Florida beats feds


on having healthier



school food options
By James L. Rosica

TALLAHASSEE Florida has beaten the feds to the punch sugary fruit punch, that is.
The U.S. Agriculture Department said last Thursday that for the first time it will make sure all foods sold in the nation's schools are healthier by expandimg fat, calorie, sugar and sodium limits to almost everything sold during the school day.
That means, high-calorie sports drinks and candy bars will be removed from school vending machines and cafeteria lines as soon as next year,
replaced with diet drinks, granola
bars and other healthier items.
But for the most part, that's
already happened in Florida, said
Erin Gillespie, spokeswoman for
ADAM PUTNAM state Agriculture Commissioner
N Florida Agriculture Adam Putnam.
Commissioner "Florida has long realized
that healthy. foods are key to
our children's success" she said. "That has been the standard and that is not changing."
The changes, though, affect mainly high schooners. Soda is already banned at Florida elementary schools. Stephanie Spicknall, nutrition coordinator for Pasco County's public schools, said vending machines there already serve whole-grain, reduced-fat chocolate chip cookies, and a cocoa and cherry-puree sweetened bar called the "Vertical G-force."
"The kids refer to it as the 'brownie' and we just kind of go with it," said Spicknall, a registered dietitian.
Art Dunham, director of food services for Pinellas County schools, said his district's snack offerings include granola bars and the "Fruit Wave," a fruit-infused water that comes in a cattlee," with a can top and plastic bottle base.

India-Arie's having



a Songversation"



with you in new CID

By BlackAnzerica Web Lott

India.Anie wants to have a "Songversation" with you. So it's fitting that that's the title
of her latest recording, out last month. The
singer/ songwriter, best known for her boundary breaking songs "Video" and "I Am Not My Hair" took a 4-year break, recording another project called "Open Door," then scratched that and completed "Songversation" in 7 months. Arie says the break was necessary to heal her spirit.
"I've been through a lot of personal transformation and spiritual transformation in the last four years. And health stuff," Arie told the I Tom Joyner Morning Show during her Red Velvet Cake studio appearance for In-Studio X Jam. "And a lot of it was difficult. When I came through the other side of that, I didn't have any music to bring with me.
