————————-

“Dear Speaker Pelosi,

“As a parent, I am extremely concerned about the skyrocketing rates of obesity, diabetes, and other serious health problems we’re seeing in children today. I am writing to ask you to take quick action to improve nutritional standards for school meals. Please ensure that H.R. 5504, the Improving Nutrition for America’s Children Act, is voted on and passed this month.

“This crucial legislation would help schools serve more plant-based foods — fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes — because these foods have been shown to help children maintain a healthy weight and avoid disease. Schools should be able to purchase low-cost fruits and vegetables, and they should also have access to vegetarian entree options.

“No school should have to serve high-fat pepperoni pizza and hot dogs just because it can’t afford more healthful meals. Out children deserve better. When kids are introduced to healthy foods at an early age, they are more likely to make healthy good choices throughout their lives.

“Please do everything in your power to pass this improved child nutrition legislation. Better school lunches are critical to keeping the next generation healthy and fit.

“Sincerely,
Hugh Jackman
