Power feed to ceiling lights


I am running new wire for new lighting for kitchen renovation. It will simplify wiring if I can run the power feed directly to ceiling fixture and run just a switch wire from the wall switch. Is this permitted by code?

NEC2011 requires neutral in the switch box. If you run a switch loop use 3 wire cable and include the neutral.
