rules proposed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)—authorized under the Healthy, Hungry-Free Kids
Act of 2010—will require all foods sold in schools to meet strict nutritional
standards beginning in 2014. Though intended by Congress to target snack foods
sold in vending machines, a la carte lines and school stores, these regulations
could have a harmful effect on students in CTE culinary programs that operate
student-run cafés, bakeries and catering businesses.
