Bergman, PhD, RDN, CD FAND; Catherine Saade, MS, RD; Emily Shaw, MS, RD; Tim Englund, PhD; Linda Cashman, MS, RD; Katie Weigt Taylor, MS; Tracee Watkins, MBA and Keith Rushing, PhD, RD looks at elementary schools taking part in the HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC), and compares the nutrient content of National School Lunch Program (NSLP) lunches to those that students bring from home to determine that NSLP lunches are indeed better for students.
