Stenzel Comments on Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Study

Jan 04, 2016

“This study shows that students are choosing healthier meals largely because of the increased availability and variety of fruits and vegetables in school meals. These results reinforces the need to continue, not roll back, the good work going on in schools across the country which includes offering plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to the more than 30 million kids who rely on school meals every day. Healthy school meals help children ‘make half their plate fruits and vegetables.’ I urge Congress to maintain the strong fruit and vegetable standards in school meals as they work to reauthorize the child nutrition programs.”

Statement from Tom Stenzel, President and CEO, United Fresh Produce Association on the release of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Study “The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act Improved the Nutritional Quality of the Meals Selected by Students and Did Not Reduce School Lunch Participation Rates.”
