YULEE, Fla. -- A new school year means a newer, healthier menu at one area high school.

It's a program that's been in the works for a while at Yulee High School. The new menu is a step toward what's called a clean label menu. that's means no additives or preservatives in as many of the items on the line as possible.

Some of this year's changes include salad bars at each line, a different way of frying foods and even healthier milk. Students and the district's food director said this is a big step in the right direction.

"We want all of our children to eat healthy -- we want them to be healthy and strong so they can succeed in school," said Nassau County Schools Food Service Director Allyn Graves.

Another plus: All of the fresh produce the kids eat is grown locally, within a 150 mile radius of the district.
