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.
