School food has been commanding headlines for well over a month, as controversy rages over costs and complications associated with implementation of stricter new nutrition standards. If you’re confused over who’s on what side of this debate, and what it's really all about, you’re not alone. It's gotten so political. Today we're stepping away from all of that to simply look at what the standards are designed to do for kids, and whether or not they've been able to do it. We'll discuss three studies that suggest students--at-risk students especially--are eating more fruits and vegetables and even losing weight. This program was brought to you by Bonnie Plants.
