Muir expects this growth to continue to grow.
“If the federal funding stays there, it will continue to grow, and no matter what happens I don’t think we will move backward. I think fresh fruits and vegetables will have a big place in school lunches from now on,” he said.
Muir’s passion for seeing a change in America’s children’s eating habits has personal roots.
“I didn’t have this when I was young, and I never developed those good eating habits, and it’s something that I struggle with every day,” he said. “We need to develop those healthy eating habits into the children, because they are the adults of tomorrow.”
