WIESBADEN, Germany --- Didn’t like those fish sticks or the ham salad served in the school cafeteria?

Now’s your chance to sound off as the Exchange School Meal Program Annual Survey is available online for students, parents, teachers and administrators through March 24.

The survey’s input is used, in conjunction with the Army and Air Force Exchange Service’s dietitian, to develop future menus, according to an AAFES news release.

The Exchange School Meal Program, run by AAFES, served more than 4.2 million meals last school year and supports school lunch programs for kindergarten through 12th grade students on Army and Air Force installations in nine countries, according to an AAFES website.

The program follows regulations and nutrition guidelines set by the Department of Agriculture. Standards require meal options to meet strict limits for calories and saturated fat and must include more whole grains, less sodium and a wider variety of vegetables.

The survey is available at www.shopmyexchange.com/community/schoollunch.
