Snack Foods in Schools are Getting Major Overhaul

- Goodbye candy bars and donuts and hello granola bars and dried fruit. Snack foods sold in schools are getting an overhaul.

New federal rules set limits for fat, salt and sugar. This includes treats sold in vending machines.

Snacks must be limited to 200 calories while increasing protein, whole grains and nutrients.

These rules will go into effect for the 2014 and 2015 school year.

We should mention special fundraising events, like bake sales, will still be allowed.
