Kentucky receives the nation's highest rating for its school nutrition policy.
The Nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest gave Kentucky an "A-minus" yesterday for cutting out sugary and fatty choices in vending machines and school stores throughout the day.
Twenty-three states earned "F's" and eight others got "D's".
Tonya Chang with the American Heart Association in Kentucky says the policy sends a healthy message to Kentucky's children, but it won't solve what she calls the child obesity epidemic.
She says she'd like to see more fresh fruits and veggies and more whole grains in school lunches.
