Feds Upgrade Nutrition Requirements
The federal government has released new information on what they believe to be the best in nutrition requirements for the American people. As such there are many who are scrambling to meet the new requirements to ensure that children around the US are getting what they need from their diets and so on during the school days.
One of the biggest issues at this point is the lower number in the salt department. The government has dipped the salt requirement for the day to a number that is dramatically lower than the previous figures. This has created quite a buzz in the world around as the amount of salt is starting to move to a point where no salt is needed in the diet at all.
Furthermore, the government is now suggesting that fish become a regular part of the healthy diet. The benefits of eating fish on a regular basis have been established over the years and the government feels that it is best to ensure that all Americans start to eat a regular portion.
But there are many who have said that the requirements are a bit unrealistic to say the least. The requirements on salt alone suggest that eating any pre-packaged foods is out of the question, making it difficult for the easier meals to be fixed.
The upgraded guidelines are set to be instituted throughout the school systems and will likely take effect at the beginning of the new school year for 2011.
