School Nutrition Official Expects Less Food Waste Under New Rules

The USDA's new nutrition standards for school lunches should help curb food waste by requiring smaller portions of fruits and vegetables, says Doug Wordell, nutrition services director for Spokane Public Schools in Washington state. Registered dietitian Natalie Tauzin, a policy and systems advocate with the Spokane Regional Health District, says giving students more time to eat and letting them have recess before lunch also can reduce food waste.
