Florida gets a B-
on school food report card

Florida earned a B- for its schools' foods, says a nonprofit group that evaluates school nutrition policies.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest is based in Washington, DC. The group gave an F to 23 states and a D to eight others after evaluating school policies regarding foods and beverages sold in campus vending machines, school stores and school fund-raisers.

The evaluation excluded school meal programs.

The nation's highest grade, an A-, was awarded to Kentucky, where school vending machines are filled with bottled water and dried fruit instead of soda and snack cakes.

Report the report here.
