The USDA is reviewing a proposal to start providing healthy food at schools across America. The state of our nation is not good and part of the reason why is the poor and worsening health of our nation.
Hannah Zeciri wrote an interesting article: Are Public Schools Promoting an Unhealthy Lifestyle for Our Kids? After graduating from college she worked as a substitute teacher for awhile and was "disturbed and quite sad" by what she learned about (middle & high school) kids' understanding of nutrition. She wondered: "What in the world is the public school system promoting in terms of health and fitness and why aren't they doing more for the kids?"
At the end of her article she write: Come on people, let your voice be heard! Maybe if we get enough people talking then things could start to change.
Whether you are ready to 'start talking' or not, at least take a minute today to let USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack know that we care and want healthier school meals for all American kids.
