I am so glad I was born when I was.
From the article:
"It’s been a while since French fries have dared to make a public appearance in a Rhode Island school cafeteria. And the same holds true for fried fish sticks, potato puffs, ice cream cups, brownies and other fatty, sugary foods. This year, the list of extinct school lunch foods will get a lot longer due to more stringent nutrition requirements instituted by the state Department of Education.
“I’m thrilled with these,” Education Commissioner Deborah A. Gist says of the requirements approved by the Board of Regents in February. “It’s going to be a work in progress and there will be an adjustment period, but what won’t change is our commitment to better nutrition for our students. Also to think that Rhode Island is leading the country in this area is exciting.”
