Junk Food Marketing in Schools Bill Passes NH Senate

The NH Senate, by a bipartisan vote favoring Senate Bill 103, agreed that schools should be safe from marketing and advertising of junk food.

The bill aligns the foods that are allowed to be marketed and advertised at schools with existing nutrition standards for foods that can be served or sold on school grounds during the day.  The American Heart Association and partners in the NH Healthy Active Kids Coalition maintain that efforts to teach kids healthy habits are being undermined by food industry marketing directed at kids in schools. We are grateful for the support of Senators to help children grow up at a healthy weight and reduce costly chronic diseases by passing this bill.  SB 103 is now being considered in the House of Representatives.
