School Nutritionists Blast Regs: ‘Students Walking Away,’ ‘Go Off Campus for Fast Food,’ ‘Just Don’t Like the Flavor’

By MRCTV, Special for  USDR

The new lunch standards are actually driving students to eat more junk food and seek out tastier meals elsewhere, school nutritionists told a Congressional briefing:

“With a la carte choices so limited, many students go off campus for fast food, soda and sugary snacks. We have experienced a 10 percent drop in revenue and anticipate a nearly $175,000 loss this school year.”

“Students used to love the spinach and tomato wraps from our Made-Fresh-for-You bar, but they just don’t like the flavor of the new whole grain wraps. With all the changes, my paying students are walking away from the program.”

As a result, new standards are causing costs to skyrocket and program participation to plummet, the panelists said.
