Beyond a Full Belly: Revolutionizing School Lunches (and Getting Kids to Like It)

Setup

The Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, passed in 2010, was the first major nutrition update to school meals in decades. Public school lunches now offer more vegetables, less sodium, less sugar, and fewer empty calories—a major victory for nutrition advocates in the battle against childhood obesity. But kids miss the empty calorie foods and many schools are finding the programs less popular and more costly. Sam Kass, former White House Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy, and Chef Ann Cooper, the Renegade Lunch Lady, give a state of the union on school lunches and talk about the marketing and education initiatives underway to get young people excited about healthier choices in the cafeteria.
