Report could turn tables on school lunches
Placeholder Image
A new report just might change what ends up on your child's lunch tray. As a dietitian, I'm thrilled that the Institute of Medicine just issued an extensive report recommending that schools load lunch lines with a variety of fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains.Right now, most lunch lines are full of processed meats and cheese products, and more than 80 percent of schools serve too much high-fat food to comply with federal guidelines. But this new report really could turn the tables in cafeterias.
