(STLMoms) – A  new federal rules may put the squeeze on school bake sales.  The law which took effect last month overhauls nutrition standards at schools.

It trims the fat not just from the lunch menu, but from vending machines and school fundraisers too.   Without state-approved exemptions, any treats sold would have to meet calorie, sodium, fat and other requirements.

Schools that don’t comply face fines.

    To all schools – good luck with your bake sales in the future and the need to raise money for anything. Drop a note in the mail and thank Michelle O… Elections have consequences and you get what you vote for.

    Anyone see a problem with what is happening in this country. They want to control your medical care,what you put into your mouth. Control your schools and what is taught, When they take your guns away “they” Government will control you. Good by America, I knew you when.
