USDA to limit sugar, salt, and fat in foods at public schools

Pressure from consumer and non-profit groups to eliminate all forms of "junk" food from public school lunch rooms across America has led the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to pose to ban chips, soda pop, candy bars, and many other sugary, salty, high-fat foods from not only school cafeterias, but also from campus vending machines.

According to the Kids' Safe & Healthful Foods Project, the goal is to increase the amount of fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy items that children eat while restricting access to foods like French fries, pizza, and ice cream that are high in fat, sugar, and calories. The USDA appears to be onboard with this general framework, having announced similar goals back in January as part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (http://blogs.usda.gov/2012/01/25/healthy-meals-and-healthy-kids/).

Dr. Iverson's Comment
 
I still am amazed to see the diet diaries of the majority of teenagers that visit our clinic say foods like “latte, bagel, energy bar, cookie, fries, chips etc” for their meals - a diet void of true nutrition and high in sugar and stimulatory chemicals.  It’s no wonder the children have such a hard time focusing in class as well as being too tired to stay awake.   
 
We see incredible results when our young patients adopt a predominantly whole foods diet. This doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy pizza and hamburgers once in a while, rather it means the majority of the diet consists or non-processed whole food like chicken, beef, fish, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, etc. This is certainly a good start and hopefully the school lunches will get away from the processed pre-made foods and return back to the old ways of making the food from scratch.
 
 I also am very opinionated when it comes to subsidized food for low income families. I would support a measure that put limitations on the types of food that can actually be purchased with food stamps- emphasizing whole foods like grains, legumes, and vegetables.   I would also support a measure that made attendance to a cooking class as part of the mandate to receive the stamps.   Just imagine what this alone could do to the health care costs of Medicare and Medicaid?
