Hugh Jackman Writes Nancy Pelosi: Please Pass School Meals Bill

| by I Need My Fix

Wolverine and X-Men DILF, Hugh Jackman is one of those stars that is like everyday folk with everyday-folk concerns: life, his children’s health. Unlike a lot of us, he happens to earn millions per picture, is hot, charming, a gentleman, and is quite pleased with his own member.

He has written Nancy Pelosi pleading with her that H.R. 5504, the Improving Nutrition for America’s Children Act, is voted on and passed this month.

If Nancy had any smarts, she would insist a meeting happened to, you know, "go over" the letter:

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi

Office of the Speaker
H-232, United States Capitol
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Speaker Pelosi,

As a parent, I’m extremely concerned about the skyrocketing rates of obesity, diabetes, and other serious health problems we’re seeing in children today. I’m writing to ask you to take quick action to improve nutritional standards for school meals. Please ensure that H.R. 5504, the Improving Nutrition for America’s Children Act, is voted on and passed this month.

This crucial legislation would help schools serve more plant-based foods—fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes—because these foods have been shown to help children maintain a healthy weight and avoid disease. Schools should be able to purchase low-cost fruits and vegetables, and they should also have access to vegetarian entrée options.

No school should have to serve high-fat pepperoni pizza and hot dogs just because it can’t afford more healthful meals. Our children deserve better. When kids are introduced to healthy foods at an early age, they’re more likely to make healthy food choices throughout their lives.

Please do everything in your power to pass this improved child nutrition legislation. Better school lunches are critical to keeping the next generation healthy and fit.

 

Sincerely,

 

Hugh Jackman
