Co-Sponsorship Activity for: S. 1146: Healthy School Meals Flexibility Act

Bill Info: This bill would relax sodium and whole grain requirements for the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. Whole grain standards would be reduced to require that half of all grains served be “whole grain-rich”, as opposed to the existing standard that requires all grains served to be "whole grain-rich". Sodium limits would remain at their current levels, rather than decreasing in the 2017 and 2022 school years as planned.
