Alabama May Ban Unhealthy Food in Schools

Here is another attempt to ban junk food:
Alabama May Ban Unhealthy Food in Schools

...a health and nutrition committee told the state school board Thursday that the changes -- such as banning the sale of sodas during school hours and cracking down on waivers exempting students from gym -- are crucial to raising healthy young people. ...

Other recommendations presented to the board included: ...

Restrict consumption of high-sugar, low nutrition foods except when they are medically necessary.
I doubt that the committee has any idea what foods are healthy and what are not. There is no such thing as a "high-sugar, low nutrition food".
