School Cafeteria Food Healthier Than Packed Lunches

Written by Pat Papers | Wednesday, 6 August 2014 7:16 AM

The San Francisco Chronicle reports on a new Tufts University survey that found school cafeteria lunches are often much healthier than lunches packed at home. Researchers found nearly a quarter of packed lunches lacked what would be considered an entree - such as a sandwich or leftovers. School lunches, which are held to federal standards, must provide specific amounts of milk, fruits, vegetables, grains and protein.
