For the first time in 15 years the U.S. National School Lunch Program has been modified to require more fruits and vegetables and whole grains. It is a step in the right direction! Sure, critics wish it had gone farther by eliminating french fries and pizza as a vegetable (must have at least 2 tablespoons of tomato paste to qualify). However, the new regulations are the best ever, as they lower the amount of saturated fat, transfat, sodium, and address portion control (see sample menu). The new regulations will be phased in over a three year period.
