Brophy has started to measure and track every freshman’s health and give them a diet plan they can follow.

Called the Brophy Healthy Weight Management Program, the endeavor requires every freshman to have health data tracked, beginning the first time they step into health class.

“We just got funding from the owner of Michael’s (Chef Michael DeMaria) to do this. He believes very strongly about this,” said Mr. Christopher White, Health/P.E. Department Chair and head of the Brophy Healthy Weight Management Program.

There’s a new aroma wafting from the Michael’s lunch line every Tuesday.

These bursts of flavor come from the new healthy meals being served in the far right lunch line.

Every week Michael’s is now serving new, healthy meals to help provide students with a nutritious alternative to their regular food choices.

Michael’s tries to balance nutrition with consumption

Chicken tenders, pizza and soda have been staples at Michael’s for the last four years, but more recently healthier alternatives have found their way onto the food provider’s menu.

The healthy options may not be as appealing to students as the standard lunchtime fare, but the options are in place. These include yogurt parfait, mixed fruit cups and garden salad.

Mr. Chris White, a health and sports medicine teacher, said he understands students may be more tempted to choose pizza over yogurt, but still would like to see more healthier alternatives offered.

State to blame for vending machine changes

Since school resumed a couple months ago, vending machines around campus have gone through some major changes.

It started with simple pieces of paper that had been taped to the machines stating that the machine was “out of order.”

While some students did not take notice of this change, other frequent purchasers began to grow a bit worried.
