Breakfast regs won't spark student protests, directors say
Aug. 12—The start of the last school year brought big changes to students' lunch trays: smaller rolls and buns, lots more fruit and vegetables, and a dearth of desserts.
This year's changes under the continued rollout of the federal Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act will focus on breakfast. Perhaps the biggest shift will require that half of all grain products offered with breakfast are whole-grain rich, or at least 51 percent whole grain. Next year, all grains at both meals must be whole-grain rich.
But these changes aren't likely to cause near the tray-shock that last year's stirred. Kansas students even protested in a YouTube video.
