Debatable that local kids will notice any difference from the past years. SJ county school lunches have been widely known for decades to be inedible. I am sure the obama kids will notice their school lunch changes too.

You want proof these people are idiots?
I have it right here.

From the article::
The new standards require foods sold in schools to adhere to at least one of the following guidelines. Foods served must:
• list the first ingredient as a fruit, vegetable or dairy or protein product;
(and)
"A lot of our schools have snack bars," Minor said. "They were able to sell things like nachos and pickles, and now they have to comply with Smart Snacks."

First ingredient of Doritos Nacho chips? CORN, a vegatble.

First ingredient of pickles? CUCUMBER, A vegetable.

Nachos and pickles are just fine under the “Smart Snacks” guidelines.
They are idiots.

What people are idiots--government people who created the guidelines or the school district spokesperson?

Both.
