The USDA-FNS asked RAND to examine how states perform nutritional reviews and how they might be able to transmit data with limited additional burden.

School food service programs such as those of 1971 did not just happen overnight nor even during the past decade. Preceding today's programs is a long history of over one hundred years of development, constant research, testing and evaluating, in order to provide the best nutrition, nutrition education and food services for the nation's millions of children in school. This book provides a brief background on school lunch programs in Europe, as well as the early attempts in the United States. Also included in the book is the School Lunch Act along with the current issues and development that school food service programs face today.
