On January 25, 2012, First Lady Michelle Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack unveiled new requirements for nutritional standards in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs across the nation. The official press release outlines the improvements to school lunch programs that are expected to enhance the health of children at school as well as lessen the childhood obesity trend. Under the new rules, schools will be required to double the servings of vegetables and fruits per meal.
In an effort to support the nutritional standards for school meals and our teachers and students, this infographic shows statistics sharing lifestyle, consumption, and media activity relating to children. It takes a community to raise a child and we know how important teachers are to the growth and development of our students! We encourage you to help as we spread this important message!
