Improved school lunch

CMS Child Nutrition Services wants families to know that when students return to school in a few weeks, they’ll find healthy new choices in their school cafeterias that meet tough, new federal nutrition standards. Beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, school lunches will meet age-appropriate calorie limits, larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce); a wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes; fat-free or one percent milk (flavored milk must be fat-free); more whole grains; and less sodium.
