Regulation Authority :

RIGL 16-8-10, 16-8-10.1, 16-21-28
7CFR 210/11(b) and 210.19(e)

Purpose and Reason :

This regulation, which previously included both federal and state nutrition requirements for reimbursable school meals and limitations on competitive food and beverages at mealtime, is being replaced by the new proposed Regulation Governing Nutritional Requirements for Reimbursable Meals and Competitive Foods and Beverages; Limitations on Competitive Foods and Beverages at Meal Time. The new proposed regulations now incorporate by reference federal nutritional requirements and set forth only state-specific requirements.  Taken together with the federally-imposed nutritional requirements and limitations on competitive foods and beverages, the new proposed regulations will maintain high nutrition standards for school meals that are reimbursed by the USDA and all other food and beverages that are sold on teh school campus in Rhode Island.
