Michelle Obama kicked ass yesterday, announcing not one, but TWO major policy changes regarding school food:
1) For all schools nationwide that have 40% or more of their students eligible for free-or-reduced meals, all students at that school will receive free breakfast and lunch.
2) Advertising of unhealthy food and drinks in schools is banned.
Marion Nestle gives a comprehensive summary of what these announcements mean, and why they are critical steps on her blog. I highly recommend reading her post from yesterday.
These are major moves in the right direction, and a proud day for advocates everywhere. Way to go First Lady.
