SNMCS Webinar Series - Meeting the Updated Nutrition Standards and the Nutritional Quality of School Lunches
The findings described in this webinar are based on two analyses. One that estimated the percentage of daily and weekly lunch menus that met the updated nutrition standards, and another that examined the nutritional quality of the lunches using the Healthy Eating Index-2010.
This webinar focuses on findings related to school meal program operations, including: SFAs’ views on the updated nutrition standards and challenges faced in implementing them; schools’ participation in child nutrition programs; average student participation rates; locations where breakfast is offered; prices charged for paid meals, which are meals purchased by students who are not certified to receive meals free or at a reduced price; and the length of meal periods.
