The tough trainer on The Biggest Loser, Jillian Michaels, is taking on public school lunches. To help fight childhood obesity, she’s urging congress to pass the Improving Nutrition for America’s Children Act. The bill will get schools to serve more fruits, veggies and other plant-based meal options.
“I’m writing to you with a request that just might put me out of business,” writes Jillian on HealthySchoolLunches.org. “I want you to help fight childhood obesity so that fewer people will need to go through the difficult process of shedding excess pounds. More than a third of America’s children are now overweight or obese.”
