Description
 
The National School Lunch Program served more than 31 million children in FY 2012, in part through $11.6 billion in federal supports. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 required USDA to update nutrition standards for lunches. The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) issued new requirements for lunch components -- fruits, vegetables, grains, meats, and milk -- and for calories, sodium, and fats in meals. USDA oversees state administration of the program, and individual states oversee local school food authorities (SFAs), which provide the program in schools. The changes were generally required to be implemented in school year 2012-2013. This report assessed (1) lunch participation trends; (2) challenges SFAs faced implementing the changes, if any; and (3) USDA's assistance with and oversight of the changes. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
