“Poll shows strong support for extending national nutrition standards beyond the school cafeteria”
SCOPE - Lia Steakley
“Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the first major revision of school meal standards in more than 15 years in an effort to reduce childhood obesity rates. In the coming months, the federal agency is expected to extend those rules to food and beverage items sold outside the cafeteria. Poll results released today suggest a majority of Americans would favor nutritional requirements for snack and a la carte foods sold in vending machines and campus stores at schools.”
