Support Healthier School Meals

March 29, 2011 at 12:06 pm Leave a comment

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has proposed appropriate nutritional standards to improve school

Improved USDA meal standards will result in healthier school meals

lunches and breakfasts: more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains; fat-free and low-fat milk; less salt; minimizing unhealthy saturated and trans fats; and better accountability.

For this to become law, the USDA needs your support! To assure that all schools are positioned to serve healthier meals, you can add your support by signing a petition in favor of these undated nutrition standards.

We have only until April 13th to let the USDA know that we  champion the new rules that will lead to healthier school meals.  Sign the Petition offered by Center for Science in the Public Interest.
