Pennsylvania: Pittsburgh School System Adding Healthier Choices in Advance of Federal Mandate

The U.S. Department of Agriculture passed the Smart Snacks in School interim standard, which mandates healthier snack options for students which takes effect next year. However, many students are already buying healthier snacks and beverages in cafeterias, vending machines and snack bars in the Pittsburg area. Pittsburg schools are replacing selections high in fat, salt and sugar with healthier choices on school lunch trays and in vending machines, explaining that it's helpful to do so now and will not be a big shock to students when the federal requirements are enacted. Pittsburgh Public Schools serve approximately 19,000 lunches and 11,000 breakfasts each school day. more
