Are School Lunches Healthy?

Are school lunches improving or getting worse?

The nutrition action group, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, graded 22 of the country's largest school lunch programs and they found they are getting healthier.

Around 96 percent of schools now offer fresh fruit and tossed salads on a regular basis. The problem is getting our kids to eat it.

So, the nutrition experts suggest we encourage kids to dip fruits and veggies into a low fat dressing or yogurt at home so they'll be more likely to choose that option at school.
