Academy Applauds USDA for Bagging Junk in Schools

Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released an interim final rule requiring healthier standards for all foods sold in schools. The new changes incorporate the recommendations made by the Academy.

The USDA finalized a rule that creates more stringent standards for "competitive foods" – foods sold à la carte, in school stores, snack bars and vending machines.

Starting in Fall 2014, competitive foods must be low in fat, sugar and sodium and provide kids more of the nutrients they need. Schools will also be required to serve more whole grains, low fat dairy, fruits, vegetables and lean protein.

This past spring, the Academy worked with its member experts to comment on the USDA's proposed nutrition standards for school snacks to ensure children's school environment provides access to healthy foods. The USDA's interim final rule reflects most of the recommendations from the Academy's nutrition experts.
