City Council members in Washington, D.C., have introduced a bill that would expand physical-education requirements for students and ensure they have more access to fresh, local produce -- part of an effort to curb childhood obesity. The proposed requirements would apply to students in public and charter schools. Under the bill, students in grades K-8 would receive 150 to 225 minutes of physical education each week, depending on their age.
