Lawmakers hope to ban junk food in the schools

It seems unbelievable that this is even on the table, but here it is in the Senate. Lawmakers want to ban candy and soda vending machines from public schools in response to childhood obesity.

How about improving the lunchroom fare too?  From what I've seen, it's still pretty terrible and processed.  
There is absolutely no reason why more fresh food can't be prepared in the schools.  It is a fallacy that it would cost more, particularly when you factor in the health benefits to our kids.
