Ohio House OKs Bill for Healthier School Food
A bill to attack childhood obesity by requiring healthier options in school cafeterias has advanced in the Ohio Legislature.
By a 77-21 vote, the Ohio House on Wednesday approved legislation which also would have schools do body-mass-index screenings on students.

The legislation now returns to the state Senate for a final vote. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
