Congressman Grothman On School Lunch

Congressman Glenn Grothman says the education committee he serves on is finding some common threads in testimony as they consider reauthorization of the free and reduced school lunch program. He says some of that testimony is contradictory. He says the three problems they are consistently hearing about are there are too many hungry children, too many obese children, and too many children are throwing away their food. The federal lawmaker from Campbellsport says you learn early in school what should be included in a good lunch. He says the reason children are throwing away their lunches is because you have too many people at the national level telling them what should go into it. He says the federal government should give the money to states and let them give it to school districts, who will find good food that children want to eat.
