Officials Gather for School Nutrition Forum

SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (AP) _ Dozens of Connecticut school food service directors and children’s health specialists are joining state and federal officials for a conference on school nutrition programs.

The event Wednesday in Southington will focus on new regulations by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for nutrition in school cafeteria foods, including offering more whole grain products and items with lower sodium.

Speakers will also discuss other hot topics in school nutrition. They include whether flavored milk should be offered with unflavored milk in cafeterias, whether to worry about sugar substitutes and how much high-fructose corn syrup is in some school food items.

Presenters will include a Yeshiva University medical school professor and a regional director of the USDA.

The event comes as communities nationwide mark the USDA’s National School Lunch Week through Friday.
