WASHINGTON (AP) - As soon as next year, high-calorie sports drinks and candy bars will be gone from school vending machines and cafeteria lines. In their place will be diet drinks, granola bars and other healthier items. The Agriculture Department says it's going to make sure for the first time that all foods sold in the nation's 100,000 schools are healthier. It'll do so by applying limits on fat, calories, sugar and sodium to almost everything that is sold during the school day.
