On January 17, the USDA issued a proposal that will undo years of progress toward healthier food in school meals. If this proposal succeeds, schools can more frequently swap out carrots and cucumbers for french fries. The proposal also creates a so-called "junk food loophole," allowing students to choose unhealthy items in place of a balanced lunch. Now is not the time to turn back the clock on school food! Our kids need us to continue to fight for healthy, high-quality school meals that teach healthy eating habits and help every child reach their full potential!
