Congress is getting ready to debate reauthorizing Child Nutrition Act

From The Chicago Tribune: Nachos, once an occasional indulgence at the ballpark or a festival, have become a staple entree in the Chicago Public Schools and other districts. The dish is on the menu every day in the city's high schools and regularly offered to younger students as well. Child health advocates concerned about such menu choices are turning their attention to Washington, D.C., where Congress is gearing up to debate the reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act. They say making changes to the law presents the best chance to put more healthful food on school lunch trays.
