Over 95% of schools across the country now meet the new, healthier school nutrition standards of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Though challenges remain, many schools are reporting that students are eating more fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods in the cafeteria. They are also trying new foods, learning about good nutrition and how our food is grown, and taking that knowledge home.

On July 1, Gov. Scott Walker signed Assembly Bill 37 into law as 2015 WI Act 46.
