NYC started offering healthier foods which have less calories then the old lunch menu . Now the government is saying the new menu is not meeting federal standards for minimum caloric intake per day, while the schools are saying are just being picky with the new healthy menu choices.\ \ We have a huge obesity problem in this country, I hope the government monitors but does not strip funding from NYC Schools until they measure if the new healthier menu really helps combat the fattening of our kids without leaving some low income kids starving throughout the day. Maybe the federal mandate for calories is to high?\ \ Wonder if anyone is measuring if sales as school vending machines are going up with this new menu in place?
