Reducing Competitive Foods and Beverages in California Public Schools: Five Case Studies
Competitive foods and beverages are those items sold or provided in schools that are not part of the National School Lunch Program. This usually means foods and drinks that are sold in vending machines, cafeteria a la carte lines, and school stores. By focusing on these types of food and beverages, health advocates have a unique opportunity to advance school-wide health initiatives.
