School Breakfast and Lunch

Resolution 11-04.52

WHEREAS the school breakfasts and lunches being offered to our children fulfill the minimum nutritional requirements but are saturated with cholesterol, sugar and salt which lead to obesity,  diabetes and other health risks for children

AND WHEREAS schools make available low-value, high sugar fruit drinks and caffeinated vitamin-enriched sport drinks which lead to a more difficult learning environment,

AND WHEREAS the children are not aware that the foods they are getting are not conducive to good health,

THEREFORE be it resolved that the California State Democratic Party supports the restructuring of the school foods program to include more fruits and vegetables including vegetarian and vegan alternatives with nutritional information posted daily and instruction in nutrition including understanding food nutrition labeling consistent with FDA labeling requirements

AND THEREFORE be it resolved that this resolution be distributed to the all members of the California Legislature.

Submitted by the Progressive Democrats of the Santa Monica Mountains.
