Research results: Green Smoothies Change Lives [part 1 of 2]

Junk food vending in schools . . . Part 2 of 4

According to Ace Stryker of the Daily Herald, Child Nutrition Supervisor Jenilee McComb in Provo District is working on a policy for this fall that imposes a 300-calorie limit on vending machine goods.   This is well intentioned, but plenty of nutrition free, acidic, processed foods can be sold in portions lower than 300 calories.
