USDA Proposes Changes to School Lunch Guidelines
Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture proposed changes to guidelines for government-subsidized school lunches following criticisms that the standards left some children hungry. Under the revisions, USDA will suspend daily and weekly limits for grains and meat or meat alternatives, allowing schools to serve larger portions without facing a penalty.
