You may have seen the advertising on mainstream media asking
the dumb question, “Is pizza a vegetable?” Well, the fact of the matter is that
a massive group of lobbyists and Republican lawmakers are trying hard to
classify pizza as a vegetable in order to feed the baked food to our children
in school so they can continue to get paid big bucks. The frozen pizza industry
is a big and profitable industry providing school lunches to thousands of
schools nationwide.

 

This industry is feeling the pinch of Mrs. Obama, “Let’s
Move” campaign, which calls for healthier school lunches for America’s school
children.  Healthier lunches address the issue
that childhood obesity has tripled in the last three decades in America.  Additionally, more and more young people are
being diagnosed with diabetes.

 

“In this Republican Congress, almost anything is up for sale to
the highest bidder and most powerful lobbyists -- including the literal
definition of the word "vegetable" -- and this time, it's coming at
the expense of our kids' health.” Brad Woodhouse – Communications Director-
DNC.

 

School lunches are hard to change -- and it doesn't take a doozy
like "pizza is a vegetable" to know that the corporate interests have
more money and more Washington lobbyists than kids do. That's why pizza was
classified as a vegetable during the Bush years. The Obama administration made
that common-sense change, but the Republican Congress wants to take us back to
the money-for-influence status quo.

If you think this is as ridiculous as we do, tell the GOP that it's time they started picking real
people over corporations (and real vegetables over slices of pizza, for that
matter):

Now what do you think? What kinds of foods would you like them
to feed our kids at school? Foods that teach kids to make healthier choices or
they should eat whatever they want to eat regardless of health risks later in
life.
