This is an example of two major problems with Congress. First, that taxpayers are paying for these sort of decisions. What a waste. Second, that Congress also doesn't really care about the health of the young people in this country. Sure, on a nutritional level an eighth of a cup of tomato paste can be comparable (not the equivalent) to a half a piece of fruit in some areas. However, you are not getting as full as you would eating the fruit and you are consuming about 33 times more sodium, more than twice as much fat, and almost three times more sugar in doing so.
So with that said, happy eating America. You can rest assured that whenever you eat a slice of pizza you could now be more guilt free because Congress used money and influence rather than science and facts to tell this country what's healthy and what could be just as good as healthy. Expect the amount of pepperoni and cheese on a slice of pizza to be proportional to what is expected of dairy and meat intakes during lunchtime. This way anyone eating frozen pizza for lunch could have the ultimate meal by the meager standards of the US government.
