Better School Lunches May Lead to Slimmer Students
Date:4/9/2013

all children are exposed to quality nutrition rather than junk food.

"The food industry cannot make significant changes on its own because food companies are beholden to stockholders' concerns about returns to investors," she said. "Consumer demand also doesn't work in the face of millions of dollars spent on food marketing, advertising and lobbying," Nestle pointed out.

"[But] if you take junk food and sodas out of schools, kids don't eat as much of them and are healthier," Nestle said. "If you have strict nutrition standards for school food, the food is healthier and so are the kids. This may seem self-evident, but now we have research to prove it."
