No mystery meat here!
The Netcong Elementary School in Netcong, N.J., has been named the winner of the Eat Right, Move More program, a program run jointly between the state and the New York Jets pro football team.
As reported in the Newark Star-Ledger, winning schools were selected based on the how well the campus met the criteria established by the Healthier U.S. School Challenge Program.
Lunch and breakfast menus were also reviewed and the school had to demonstrate efforts to improve nutrition and physical activity among their students. Meals featuring fresh fruits and veggies along with pizzas made with whole-grain flour put Netcong Elementary at the top of the list.
For its efforts, the school will receive a $5,000 kitchen makeover and a visit on Tuesday by Jets offensive tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson and New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas Fisher.
The school will also be recognized during today’s Jets game against the Miami Dolphins at the New Meadowlands Stadium.
