Thank goodness New Jersey’s legislature
is tackling is the major issues facing the state. Starting with the 2007-2008 school year New Jersey public schools will stop selling and serving junk food.
The new rules will halt selling or serving foods during the school day that are high in fat and sugar. Even portions of whole milk will be rationed.
The rules will ban all drinks except low-fat milk, water and 100 percent fruit or vegetable juices from elementary schools. The policy is more relaxed for middle and high school students, allowing some sales of flavored iced teas and sports drinks.
