USDA finalizes standards for school snacks
from The Hill
The Obama administration finalized a rule requiring all snacks sold in schools to meet the same health standards that first lady Michelle Obama championed for in the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Smart Snacks in School rule, which applies to food sold a la cart in school stores and vending machines, require snacks be made with whole grains, or be low-fat dairy, a fruit, vegetable or lean protein.
