Take Action - Ask to Improve School Nutritional Standards
Posted Jun 17 2009 6:13pm
The USDA’s school nutrition standards were developed in the 1970’s and aren’t consistent with current nutritional science. USDA doesn’t even consider candy bars, snack cakes or french fries to be junk foods. The standards don’t even address calories, saturated and trans fats or sodium.
I added my name to a petition calling for an update to these standards and I hope you will too.
