Save our Kids from the Trump Administration! Send Comments on USDA's Proposed Nutrition Roll Backs

Updated: Feb 3

Hi team,

Sonny Perdue has just proposed serious roll backs to Michelle Obama's Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act. Please send comment to oppose these roll backs. Below is some sample language. Thank you!


Millions of American kids are getting half or more of their daily calories at school, so school meals really matter. With obesity hitting 1 in 3 children nationwide, these USDA roll backs and the prior set of Trump administration, will mean our kids will be eating more refined grains, more sodium, and more potatoes than recommended, and they'll be more frequently offered less healthy a la carte foods like pizza and burgers. In an era of rising childhood obesity, it just doesn't make sense to go backward—especially since the USDA's own study shows that school food reform has been a resounding success.


Please share!
