Clinton announces agreement for healthier lunches
A recent article in the Washington Post tells of an agreement announcement from former President Bill Clinton concerning leading food manufacturers and the push for healthier school lunch options. Seven companies have agreed to increase the sale of foods that meet science-based nutrition standards by 50% within five years. In addition, the manufacturers have agreed to set prices for healthy food options no higher than for those that are unhealthy.
