USDA proposes that pasta is a veggie, potatoes are fruit and other reasons to pack an IQed lunch.
You may recall laughing when in 2011 Congress determined that pizza was a vegetable. But at least you could' kind' of follow the dots from tomato paste on the pizza to veggies even though tomatoes are a fruit.
But just recently the White House announced a series of proposals that would further roll back the nutritional standards governing school breakfasts and lunches improved under her landmark Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Due to this children will be eating more refined grains, more sodium, and more potatoes than recommended.
The new proposed rule will allow school districts to do the following if it goes through:
In the meantime there are so many simple healthy options. We suggest you pack a healthy lunch by including IQed and have so many recipes to share!
This is USDA's second roll-back of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, the first, in 2018, undid the whole grain, nonfat milk, and sodium rules meant to address growing health concerns including the rising levels of obesity and prediabetes in American children and teens.

IQed provides all the good stuff like essential nutrients, turmeric, complete protein, and Omega 3s and is tested free of all the bad stuff like heavy metals, preservatives, hormones, and pesticides. Did you know that IQed is one of the only foods tested free of heavy metals? Heavy metals are neurotoxins that store in the body. Even if a food is certified as organic it doesn't mean it's free of heavy metals.
