Soft drinks and school lunch

(article, Culinate staff)

A new study, reports the New York Times Well blog, claims that reducing the availability of soft drinks in schools does little to improve overall student eating habits. The study apparently didn't assess whether schools that cut back on pop also reformed their food offerings. But Well notes that a second study, from last year, points out that kids' diets generally worsen over the summer break. Again, it'd be nice to know what those kids are really eating, both in school and out of it.
