Overall, it will continue to take combined efforts and better communication among vendors and distributors, along with key players in government, industry, and school foodservice, for changes to occur. Given the current economic environment and health status of our nation, upcoming discussions and collaborations should be set in the context of rising energy and food-related costs, an escalating prevalence of chronic diseases among children and adults, and sky-rocketing health care costs. Together, with improved communication and partnerships, we can shift our nation toward the development of healthier whole grain foods and implement policy and regulatory recommendations that can improve the diets of our children and help ensure a better future through successful delivery of whole grain foods in schools.
