Rule changes for school lunches

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The government is making permanent rules to allow schools to serve more meat and grains in school lunches and other meals.

Guidelines restricting those portion sizes were supposed to fight childhood obesity, but too many parents complained their kids weren't getting enough food.

School administrators also say the restrictions were making it hard to plan meals.

The Agriculture Department eliminated limits on meats and grains on a temporary basis more than a year ago.
