The article reports on the concerns of school administrators in the U.S. on the financial effect of the law which limits the types of foods that can be sold in schools. Administrators expressed concern that the law would hurt districts financially, by taking away the types of foods most often sold in profitable vending machines and at fundraisers. However, several school districts are making progress with wellness policies such as the San Diego Unified School District.
