Schools Becoming More HealthConscious, Major Study Finds
Posted Sep 11 2008 7:59pm
America’s schools have been responding to growing concern about childhood obesity by reducing junk, improving food offerings and requiring increased physical education, reports The New York Times. (I presume the story is referring to the oddly unmentioned School Health Policies and Programs Study, which provides reports on the health of America’s school children every six years.)
The good news is that more schools are offering salads and vegetables, while almost a third have banned vending machine sales, according to the 2006 version of the study.
