School nutrition standard opt-out is Congress’ cop-out

If the House stays its current course — over the objections of the national PTA, respected school nutrition leaders, and the entire public health community — parents in every congressional district across the country will be outraged.

If I were a congressman who voted to allow schools not to serve any produce and still call it a meal, I would not be looking forward to my next townhall meeting.

Mr. Stenzel, I am feeling your desire to put more money in your own pocket with the taxpayers money. The SNA is not asking to take your fruits and veggies off the menus. They just want the kids to decide on there own (what a concept) what and how much they want to eat. You guys make me laugh at how you slam the SNA and make them look so bad just so you can keep selling your product. It not about the kids with you , ITS ABOUT THE MONEY, MONEY, MONEY.
