by Elle Moxley

August 23, 2012

What our kids are eating in their school lunches has been a topic of discussion since the School Nutrition Association was created in the 1940s.   But the guidelines are always changing.   New rules handed down this year from the United States Department of Agriculture focus less on calories and fat and more on whether all the food groups are being served.  StateImpact Indiana’s Elle Moxley reports on how Indiana schools are reformulating these meals to make them healthier and why that means a cost increase for parents.
