Nutrition was an issue front and center during the Obama administration, now Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue is defending his decision to put changes to the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) on hold.
Those changes to the nutritional standards came during the Obama administration. Perdue spoke to thousands of members of the School Nutrition Association (SNA) Wednesday in Atlanta. The SNA lobbied Washington D.C. to revert back to the old standards.
In May, Perdue signed a proclamation which begins the process of restoring local control of guidelines on whole grains, sodium, and milk.
It would allow flavored milk with 1 percent fat back into school cafeterias.
