USDA Takes Steps Forward To Create A Healthier Next Generation

Posted on Jun 06, 2014 by Maggie LaBarbera

What is the recipe that schools need to help create a healthier next generation:

  • a government willing to invest in healthier school lunch programs and nutrition education
  • healthier foods served in the school across America
  • making sure children have a healthy breakfast each morning so their brains are charged and ready to learn
  • providing access to healthier snack choices

The USDA is happy to report that after investing 200 million dollars to schools and 160 million dollars to improving kitchen facilities, 91% of schools now report they are meeting the new nutrition standards.  

The USDA is also happy to share the according to their data, children are now eating:

  • 16% more veggies at lunch
  • 23% more fruit at lunch

When we all work together, we can make a difference.
