I agree the junk food and low nutrient value foods served in school need to finally come to a halt.  Kids need to be taught how to eat healthy.  I am glad the government is supporting our kids.  However, the schools are only part of the obesity epidemic.  Food choices need to be incorporated in the home.  Parents need to take responsibility of their child’s diet and get outdoors and exercise with their kids.  Kids follow by example. Choosing healthier, nutritient packed foods and exercising is easy but it needs to be taught how it is done.  It benefits both the parents and the kids.
