This article comments on a survey that was released by the School Nutrition Association, which asked members to indicate how successful are their districts at implementing nutrition standards for cafeteria and other meals, installing nutrition education programs and improving the amount of physical activity for students. The survey indicated that most, but not all, operators have implemented standards for reimbursable meals and à la carte cafeteria items. They have been less successful at getting a handle on vending programs.
