This year as kids go back to school, school food will be getting even healthier. Smart Snacks went into effect July 1st, updating the national nutrition standards for vending, school stores, fundraisers, and a la carte in school cafeterias.  Also, school lunches and breakfasts continue to get healthier, with stronger standards this fall for whole grains, sodium, and fruit. Talk about GREAT news!

Join @MomsRising and @CSPI for this week's #FoodFri tweetchat to learn more about the changes and how it will benefit all schoolchildren!

CSPI | MomsRising.org


 

Since 1971, CSPI has been a strong advocate for nutrition and health, food safety, alcohol policy, and sound science.

Founded by executive director Michael Jacobson, Ph.D. and two other scientists, CSPI carved out a niche as the organized voice of the American public on nutrition, food safety, health and other issues during a boom of consumer and environmental protection awareness in the early 1970s. CSPI has long sought to educate the public, advocate government policies that are consistent with scientific evidence on health and environmental issues, and counter industry’s powerful influence on public opinion and public policies.

Connect with CSPI on their website, Twitter and Facebook.
