Hoeven wants permanent end to federal school lunch limitations

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of senators is backing a bill that makes permanent a more relaxed set of U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition guidelines for students’ breakfasts and lunches in the nation’s schools.

The Sensible School Lunch Act was recently introduced by Sens. John Hoeven, R-N.D., and Mark Pryor, D-Ark.

The act fixes the latest rulings on meat and grain servings made in December by the Department of Agriculture.
