Biden Administration Toughens School Nutrition Standards

(Reuters) – The Biden administration on Wednesday announced new rules limiting the sugar and sodium content of meals served to millions of children at U.S. public schools.

The standards unveiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture are part of President Joe Biden’s broader effort to combat diet-related disease such as childhood obesity.

“We all share the goal of helping children reach their full potential,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in announcing the new standards.
