Senate votes to keep popularpotatoes in kids’ school lunches
Potatoes have been rescued for school lunches,thanks to Senate passage Oct. 18 of an appropria-tions amendment to prevent the U.S. Departmentof Agriculture (USDA) from putting limits on pota-to servings in the National School Lunch Program(NSLP).
“We’re gratied at this development,” said Ben
Kudwa, executive director of the Michigan PotatoIndustry Commission, a grower-funded promo-tional and research-support organization. “Pota-toes have been a staple in human diets for at least6,000 years. There’s no reason why they shouldbe restricted in school lunches, especially sincethey’re so popular with the children.”The focus of contention is a proposed USDA rule that would cap usage of “starchy vegetables”at one cup per week per student in the NSLP. Veg-etables like potatoes, corn and peas would vie forinclusion in that one-cup limit. The USDA wantsmenus to include a greater quantity of other veg-etables as well as more fruit.“We heard from school foodservice directors who were troubled by this proposal,” Kudwa said.“Potatoes are so popular because they’re so versa-tile. They can be prepared in so many ways and incombination with so many foods including other vegetables. This rule would put a crimp on thefoodservice directors’ ability to satisfy their cus-tomers, the students.”The USDA was contacted by many of these di-rectors and their professional organizations. Re-
portedly well over 100,000 comments ooded in
to the agency.“Everybody agrees with the USDA’s intent, which is to improve the nutritional values of schoollunches,” Kudwa said. “The problem is the details.
