RHINELANDER - Students going back to school could see some changes to what food they can buy at school.
New food requirements went into effect over the summer.
One of those is changes to what kinds of snacks students can buy.
There are stricter requirements for how much sodium, calories and fat can be in food.
Food also needs to be more than half whole grain.
Food service workers at the School District of Rhinelander have had to make some changes to recipes.
"So our extras that we have sold at the high school level and middle school level will be different this year," says Food Service Director Pat Karaba. "There will be some changes, we're looking at our cookie recipe, seeing if those will fall in. Our snacks, or chips or pretzels they have to be in smaller packages in order to fall in with that requirement."
School cafeterias aren't the only ones making changes.
Food manufacturers are also trying to keep up with the new requirements.
"Manufacturers themselves, Kellogs has been running rapid, General Mills trying to fall into these new regulations for food services across the country. So they're also having to make changes, because it has to be 51% whole grain or more," says Karaba.
Food service workers also need to serve a cup of fruits or vegetables during breakfast.
