The U.S. Department of Agriculture has released a new proposal -- Smart Snacks In School -- that would provide guidelines about snack foods for secondary schools. Some say schools that had made some changes are now waiting for national standards before taking additional steps. However, two high schools in Clarke County, Ga., have eliminated vending machines and a la carte snacks in cafeterias. "It's important to teach school-age children to eat a well-balanced diet to help achieve and maintain a healthy weight, promote health, and prevent disease," Nutrition Director Paula Farmer said.
