New School Foods Report Card
Posted by on February 12, 2007
23 states get an F and Kentucky tops the list with an A -. Those are the results of the Center for the Science in the Public Interest’s (CSPI) evaluation of policies for foods and beverages that are sold in schools through vending machines, school stores, fundraisers, and a la carte lines for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Even with some states making headlines for bumping soda out of schools and the beverage industry making promises to get soda out of schools, we found that the majority of states still allow too much junk food to be sold in schools.
