Is the government counting your kid's calories?

October 17, 2012

School lunches are shrinking in public schools across the nation due to regulations enforced by the Healthy, Hungry-Free Kids Act of 2010.
The new regulations require more fruits and vegetables, but for the first time they also mandate a calorie count for lunch. (The new calorie count for K-5 is 550 to 650, the calorie count for grades 6-8 is 600 to 700, and the calorie count for grades 9-12 is 750 to 850.)
