The U.S. Agriculture Department floated a new school lunch rule Wednesday that would let cafeterias skip the whole grains and serve salty food, as well as sweetened milk.

The USDA included similar rules in May as part of temporary budget legislation. Wednesday’s announcement would solidify the rules.
