Re: Major restaurant chains to offer healthier choices for kids

Food chain industry and other food companies are so much affected of the policy proposed by NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He recently submitted a plan to the federal government that he felt would combat obesity and diabetes. Sugar-added soft drinks and sodas would no longer qualify for federal food stamp money, if Bloomberg's proposal was accepted. The United States Department of Agriculture, however, put a stop to the plan. Article source: Federal food stamps can still be used to purchase soda.
