More vegetables, less sugar: USDA eyes healthier meals for child, adult day care program
from Winnipeg Free Press
As teachers lament seeing toddlers too large to fit in playground swings, a federal program that feeds millions of low-income children may be overhauled for the first time in almost 50 years, aiming to make the meals at day cares healthier and reduce obesity. About 3.8 million young children are fed daily through the Child and Adult Care Food Program, which primarily reimburses daycare providers, and also provides food for children in emergency shelters and pays for after-school meals or snacks in areas where at least half the students qualify for free- or reduced-price lunches.
