USDA Relaxes Healthier School Lunch Guidelines

Reuters (1/3, Cooney, Krasny) reports that USDA has announced that it is making permanent a decision late last year to relax new school lunch calorie and portion restrictions, quoting USDA Undersecretary Kevin Concannon saying, “Earlier this school year, USDA made a commitment to school nutrition professionals that we would make the meat and grain flexibility permanent and provide needed stability for long-term planning. We have delivered on that promise.”
