The law was designed to reduce the incidence of childhood obesity by providing healthier choices to students. These standards include:

• Increased produce options, ensuring that students receive both fruits and vegetables
  every day of the week.
• A ban on unhealthy trans fats.
• Portion size guidelines and calorie limits based on the age of children served.
• Increased emphasis on whole grain products.
• Limits on the types of milk served, with an emphasis on low fat (1%) and non-fat varieties.
• Reductions in sodium levels to be phased in over several years.
