TV talk-show host Montel Williams’ daughter Wyntergrace is a real peta2-type girl, and she rocks. She’s only 14 years old, but she’s heading to Washington, D.C., this week to ask Congress to change the Child Nutrition Act to require public schools to provide healthy vegetarian options to students.
Wyntergrace has also written a letter to Sasha and Malia Obama asking them to join the campaign and sign her petition. She points out that while they are lucky enough to attend a private school where healthy options are available, most kids standing in line in public school cafeterias have to pick from fat-laden hamburgers, high-calorie chicken fingers, and greasy pizza.
What ever happened to equality?
We hope that Sasha and Malia join Wyntergrace in her fight. Congress has needed to step up on this issue for a while, and the support of the first daughters might be just what our representatives need to make them stop dragging their feet.
