Close to 22% of students in Clark County are obese.  That's higher than the national average which is around 17%.  Some lawmakers are making an effort to tackle this problem and their idea is to ban all Trans Fats from schools.  basically many snacks and fatty foods will be cut from menus and vending machines.  Is this the best way to help kids get lean?
