The USDA released a new final rule that will set new nutrition standards for the federal child nutrition programs that serve millions of children across the country every day. The new rule fleshes out the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. It’ll increase how many fruits, vegetables, and whole grains that are in school lunches (under the program) and reduce saturated fat, trans fats and sodium, and set more appropriate calorie levels based on the age of the kids that get the lunch. You can check out some new before and after menu examples here.
