Under Pressure, Obama Administration Backs Off School Lunch Rules

Bowing to pressure from kids, schools and lawmakers, the Obama administration has reversed some of the big changes it made to the school lunch program this year.

For example: under the rules enacted in August, schools couldn't offer a grilled chicken sandwich and celery sticks with peanut butter for dipping for lunch, saying that's too much protein.  But now with this new reversal, they can.
