Tell USDA: I Support Healthy Options

Roughly 40 percent of students buy a snack at school each day. Even if students eat a healthy lunch, research shows they often still consume excess calories from side dishes their cafeteria might serve, such as french fries.

Right now, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is considering updated nutritional guidelines that would make sure schools sell healthy snacks and drinks to students. But we only have until April 9 to weigh in!

Tell the USDA you support these important guidelines.
