Editorial: School Food

We are overweight as a nation, and Alabama leads the way.

It doesn't have to be that way.

One way to curb adding pounds and be healthier in general  is to drink water, milk or juice rather than soda.

That could be the case this year in all Alabama public schools, not just elementary schools. 

We encourage the Alabama Board of Education to restrict selling full-calorie carbonated drinks in school vending machines.

Leading a healthier lifestyle is a good lesson to learn in school and this is one way to encourage it.
