Demand Healthy School Lunches

To be delivered to Sonny Perdue, USDA Secretary

Petition Statement

Sonny Perdue, Trump's new USDA Secretary, has rescinded Obama Era rules for healthy school lunches. Children will now be served more refined sugar and saturated fat; two food additives known to cause health problems later in life. Demand this decision be reversed.
There are currently 342 signatures. NEW goal - We need 400 signatures!

Petition Background

As a registered nurse, I know the negative impact on health of refined sugar and saturated fat. These food additives can cause a range of health problems. 1. refined sugar contributes to diabetes with it's neurological and kidney complications; 2. saturated fat contributes to breast cancer and heart disease. Health care costs and mortality rates will increase.
