Scarlett Johansson Supports Healthy School Meals

Scarlett Johansson shows her support for healthy school lunches in a letter to Congressman George Miller.

“I’m asking you to support the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010,” Scarlett wrote. “It is our responsibility, as adults, to give school children the nutrients and vitamins they so vitally need, especially during school hours where their food intake may be monitored.

“I am so thankful that the National School Lunch Program exists and helps children around the nation get enough to eat. But right now, many of the foods served through this program do not support children’s healthy development,” she added.

The Healthy School Meals Act rewards school districts that offer plant-based vegetarian food choices to a vast number of students.

    Finally a very good idea from Scarlett, so many parents feed their children very unhealthy. Especially American people eat too much fast-food that’s just horridly allmost for the children who are growing up and need healthy food to create a strong immune system!

  • mia

    Yeas, American and German people need to learn how to cook healthy meal for their children, they have the most fat children in the whole World! That’s is scary how unhealthy they look, they can’t live a normal life b/c of their weight

    Just shut up!!! There already starving us with the crap they call food now!!!!!!!

  • Amber-louise

    I dont know very many kids who enjoy plant based foods, unless served in something and they dont know its there.

  • EDU

    We don’t need anymore people involved in education that aren’t collegiately trained EDUCATORS! She knows nothing about child development and WHY school lunches are the way they currently are. Yes, the foods offered are not the most healthy, but they are constructed this way because the school is required to offer a hot lunch that contains an entire day’s worth of nutrients and values in one meal. This is for the children who may not come home to dinner due to poverty or other constraints some families encounter (the children on free and reduced lunch plans). If the lunches offered today violated an educator’s code of ethics, it would have been done away with long ago! If white, middle class Johnny is obese because his mom lets him buy unhealthy food instead of guiding him in a path of eating correctly in moderation (this is already taught in schools, by the way), we need to reteach healthy eating in the schools and it be reinforced at home!

  • yo sista

    PR!!!!!!!!!!!!! This b!tch is so fake. She’s just doing it to get credit for it. *like she cares*

  • food starts at home

    They DO need some sort(s) of reform here too. IMHO The right kind of people who are educated in Diet and Exercise need more authority in this area.

    But, I don’t know if she knows anything about that.

    Scarlett is so cute! I just love her.
    She is so beautiful, smart and talented. Plus she actually cares about people. She is more interested in serious issues around the world instead of parties and fame. Good on her! She is the best celebrity role model…

    It is very nice of her that Scarlett Johansson Supports Healthy School Meals. It is expected from the celebrities to get involved in such activities in the society to repay what they receive from it. Thanks for sharing the information.

    A very noble thought Scarlett shares with us that school going children need healthy and nutritious food.As at this stage children need all sorts of vitamins and nutrients for their full phase development,so it is our duty to help them and provide the best quality for their growth.

    Children are the future citizen of our country ,they are the backbone of our nation and if we will not take good care of them our country will no doubt face problem in the forth coming days .Like Scarlett I also want to express my deep concern on this issue.

    It is really so good of her that she think about the health of children.Children need a balance diet for their mental and physical development,so adding maximum proteins and minerals to their lunch is a appreciable thought.

    The ‘healthy school meal act’ launched by the government is an excellent effort.Because of this act most of the school going children are getting food.The only aspect that should be added is to add is nutritious food items like green vegetables.

    The healthy food is a basic requirement of school going children and the government should take immediate and necessary action to provide nutrition to children for their better health.I am quite relaxed that Scarlett is also concerned about the school children.

    Scarlet has given a very right thought that school going children need extra nutrition at their lunch.I think we all should take some initiative on this issue.Although govt is providing meal to the children but the quality of food is not good enough.So here is my polite plea to the govt to add some healthy food to their lunch menu.

    Zune and iPod: Many people compare the Zune to the touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it’s, I consider that it is a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both Touch and the Nano. It is extremely colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touchscreen, however the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. They weigh about 2/3 as considerably, and it is noticeably smaller wide and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Great effort, especially since many school meals are really scary and far from healthy. Healthy meals don’t have to be expensive, so good step!
