Meal reg changes satisfies "Hungry" kids
Dec. 13—Earlier this week, the USDA reversed some of the new school lunch rules, and the kids who made the viral "We Are Hungry" YouTube video are now happy again, says Dave Porter, superintendent of Wallace County, Kansas, schools.
Under the original rules, which went into effect at the beginning of the school year, schools couldn't serve spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread because it includes too many grains. A grilled chicken sandwich with a side order of celery sticks and a bit of peanut butter for dipping was also forbidden because it made for too many servings of protein. Now, garlic bread and peanut butter are back on the plate.
