This is the email I received from my legislator, Rep. Steve Sandstrom (haven’t heard from Sen. John Valentine, president of the Senate, yet). Write him at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him thanks and encouragement for his commitment to sponsor a bill to help our kids.
I would whole-heartedly support or sponsor such a bill. We do not eat junk-food in our own household and our kids are healthy and thin. I believe we need to push this issue, because childhood obesity is an epidemic.
I am actually in Sweden right now picking up my son who has been here playing hockey for the last two weeks. It is very noticeable that the kids and adults here are not obese and they eat healthy. We need to help the children in our state make good decisions for their own health.
Anything I can do to promote this and get it passed, I am willing to do.
I will be back in the States on Sunday and I will get in contact with you.
Please sign this GreenSmoothieGirl petition to Utah’s legislators and school officials, and encourage health-minded friends to do so, too!
