Survey of snacks in Kentucky schools Over the past 25 years, the preva- lence of overweight and obesity in the American population has in- creatt at an alarming rate. Sixty- one ptment of American Adults are overweight or obese. Currently 300,000 Americans die annually from causes related to excess body weight. Retired Surgeon General David Satcher predicted the extra pounds Americans are carrying could surpass tobacco as the leading cause of preventable death. Increased body weight among children and adolescents is of partic- ular concern. The number of over- weight children has almost doubled in the last two decades, increasing from seven percent in 1980 to 13 percent in 1999. The number of over- weight teens has nearly tripled over the same time period, increasing from five percent to thirteen percent. Sixty-six percent of the schools responding reported student access to vending machines. Ninety-seven percent of high schools, 89 percent of middle schools and 45 percent of elementary schools have vending machines available for student use. These figures are comparable for elementary and high school students nationally, but Kentucky middle school students have greater access to vending machines than their coun- terparts across the U. S. Nationally, 44 percent of elementary schools have student vending machines, 74 percent of middle and 98 percent of high schools. Though Kentucky regulations require schools to make vending machines inaccessible to students until one-half hour after lunch is served, a variety of practices are currently in use. Nearly 12 percent of responding schools made vend- ing machines available to students before school in the morning. Six percent of schools allowed student access t.o vending machines through- out the day and six percent allowed access during the lunch period. Fif- ty-nine percent provided after school access and 54 percent allowed ac- cess after lunch. Eighty-four percent of the food sold in vending machines in Ken- tucky schools is "junk food"; soft drinks, candy, fried foods, and past- ries. Regular soda, candy and fried snacks are the three most common snacks in vending slots. School stores, canteens and snack bars are another source of snacks for Kentucky students. Thirty-six percent of schools have some type of school store. Stores are most com- mon in elementary schools (42 per- cent). Thirty percent of middle and high schools have these stores. Over one-third of school stores are open for student business during lunch. Over sixty percent of schools stocked THE BATH COUNTY NEWS-OUTLOOK Owingsviile, Ky.--Week of February 28 - March 7, 2002 Best Appearance -- Zachary Jones with his experiment - "Water Analysis". fried snacks and candy. Fifty-eight percent carry water and 15 percent offer fruit. Eighty-one percent of all schools used food as a reward for behaviors, attendance or academic achieve- ment. Sixty-four percent of food rewards in schools are candy, 46 percent are soft drinks, and 83 per- cent are pizza. Many schools also use non-food rewards such as a 'no homework pass', a special task or lunch with a teacher. Children spend a lot of time in schools and are afforded a great deal of freedom in selecting snack foods. Schools can and should provide an environment that exemplifies a healthy relationship with food, said Dr. Janet Tietyen, Kentucky Exten- sion Food and According to ease Control timated 83 percent c percent of boys in fewer than the ed number of servin veg, school students ence food cal activity seem to sponsible for weight in children. gests that programs viduals, families, schools are needed trend.
