Interest in the school lunch program and nutrition education has been growing throughout the Nation over a period of years, especially since the enactment of the National School Lunch Act in 1945. School administrators, teachers, members of school boards, school lunch managers, parents, and others are asking the Office of Education pertinent questions about various phases of these programs. Some of them are working in schools that are considering, for the first time, the setting up of a school lunch program, whereas others are desirous of improving their present procedures. The Interdivisional Committee on Nutrition Education and School Lunch of the Office of Education believed that a compact publication, answering those pertinent questions about school lunch and nutrition education, which are most frequently asked, would be helpful to the many people concerned. Such a publication would highlight the more detailed statements on these subjects. This publication answers briefly 21 questions which deal with the relation of the school lunch to nutrition education, health aspects of the school lunch, and certain administrative and financial matters. It is hoped that this publication will serve as a helpful guide to those concerned with school lunch programs and nutrition education as they affect children and youth in the United States.
