The amount of sugar and fat in food served up to children in Californian schools is set to be restricted after the senators voted 22-15 to approve a bill by Sen. Martha Escutia, D-Commerce. The bill was created in response to fears about the growing numbers of inactive, obese and unhealthy school age children. Sen. Deborah Ortiz, D-Sacramento explained that these overweight children will suffer from health problems such as diabetes and heart disease: "These are children who will burden our health care system in the next ten, 20 and 30 years."
