The Economic Impact of National School Nutrition Standards on Schools and the Beverage Industry

ShareThis

The United States Department of Agriculture recently proposed national school nutrition standards for school vending machines, a la carte in cafeterias, school stores, and other foods sold outside of school meals (referred to as competitive foods). If USDA follows the recommendations of the Center for Science in the Public Interest and other health experts, nutritionally sound beverage standards in the final regulations should have little to no financial impact on schools or the beverage industry.
