Hold the mystery meat: Military bases to get first nutrition standards upgrade in 20 years – The Washington Post

Hold the mystery meat: Military bases will soon be serving more fruits, vegetables and low-fat dishes under the first program in 20 years to improve nutrition standards across the armed services.
