Rep. Kind applauds decision to include cranberries in school breakfast and lunch programs

July 25, 2013 | 0 comments

U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) reacted to the recent news that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has exempted cranberries from the sugar regulations that threatened to minimize or eliminate the inclusion of cranberries in school breakfast and lunch programs.

This past April, Kind joined a bipartisan group of elected officials from Wisconsin in sending a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack outlining the critical nutritional value that cranberries offer our students.

"I'm pleased that the USDA has recognized the important health benefits of cranberries, especially for young people," said Rep. Kind. "Including them in national breakfast and lunch programs means more of our students can enjoy this delicious and nutritious fruit."

The letter detailed how cranberries are a source of fiber, vitamin C and disease-fighting antioxidants, and urged Secretary Vilsack to exempt cranberries from a rule proposal regarding sugar content in the "National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program: Nutrition Standards for All Foods Sold in School as Required by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010."

"Cranberries are a special food. They offer a range of vital nutrients, and unlike some other healthy foods, they taste so good that young people are more than happy to eat them," concluded Kind.

He added, "I am pleased that the USDA has taken this important step, and I maintain that even more cranberries should be included in school breakfast and lunch programs."
