The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the White House recently announced new rules that would limit the amount of marketing for unhealthy foods that children are exposed to in school. While some are lauding the move as a giant step in the right direction, others say it simply doesn’t go far enough.
Your child may not be able to by a Coke from their lunch line, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t fed junk marketing from Coca-Cola and other similar companies. The vast majority of U.S. schoolchildren are exposed to junk food marketing while in school, no doubt contributing to the obesity epidemic still prevalent among children of all ages.
