School lunch programs to offer yogurt as meat alternative

(NBC) -

The United States Department of Agriculture says, as part of the federal school lunch program, they'll start serving Chobani yogurt as a substitute to meat.

This comes 2 years after the USDA classified Greek yogurt as a meat substitute.

Those with schools hope that kids who don't like meat will eat the protein-rich substitute instead; Greek yogurt is thicker than normal yogurt and has twice the protein of traditional yogurt.
