Doug Davis, director of foodservice for the Burlington school district, says he is a "big fan" of new federal standards, which have changed what foods schools serve to students each day. Among the changes, he said, are limits on calories, requirements that students eat fruits and vegetables and restrictions on the type of milk that can be served. On a recent day, nutrition professionals served macaroni and cheese, turkey on wheat bread, kale chips, ratatouille, cooked squash and a mixture of raw fruits and vegetables.
