Legislation to ban unhealthy food advertising in Rhode Island schools is moving through the General Assembly.  The House has passed a bill to ban ads for foods that do not meet minimum nutritional standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  Supporters say that with a dramatic increase in the number of obese children, the goal is to promote healthy eating habits.  The House-passed bill now goes to the Senate, which has passed similar legislation.
