School Bans Pop And Other Snacks At Football Games
I can’t have a Coke at a high school football game? How un-American is that? The total ban on the sale of soft drinks is part of a new policy governing the sales of healthy foods and beverages.
School officials are also banning the sale of gridiron staples like buttered popcorn and potato chips. Instead, football fans will be encouraged to nosh on baked tortilla chips, reduced fat string cheese and hummus. You’ve got to be kidding me.
The Portland Public School system will no longer allow soft drinks to be sold on school property – including at high school football games. The far-reaching policy covers food and beverages served at sporting events, staff parties, and school celebrations. Soft drinks will no longer be sold in the faculty lounge.
This could be coming to a school near you soon. I hope not.
