USDA revamps lunch programs


The U.S. Department of Agriculture is saying goodbye to the Obama administration’s school lunch and breakfast program in a move to serve meals more appealing to students.

Starting last month, around 30 million American children on USDA federally subsidized programs saw new items with higher salt content and fewer grains on the lunch menu. U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue says the plan will “meet the needs of their students based on their real-world experience,” and help to eliminate waste.

The American Heart Association isn’t pleased with the move and says it puts kids’ health in jeopardy.
