Stanford study indicates school meals may expose children to unsafe levels of BPA
Federal standards for school meals are intended to keep kids healthy. But with emphasis solely on nutrition, schools are missing another component critical to students' health – exposure to toxic chemicals, according to a study led by Jennifer Hartle, a postdoctoral researcher at the Stanford Prevention Research Center.

  • BPA exposure is a concern for schools, just as it is for families purchasing food from the grocery store or at restaurants.
  • This study shows BPA exposure from school meals is at a safe level according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
  • The study did not conclude that consuming school meals results in a greater risk of BPA exposure than consuming brown bag lunches or meals from restaurants.
