Johansson Urges Politician To Help Pass Schools Bill

SCARLETT JOHANSSON has appealed to a U.S. Congressman to help support a new bill to encourage healthy eating in America's schools.
The Lost In Translation star has penned a letter to California Congressman George Miller, pleading with him to back the Healthy School Meals Act, which was introduced to Congress this month (Mar10).
If passed, the scheme would reward school districts in the U.S. with additional food aid if they offer students more low-fat, vegetable-based options - and Johansson is backing the bill wholeheartedly.
She writes, “I’m asking you to support the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010. It is our responsibility, as adults, to give school children the nutrients and vitamins they so vitally need, especially during school hours where their food intake may be monitored.
“I am so thankful that the National School Lunch Program (a scheme to give low-cost or free lunches to school children) exists and helps children around the nation get enough to eat. But right now, many of the foods served through this program do not support children’s healthy development.”
