New school lunch rules need work

Email

For the first time in years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture last week reworked nutrition rules for school meals. The effort was billed as a step in the fight against childhood obesity, and part of Michelle Obama’s pet Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. New rules will limit the number of calories served and require schools to offer more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, among other changes.

All this sounds fantastic, but the details do not bear up under scrutiny.
