Schools Spruce Up Lunch Options

New federal healthy school lunch guidelines were passed two years ago, but actually go into effect this school year.

Schools that fail to meet the new rules will not qualify for extra money from the government to cover food costs.

The guidelines focus on caloric intake of the students as well as expanding options to include fresh fruits and vegetables.

The guidelines will expand further next year.

They will focus on sodium intake and include breakfast in the plan.
