When the reporter was interviewing at Cathay Middle School in Bode, Colorado, I wanted to go to a vending machine to buy a drink, but there was no response when I invested money. The machine malfunctioned? A passing student kindly told: “This is set by a computer. It will be automatically locked during lunch time and you can’t buy snacks.” The vending machine on the corridor of Cathay Middle School reads a big “Diet Revolution” on the side. , There is a small slogan below: 'You are worth eating something better than junk foodThe snacks provided by the machine are also screened: juice, water, biscuit nuts; chocolate bars with no sweetness, high-salt fried potato chips, or sodas that are addictive to children. Many schools in Colorado, the United States, began to install such health vending machines at the end of 2011, and they were also on the media page because of their advanced style; but today, more than three years later, this practice has changed from a trend to a rule. In order to combat childhood obesity and the resulting health crisis, the U.S. Department of Agriculture passed a new 'smart snacks' law in July last year, requiring food in campus stores or vending machines to meet legal nutritional standards, such as not selling more than calories. 200-calorie snack. 'After eating snacks, children don't want to eat regular meals, and all efforts to improve meals are wasted.' The school kitchen staff explained. The number one war criminal among snacks is undoubtedly sweets. The well-known chef Ann Cooper said categorically that the best way to quit children's sugar addiction is not to provide them. Not only does she insist that the child eat the right food, she also pays attention to the right time and way. In many American campuses, in order to feed many schoolchildren in different steps, some students take turns to the restaurant for lunch at ten o'clock in the morning, and each person only has fifteen to twenty minutes to devour them. On the Bode campus under the auspices of Ann Cooper, students have an average of 25 to 30 minutes to eat, and she changed the rest schedule after meals to rest before meals and attend classes after meals. Domestic campus lunches are mostly eaten in the classroom seats. There is no restaurant capacity limitation problem, and they usually start on time. However, Ann Cooper believes that letting children learn to sit at the table together, feel the dining atmosphere, and improve social skills is also an important part of diet education.
