Report: Schools improving their nutrition, physical education policies
Posted at: 08/28/2013 6:34 AM
A new report from the CDC finds more schools are improving their nutrition and physical education policies.
Since 2006, there has been a 13-percent drop in the number of school districts allowing soft drink advertisements on campus and a similar increase in districts prohibiting junk food in vending machines.
Schools are also doing a better job making nutritional information about cafeteria foods available to parents.
And while the number of schools requiring physical education has increased since 2000, experts say there is still room for improvement.
