Analysis: Most School Lunches Miss a Nutritional Standard
Sixty percent of school lunches reviewed by state officials over the past five years did not meet at least one federal nutritional requirement, according to a California Watch analysis. The analysis found that more than 200 of about 860 school districts and charter schools reviewed did not meet three or more federal nutritional standards. Schools are required to meet certain nutritional standards -- such as limiting fats and serving enough calories -- to receive federal funding.
