Cooking up a healthy (out)look

Indian-American cookbook author, actress and model Padma Lakshmi, has written to US lawmakers seeking their support for healthy school lunches.

When Congress renews the Child Nutrition Act, please support legislation that will help schools serve healthy lunches — including fresh fruits, vegetable and low-fat, plant-based options,” Lakshmi, wrote in a letter to Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives.

What accounts for this sudden change of heart towards children?

Being a new mother and cookbook author, I am very passionate about creating nutritious and delicious meals for fans, friends, and family.

Well, we hope that her representation will be taken seriously enough.
