March 8, 2012 – Earlier this month, the USDA released a revised memo addressing Questions and Answers on the Final Rule, “Nutrition Standards in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.”
This guidance addresses the final rule overall, and includes questions on general and specific aspects of the new meal requirements. USDA will revise this document periodically to issue additional Questions & Answers as they arise during the implementation of the new meal requirements.
The revised document can be found on USDA’s website, as well as on the School Nutrition Association’s Meal Pattern landing page. www.schoolnutrition.org/mealpattern
