The success of Michelle Obama’s wildly unpopular school lunch program is a matter of “national security” according to a retired rear admiral writing for The Hill.
In an article entitled “School Lunch Programs Matter to US Military, National Security,” Casey W. Coane argues that the growing backlash against federal “nutrition standards” endanger not only the country but the military as well.
“As a retired rear admiral, I view the school lunch program as one of our most important assets in the battle against obesity, which is a major problem for the military because almost one in three young adults in the U.S. is too overweight to serve,” writes Coane. “Healthy eating and exercise habits start at home, but schools should be a focal point in combating childhood obesity because many kids get up to half of their daily calories at school.” Coane goes on to assert that the nationwide roll-out of the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” has worked to replace unhealthy foods with “whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean proteins.”
