Pilot Seeks to Analyzie Exactly What Kids Eat—and Leave—on Their Lunch Trays

Five San Antonio elementary schools are participating in a pilot USDA funded program that uses high-tech cameras to take before and after pictures of individual child lunch trays, and then calculates the amount of calories and nutrients consumed, reports [2] the Associated Press. The pilot, which is being funded for four years, will be used to fine-tune the analysis program so that it can accurately capture exactly what is on the plates, down to a partially eaten piece of fruit.
