Our newest Child Nutrition Bill

8 Dec

It is worth celebrating! Schools will be reimbursed 6 cents a meal – which isn’t the 18 cents Michelle Obama requested, but it is the first real increase not due to inflation in  many, many years. A collaborative effort to encourage new standards of what is sold in lunch lines and in vending machines. Who doesn’t want better food for their children? Schools are where our children go to learn about life. They learn history and arithmetic, and they also learn what constitutes a meal – what they are served is understood to be normal and nutritious – otherwise, why would it be served at school?

Fruits and vegetables and grains and lean meats and beans… real food on the table in leu of brightly packaged food stuffs with ingredients no one can pronounce correctly. Thanks to all the supporters who called their representatives. Click here to read more.
