Many kids are eating healthier meals at school

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 20, 2014

Thanks to new nutritional guidelines, more students are eating more fruits and vegetables in their school lunch according to the USDA.

New guidelines were put into place by the USDA in 2012.

Schools that are enrolled in the program serve skim or low-fat milk and have added more whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

However, the USDA says a million fewer students nationwide are eating federal school lunches.
