Release of New Nutrition Standards for School Meals

This past week,  First Lady Michelle Obama and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack announced new and improved nutrition standards for school lunches, marking the first major changes in 15 years. In accordance with last year’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, “The new standards make the same kinds of changes that many parents are already encouraging at home, including ensuring kids are offered fruits and vegetables every day of the week, substantially increasing offerings of whole grain-rich foods, offering only fat-free or low-fat milk varieties and making sure kids are getting proper portion sizes.”
