Proposed USDA Rules Pasta A Vegetable

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: 

  1. Pastas made with vegetable flour can count that pasta as an actual vegetables are served with it. 
  2. Potatoes can count as a fruit. 
  3. More pizza, burgers, and fried chicken (the proposed changes enlarge the loophole allowing school districts to circumvent Smart Snack Guidelines.) 
  4. Half the amount of fruit at breakfast.

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.
