Healthy Helpings

In 2012, the Dubuque Community School District revised its menus to be in compliance with new meal regulations set forth by the federal Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The goal of the changes is to increase the amount of fruits, vegetables and whole grains on school menus while also ensuring age-appropriate calorie ranges – all designed to give students healthier eating options.
