Providing Healthy Meals at Schools

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 brought new regulations to the National School Lunch Program aimed at helping to decrease the incidence of Childhood Obesity in our country.  As a result of these changes students will be offered meals that offer:       
•    More fruits and vegetables
•    Meals with fewer calories, less fat and less sodium
•    Leaner proteins, with more meat-free alternatives
•    Right-sized portions of more satisfying foods
•    More whole-grain options

This PowerPoint describes the changes that students will see in the school lunch line.
