Kids need more calories than this. They cannot get good brain function or development on salad. They need EFA's and VFA's and more protein! I bet after all this, they will still be able to get Coke Zero from the vending machine? Because it has zero calories it must have nutritive value? Really? USDA - you are morons.

Is the limit per meal or per day? If its per meal, then this is a great thing. If its per day, then it seems too low. Either way, get the crappy food out and provide nutritious real non-processed food and for the love of life get the sodas out!!!
