School lunches recently got their biggest update in 15 years thanks to new guidelines from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The rules now set limits on calories and salt. They phase in whole grains and require at least one vegetable or fruit per meal.
Families in many Georgia schools will pay a bit more for school lunches beginning next school year. New federal regulations are forcing school districts across the state to raise school lunch prices by between a nickel and a quarter.
