"Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives are fighting an effort by the Obama administration to make federally-subsidized school lunches more healthy. A January proposal by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) aimed to limit -- but not eliminate -- fries and pizza on the lunch menu. ... Under pressure from lobbyists and some food companies that sell frozen pizza, salt and potatoes, Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee rejected the new rules, painting them as 'burdensome and costly regulations.'"
