A school nurse is looking at federal funding for the school lunch program and childhood obesity data for the kids in the school. The nurse found that despite the highest rate of federal funding for any local school in their district and increased nutrition standards to improve the quality of food, students in the school also have the highest obesity rate. What should the school nurse do next?
1)Request additional funding.
2)Conclude that the new foods offered are not sufficient and the school should revert back to the type of meals offered in the past.
3)Interview the students and the parents to learn more about use of the lunch program and current activity levels.
4)Request that the school begin a school breakfast program as well so that students have increased access to healthy foods.
