More Fat Kids

As part of New York City's three- to five-year plan to serve healthier meals to its 1.1 million public-school children, Newsday reports, pizza calories are getting, well, sliced:

"The deep-dish pizza, for example, went from 413 to 336 calories, with its total fat reduced from 46 percent to 27.5 percent and saturated fat reduced from 13 percent to 8 percent. Cholesterol in the pizza is down to 9 milligrams from 28."

Hey, why not have the schools skip the sugar-laden Snapple, which they're now contractually obligated to sell, and serve the youngsters a nice, juicy slice of pie instead¬óregardless of the fat intake?
