Riverton to Pull Junk Food From Schools
Laramie, Wy – Riverton schools will no longer sell pop or candy.
The Riverton school board decided to remove vending machines with junk food from public schools within the next year and replace them with juice, milk and nutritional snack vending machines.
The only beverages allowed for sale on school grounds on a regular basis will be milk, water, and 100 percent fruit juices.
Candy will be replaced with nutrient-dense foods such as whole grain snacks, fresh fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.
The school board also established dance as a new physical education class for the 2005-06 school year.
