A Full Plate for Schools.
Marlowe, John
American School Board Journal, v189 n1 p22-25 Jan 2002

Commercials promoting junk food seem ubiquitous, and children are spending too many inactive hours watching television. Major challenges include the open-campus lunch period and cash-strapped schools using profits from school vending machines for programs and equipment. (MLF)
