California schools serve 810 million meals a year, each one a chance to keep kids healthy and reduce the risk of serious diseases like childhood obesity, diabetes and hypertension. Healthier meals and snacks are coming to California schools, thanks to new standards requiring more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and less salt and fat.
What We’re Doing
- Supporting school food service directors to make sure they have the training and equipment they need to provide healthy and appealing school meals.
- Promoting school gardens as a way to teach kids about healthy foods and healthy eating.
