Sarah Silverman is following in the footsteps of Scarlett Johansson and Woody Harrelson by urging U.S. politicians to support a plan to promote healthy eating in schools.
The comedienne has voiced her support for the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010, a bill which which aims to provide America's kids with nutritious lunches.
The scheme would reward school districts with incentives if they give students more vegetables - and Silverman is backing the bill wholeheartedly.
In a letter to Congressman George Miller, Silverman says, "I'm writing to you about something that has shocked and offended me. And trust me when I say it takes a lot to shock and offend me. Some of the foods we're feeding kids in schools are repulsive - and that unhealthy food is feeding the childhood obesity epidemic.
"All kids - vegetarian or not - should have healthy options. I think that we forget the simple fact that what we put in our bodies directly affects our bodies. Many kids aren't able to bring lunches from home - they have to eat what's in the lunch line. Without healthful options in the cafeteria, we're doing our children and the future of our country a great disservice."
And Silverman is convinced the cafeteria changes would reduce health care fees, adding: "If we help children develop healthy habits early on, they'll have a lower risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes in the future. And that would mean lower health care costs. See? Only good comes from this. I know you're as serious as I am about helping kids succeed and stay healthy."
Both Johansson and Harrelson have previously written letters to Congress in support of the bill.

Isn't that the same bill that the thug unionSEIU is still trying to push through Congress,primarily to benefit its food service workers?I guess that means that Ms. Silverman is a toolas well as being an increasing-unfunny skank.
