THOMAS COUNTY, Ga. — A push to put high school students' health first.

Thomas County Central High School is serving up new menu options for breakfast and lunch.

The Director of Nutrition for the county says the goal is to get more students to eat breakfast and lunch.

The CDC says 1 out of 5 youth in the U.S. is obese. With new options such as a salad bar and a new smoothie station, county leaders are hoping that students will eat healthier and be healthier.

Most of the students we talked to say they are in love with the school's new food choices.
