One of the great things that happened when you flipped your calendar on July 1st was that that’s the day the state of Vermont began requiring state agencies to meet nutrition standards for the foods they sell and serve. And you’re part of the reason!
We advocated this past legislative session for legislation requiring nutrition standards for state government in vending, food service and institutions. We wanted state government to walk the walk so other businesses and organizations across Vermont would follow suit. The legislation passed, the governor signed it into law in May and the health department just released its nutrition standards last Friday!
Thanks for helping us make this a reality! Vermont is currently the only state to require nutrition standards in all three areas!
Please take a moment to thank the members of the Senate Health and Welfare and House Health Care Committees who gave their support to this effort. They were true champions and we couldn’t have done it without them. Take action at: https://yourethecure.org/aha/advocacy/actioncenter.aspx
Here’s to healthy eating in Vermont!
