HEALTHY SCHOOL LUNCH FOR ALL!

Remember my previous post about Congress wanting UN-healthy kids well I am ECSTATIC to announce that this morning the USDA changed and heightened the standards of school lunches!


Google

Now lunches need to be between 550-650 calories, the correct amount that each meal a child should  consume in one meal.
There will also be LESS SALT and more greens on each child's tray in lunch rooms across America!
This news makes me extremely happy because just this morning Leilani told me that she had two options for lunch yesterday:
Fries and ketchup or peanut butter and jelly... I mean... REALLY?
She choose peanut butter and jelly.

If you want to get a look at the new menu click here notice that there is MORE FOOD on the after tray then the before.

How the new changes you ask? None other than the First Lady herself! Thank you Mrs. Obama!! (click the above link to read the full article on NPR.com)
