Nutrition Standards in the National School Lunch and School 
Breakfast Programs; Approval of Information Collection Request

AGENCY: Food and Nutrition Service, USDA.

ACTION: Final rule; approval of information collection request.


SUMMARY: The Food and Nutrition Service published a final rule entitled 
``Nutrition Standards in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast 
Programs'' on January 26, 2012. The Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) cleared the associated information collection requirements (ICR) 
on February 1, 2013. This document announces approval of the ICR.

DATES: The ICR associated with the final rule published in the Federal 
Register on January 26, 2012 at 77 FR 4088 was approved by OMB on 
February 1, 2013, under OMB Control Number 0584-0006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or 
copies of this information collection should be directed to Jon Garcia, 
Program Analysis and Monitoring Branch, Child Nutrition Division, 3101 
Park Center Drive, Alexandria, VA 22302.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The January 2012 final rule updates the meal 
patterns and nutrition standards for the National School Lunch and 
School Breakfast Programs to align them with the Dietary Guidelines for 
Americans. This rule requires most schools to increase the availability 
of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free and low-fat fluid 
milk in school meals; reduce the levels of sodium, saturated fat and 
trans fat in meals; and meet the nutrition needs of school children 
within their calorie requirements. These improvements to the school 
meal programs, largely based on recommendations made by the Institute 
of Medicine of the National Academies, are expected to enhance the diet 
and health of school children, and help mitigate the childhood obesity 
trend. The proposed rule took comments on the associated ICR until 
March 14, 2011. Compliance with provisions of this rule is effective 
from July 1, 2012. This document announces OMB's approval of the ICR 
under OMB Control Number 0584-0006.

    Dated: June 26, 2013.
Audrey Rowe,
Administrator, Food and Nutrition Service.
