Today, millions of kids across America are eating better school meals because of healthier lunch standards from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Thanks to the hard work of school chefs and food service workers around the country, 90 percent of our schools are now meeting modern nutrition standards -- and the USDA is working to provide greater flexibility and more assistance to help the remaining schools catch up.
As part of her Let's Move! initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama has helped raise awareness around the importance of our kids eating healthy and getting the nutrition they need -- and now she's taking to Twitter to answer your questions.
Tomorrow, Thursday, June 12, at 2:30 p.m. ET, join the First Lady for a Twitter Q&A on school nutrition and healthy school lunches on her Twitter handle, @FLOTUS.
Here are the details:
- Ask your questions now and during the live event on Twitter with the hashtag #LunchWithFLOTUS
- Follow the Q&A live through the @FLOTUS Twitter handle
- If you miss the live Q&A, the full session will be posted on WhiteHouse.gov and Storify.com/whitehouse
