New Rules for School Lunches- Way to Go USDA.

Submitted by

New rules will go in effect for school lunches. Way to Go USDA.

Watch this CNN video and tell me what you think.  Do you think this is a step in the right direction towards eliminating or decreasing childhood obesity?

As a Mom of 3, I’m thrilled to see that the USDA is making an effort to make our school lunches healthier.  My oldest is in first grade and we pack her lunch every morning.  She just doesn’t eat chicken nuggets or hoagies and I actually enjoy packing healthy lunches for her.

It’s great to see that kids Nutrition is finally being made a priority in schools.  I’m sure there will be a time when all three of my kids are in school that I’ll want to send them to school with a few dollars in their backpacks to buy lunch.  And hopefully I’ll be able to count on a Nutritious lunch as so many families in this country do.

With the new mandates, schools will now have to reduce sodium, saturated fat and trans fats and also offer more whole grains as well as fat-free or low-fat milk varieties.  The goal is to make school lunch plates look more like the new My Plate recommendations.

Here is a fabulous book I’d like to recommend on how to get your kids to eat healthy foods.  It’s called: How to Get Your Kid to Eat: But Not Too Much New Rules for School Lunches  Way to Go USDA.
