In this book the authors examine ways to improve the school nutrition safety and the school food supply. Federal nutrition programs are intended to provide children with healthful food to eat at school. During the last reauthorization of the Child Nutrition and National School Lunch Act, the authors required meals to be in line with the Department of Health and Human Services’ dietary guidelines. They looked to sound nutritional science that suggested the incorporation of healthy grains into school meal programs, and they expanded the availability of fruits and vegetables. The authors also asked schools and communities to establish local wellness policies, looking at the role of nutrition standards and physical activity, including a healthy learning environment for students.
