Room for Improvement in Elementary School Children’s Lunches and Snacks from Home

BOSTON (July 22, 2014) ─ Open a child’s lunch box and you’re likely to find that the lunches and snacks inside fall short of federal guidelines. Those are the findings of a study conducted by researchers at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University and in the Department of Public Health and Community Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine.  The findings are published online ahead of print in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
