TX and CA are moving towards phasing out junk food

May 9, 2015

TX and CA are moving towards phasing out junk food in schools due to lack of nutritional value and the propensity for developing obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and sleep apnea. Effort is compared to phasing out nicotine temptation. 30% of CA students are overweight; 77% are out of shape; 98% have diets that fall short of national nutritional standards. Some argue schools depend on income from sales of snack food.
