Outlook 2014: What’s Trending in K-12

In 2014, K-12 operators will face a list of challenges ranging from tighter standards for school meal breakfasts to unintended consequences from new rules regarding the sale of “competitive foods” on school grounds.

The big trend in K-12 is “more of the same,” as final requirements from 2010’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act are implemented.
