Take Action – Ask to Improve School Nutritional Standards

Written by Tela Kayne

The USDA’s school nutrition standards were developed in the 1970’s and aren’t consistent with current nutritional science. USDA doesn’t even consider candy bars, snack cakes or french fries to be junk foods. The standards don’t even address calories, saturated and trans fats or sodium.

I added my name to a petition calling for an update to these standards and I hope you will too.


The petition will be hand delivered to Congress June 24th. The more signatures we have, the greater our impact.

  1. Tela,

    Thanks for sharing this important info! I signed and hope everyone else does too. How can we expect our children to thrive on the “edible food like substances” that we feed them in this society?
