(Washington Times) The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s new school snack rules are designed to replace foods of little nutritional value with low-fat dairy, fruits, vegetables and lean proteins. But not everyone is enthused.

Rep. Lee Terry, Nebraska Republican, tweeted: “RIP tater tot. Thanks to @USDA.”

His account also said “Gatorade and sugary drinks and chips banned in schools by @USDA. #nannystate.”

Meanwhile the initiative, announced Thursday by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, is winning praise from fitness champions like first lady Michelle Obama.
