The Child Nutrition Act needs to be reauthorized so that children at public schools across the nation will be fed healthy foods. EVERY child deserves access to healthy foods, because health should be a right, not a privilege.
“We believe that federally funded nutrition programs should provide all children with the healthy food they deserve. This includes low fat and safe dairy, fresh fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. Schools should be soda and junk-food-free zones and serve food that complements and furthers parents’ efforts to feed their children healthfully.”
Please urge Congress to make healthy food a reality at all schools across the country. By signing the petition, you pledge to make healthy food a priority and are asking your representatives to do the same.
