

Schools and parents teach students to eat healthy
Students at St. Columba School eat lunch in the school gym. Durango’s private and public schools adhere to federal nutrition guidelines by incorporating whole grains, fruits and vegetables and limiting excess calories from unhealthy fats and sugar.
Arbaugh prepares his lunch line for an onslaught of hungry students. He boosts the nutritional value of his meals by sneaking healthy ingredients into dishes such as soups and stews.
From left, Rose Reiter, 8, Fred Reiter, 8, Corbin Reiter, 13, and Carter Reiter, 13, make lunch for the next school day. Their mother, Briggen Wrinkle, said the older kids always make their own lunches, but the younger ones will check the school lunch menu first.
St. Columba School kindergartner Bradin Gurule picks up his tray of hot lunch. School chef Scott Arbaugh said it sometimes takes several tries before students will like something new.
By using an assembly-line technique, the Reiter kids can pack healthy school lunches in about 20 minutes.
Carter Reiter, 13, makes pita-bread sandwiches for herself and her three siblings.
To save time in the morning, Rose Reiter, 8, packs her school lunch the night before.
