Turkey Helps Kids Stay Healthy

I'm in the United States, and sometimes I watch a show called Food Revolution (by Jamie Oliver).  He's a British chef who is trying to improve children's lunch menus at schools.  He's already done that in the UK, and now he's trying it in the US.  People from outside of the US probably won't believe what often passes for food in school cafeterias here!

Anyway, the Turkish government wants to stop childhood obesity, so they are making it illegal to sell sodas, fast food, and potato chips at schools.  They'll sell yogurt instead.  They also have new menus.  I think that's great!
