School nutrition professionals in Portland, Maine, are preparing to implement new nutrition policies approved last month. City schools already have been adhering to the requirements of the Healthier Schools U.S. Challenge -- part of first lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" campaign -- and schools also abide by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation beverage standards.
