Technical Abstract: School feeding programs must meet federal nutrition guidelines, but less-nutritious 'competitive' foods also sold in schools do not have to. Here's what should be done. One can hardly read an article about obesity in children in either the popular press or the scientific peer-reviewed literature and not see the words "school lunch" somewhere in the article. But is this connection warranted? Let's take a close look at school meals in the United States.
