business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Illinois Board of Education has proposed, as part of its move to ban junk food from schools, that new rules focus on the nutritional content of specific foods rather than broad categories. For example, banned from the schools would be products in which calories from fat exceed 35 percent (except nuts and seeds), calories from saturated fat exceed 10 percent, and total calories exceed 200 for an individual package.

The result of such an approach, however, means that one-ounce bags of baked potato chips would be permissible, while whole milk would be banned – a notion that is a little bit controversial.

So beer has health benefits and whole milk isn’t good for you?

Crazy world.
