Students have a nutrition break mid-morning consisting of milk, juice, an orange and either mini sausage roll or Vegetarian Italian bagel at Belmont High School in Los Angeles, California in this file photo from May 18, 2009. The U.S. Agriculture Department plans to propose rules this spring to make such snacks healthier, part of a 2010 law aimed at improving childhood nutrition by, among other things, revamping school foods for the first time in more than 30 years.
