The Problem

lunch crunch: can delicious be affordable and nutritious?

This problem asks teams to determine a student's caloric requirements based on his or her individual attributes, assess the percentage of U.S. students who meet the definition of an "average" student, and develop a budget-friendly lunch plan to satisfy nutritional standards and students' palates.
