By MCNS Staff

She expressed her concerns after Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue signed a proclamation that relaxes standards for the upcoming school year in three key areas: whole grains, salt and milk.

While at a public health summit in Washington D.C., she stated “This is where you really have to look at motives, you know. You have to stop and think, why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you? And why is that a partisan issue? Why would that be political? What is going on?”

The agriculture rollback is part of a larger campaign by the Trump administration to rollback Obama era policies, most notably the Affordable Care Act.
