Yes, empty calories and artificial flavors and colorings have no place in the school setting, especially since many schools have all but eliminated physical education due to budget cuts. Children need healthy foods and at least some form of physical activity but if our children are forced to do without because of budget cuts,how can anyone justify using what precious resources left by purchasing soda for the children? Milk, water and fresh fruit are far more appropriate.
