Trump administration finalizes rollback of Obama-era school lunch regulations
By Quinn Owen | ABC News
The Trump administration has finalized a rollback of school lunch regulations championed for years by former first lady Michelle Obama.
Under the rules first announced last year, schools are now allowed to offer more flavored milk options, like chocolate. Additionally, the Obama-era efforts to limit sodium content in school lunches have been delayed or partially eliminated. The announcement Thursday doesn’t require schools to make any changes, but allows them to relax restrictions on those products.
The changes will impact 99,000 schools and institutions that feed 30 million children every year, according to the Department of Agriculture.
