California School Children Will Be Served Healthier Lunches

Following Michelle Obama's lead, Governor Brown signed a new law aimed at making school lunches more healthful and nutritious.

Starting this school year, kids will see fewer hot dogs and hamburgers and more fruit and vegetables.

The law lowers the allowable amounts of things like calories and saturated fat. 

Critics say laws can't force kids to eat healthy food. Many students simply throw away portions they don't enjoy.

As usual, the authority of parents, teachers, and school officials prevailed.
