Officials in an Illinois school district say the price of school lunches is expected to increase for students who pay regular price for the meals. The decision follows a mandate from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The district also will eliminate many popular -- but unhealthy -- items from menus to comply with federal guidelines for school meals. The changes mean more fruits and vegetables and the elimination of items, such as "straw hat," which is made of chips, taco meat and cheese.
