Obama administration announces new restrictions on marketing unhealthy food in schools

By Caroline May | The Daily Caller

Not only is the Obama administration capping what students can eat it is also limiting what kinds of food advertisements they can see in school as well.

The White House and Department of Agriculture revealed new rules Tuesday to phase out junk food advertisements on school campuses and ensure that any marketing is in line with its healthy standards.

“The idea here is simple — our classrooms should be healthy places where kids aren’t bombarded with ads for junk food,” first lady Michelle Obama, who has been spending the week celebrating the fourth anniversary of her anti-obesity Let’s Move! campaign, said in a statement.
