New laws could affect school bake sales
(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.
