Before the Bell: Brain Food for School

(NECN) - As students prepare to head back into the classroom, they may notice some changes to the foods found in the cafeteria.

The menu will include smaller portions with more fruits, veggies, and whole grains. There will also be less trans-fat and sodium in the foods served up at school.

The change is all thanks to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's first major rewriting of nutritional guidelines for government-subsidized school lunches in 15 years.

James Arena-DeRosa, Northeast Regional Administrator for the USDA Food and Nutrition Service, joined "The Morning Show to discuss these changes.
