Kansas Schools Look at Effects of Healthy Snack Rule

Posted: Updated:

In Kansas educators take a look at the effects of a new federal school healthy snack rule.

On the agenda for the Kansas State Board of Education is a presentation about standards announced this summer by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Starting in July 2014 the USDA will require that all food sold in schools participating in the National School Lunch Program meets healthy snack requirements.

The USDA has said it's trying to fight childhood obesity and related health problems. However, their standards on school lunches have been criticized as being too strict and resulting in meals that kids won't eat.
