Rice Krispies claims it is part of a healthy, balanced breakfast, but apparently, it's not healthy enough and faces being expelled from schools, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.
FOX News Radio's Bill Vitka explains:
(Rice Krispies Commercial) "Snap, crackle, pop makes the world go round."
But there will be a little less snap, crackle, pop in school. Rice Krispies, as well as Fruit Roll-Ups, Doritos, Welch's Fruit Snacks and Smartfood White Cheddar Popcorn; they're all on a list to be banned under newly proposed Federal regulations. New rules spell our what kinds of foods may or may not be available in the fight against childhood obesity.
Rice Krispies doesn't appear to meet the new standards because the cereal's first ingredient, rice, is neither vegetable nor whole grain. It's got to be one of those to be in a vending machine or be a fruit, dairy product or protein food or combination.
