PHILIPPI, W.Va. (AP) - The state Department of Education's chief nutritional officer says Barbour County schoolchildren who got cold cheese sandwiches for lunch should have gotten more than that. But the original menu was still less than ideal.
Rick Goff says cafeterias had planned to serve a bologna and cheese sandwich, baked beans, salad, fruit and milk.
That's good enough for the county to qualify for federal reimbursement, but Goff says it's not suitable by state standards.
Instead, students got only a cheese sandwich, fruit and milk.
Goff also says it's the first time he's seen bologna on a school menu.
Lawmakers and state officials are pushing schools to serve healthier foods, but Goff says it's a work in progress.
Superintendent Joe Super apologized Tuesday for the meal. He says it won't happen again.
