Wyntergrace Williams Wants Your School Lunch to Get an A+
In PCRM’s new “Does Your School Lunch Get an A+?” ad, Wyntergrace Williams tells readers how to encourage schools to provide more healthful plant-based meals that will help students to power up their bodies and brains.
The teenage Williams helped PCRM in 2009 when she spoke at a congressional briefing and presented a PCRM petition signed by more than 50,000 students and adults who want the government to fight childhood obesity by helping schools serve more fruits, vegetables, and low-fat vegetarian meals. She is the daughter of television icon Montel Williams.
Her new advertisement encourages readers to visit PCRM’s Healthy School Lunch campaign at HealthySchoolLunches.org. The website is packed with healthful recipes, nutrition information, and other resources for students, parents, teachers, and school food service workers.
Menus in many school lunch programs are too high in saturated fat and cholesterol and too low in nutrient-rich vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. More than 70 percent of schools serve meals whose saturated fat exceeds federal dietary regulations, according to the government’s School Nutrition Dietary Assessment Study.
