Healthier Foods Available at Kansas Schools This Year

Kansas school children may not actually see the changes, but they'll be eating healthier meals if they're having food from school cafeterias. K-State nutritionist Sandy Proctor says that's because of the federal "Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act."

Along those lines, Proctor says kindergarteners will no longer be served the same portion sizes as high school students. Not all the changes mandated by the act will go into effect this year... but by next year, schools will have to meet a series of new guidelines that affect both lunch and breakfast meals served at school.
