Sarah Silverman stands up for healthier school lunches

Sarah Silverman joins the fight for healthier scool lunches, by urging Congress to support the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010, the bill that will offer schools the choice of serving healthier meals.

The comedienne Sarah Silverman followed Scarlett Johansson, Ellen DeGeneres and Woody Harrelson and wrote a letter to Congressman George Miller, asking him to support the bill:

"I'm writing to you about something that has shocked and offended me. And trust me when I say it takes a lot to shock and offend me. Some of the foods we're feeding kids in schools are repulsive - and that unhealthy food is feeding the childhood obesity epidemic. All kids - vegetarian or not - should have healthy options. I think that we forget the simple fact that what we put in our bodies directly affects our bodies".

"Many kids aren't able to bring lunches from home - they have to eat what's in the lunch line. Without healthful options in the cafeteria, we're doing our children and the future of our country a great disservice".

Sarah Silverman is convinced that these changes will lower health care costs and added in her latter:

I'm positive we can make a difference. If we help children develop healthy habits early on, they'll have a lower risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes in the future. And that would mean lower health care costs. See? Only good comes from this. I know you're as serious as I am about helping kids succeed and stay healthy.
