The article reports on the refusal of many school districts in Connecticut to sign up for the state's new Healthy Food Certification Program (HFCP). The HFCP sets specific standards for the types of foods and beverages that can be sold in schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program. Several districts have decided to forgo the extra money, rather than adhere to standards that prohibit them from relying on the snacks, sodas and candies that fuel vending sales and fundraising efforts.
