SANTA FE — New Mexico’s school food standards already meet new recommendations made to reauthorize the Child Nutrition Act introduced in the United States Senate last week.
U. S. Senators Blanche Lincoln and Tom Harkin introduced four key elements that would be added to the Act for national school nutrition standards inserted into the federal Child Nutrition Act. These elements include:
• Improving the nutritional quality of school meals to help children meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
• Raising the federal reimbursement rates for school meals to better ensure that all children receive a nutritious meal.
• Updating standards for foods sold outside the school meal to be healthful and meet the best available nutrition science.
• Providing funds to support nutrition education and promotion programs that help children learn how to make healthy choices.
