      Thanks, Ryan. I agree. The new standards are a good start. I would like to see the USDA give local schools and parents more room to customize the standards in order to better address the needs of their students and communities. If parents and citizens agree with me, I hope they will speak out to their school boards, representatives and senators in Congress, and the USDA itself.

      You can follow the USDA on Twitter @USDA and @USDANutrition. You can find out how to contact your elected officials here:
