Scool Lunches Now A $1B Nutrition Battlefield

"School lunches have become a billion dollar battlefield. On one side there are those pushing for changes in the way millions of kids eat. On the other is an industry that has had a long and successful run inside lunchrooms." 

"The Food Industry had a full menu of objections. 'Salt and sodium have important functional properties.... Trans fat should not be inadvertently discouraged... Limiting starch makes lunch unappealing and confusing.'"

The adjective "confusing" made me laugh.  But perhaps that's funny only because it's true.
