US plan aims to make school meals more healthful

from The San Francisco Chronicle

The hope is that the 32 million children who participate daily in school meal programs will have more healthful foods to chew on. The proposed rule, which would raise reimbursements to schools by 6 cents a meal, was released, and it is being applauded by nutrition and children's outreach groups across the country. more
