How does banning unhealthy foods at school concession stands sound as a goal for the Wake County school system?
As noted in today's article, the district's School Health Advisory Council will present to the school board today this list of recommendations as part of its annual report. The most controversial recommendation would ban the sale of unhealthy foods such as "candy bars, donuts, cookie dough, bake sales, etc.” by schools or “school affiliated groups.”
This recommendation would cover fundraisers whether they're held during or outside the school day. It also encompasses the food sales done by the booster groups to help raise money for athletic programs.
