The Kids’ Safe and Healthful Foods Project, a collaboration between The Pew Charitable Trusts and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has released more poll results that show wide support for healthy school food policies.

A report last month found overwhelming support for healthy school food policies throughout Kansas, and this new poll found that parents and voters in Pennsylvania feel similar.

The survey found that 98 percent of parents and 96 percent of voters think serving nutritious foods in schools is important to “ensure that children are prepared to learn and do their best.”

Additionally, about three-quarters of parents and voters in Pennsylvania say that meals would be substantially better if schools offered a greater variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Latino students make up about 8.4 percent of students in Pennsylvania’s public schools.
