“Our kids deserve more healthy fruits, vegetables and whole grains not more sugar and salt,” said Rep. Farr. “Four years ago, Congress made a promise to school parents that their tax dollars would no longer be wasted on junk food in the lunchroom. We are here to uphold that promise and save healthy school lunches. The new standards are working. 90% of schools are successfully meeting them and we are reversing the obesity epidemic.”
