ATLANTA, May 13 (UPI) -- A U.S. researcher has linked child obesity and the federal school lunch program.
Rusty Tchernis of Georgia State University's Andrew Young School of Policy Studies in Atlanta said children participating in the National School Lunch
Program have an increased likelihood of being overweight.
However, Tchernis said participating in the School Breakfast Program was a more positive experience.
"The School Breakfast Program is a valuable tool in the current battle against childhood obesity,".
