New Idaho Nutrition Standards. Nourishing News. Volume 3, Issue 6
Idaho State Department of Education
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has contracted with the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to examine ways to implement the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs) into the school meals programs. In the meantime, USDA has requested that state agencies begin proactively implementing the applicable recommendations for the 2005 DGAs into Child Nutrition Programs. In response to the USDA's request, the Idaho Child Nutrition Programs has formed a panel to develop new Nutrition Standards for Idaho Child Nutrition Programs. The new standards can be found in poster format in this issue of "Nourishing News." Articles included in this issue are: (1) Keeping Sugar in Check (Anna Mae Florence); (2) How Fried Is It? (Ed Herrera); (3) Condiments: How Much Is Too Much? (Colleen Fillmore); (5) It All Adds Up: Don't Forget the A La Carte Items (Lynda Westphal); (5) Fruit & Juice Differences in the National School Lunch Program (Mary Jo Marshall); (6) Commodities Are Getting Leaner Too; and (7) Whole Grains Pilot Program (Ed Herrera).
