SANTA FE -- The New Mexico Department of Education has proposed restrictions on items that can be vended on school campuses that are far more stringent than the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Smart Snacks In School rules that went into effect July 1.

New Mexico's proposed rule allows only nuts, seeds, yogurt, cheese and fresh fruit to be vended during the school day in middle and high schools. All other snacks can only be vended a half-hour after the end of the school day. It also restricts the size and type of drinks that can be vended on school campuses.
