Tobey Maguire worries himself about unhealthy school lunches

First Emily Deschanel from "Bones" cared about chimpanzees and wrote a letter to Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.). And now…Tobey Maguire has caught on.

 "Spiderman" is a dad now so he’s highly concerned about food in schools.

He wrote –gasp! — letters to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) and Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) asking them to take a looksee at these lunch options and hopefully improve them by adding healthier options. 

“As a parent, I am contacting you because I am deeply concerned that unhealthy school lunches are contributing to our nation’s childhood obesity epidemic,” writes Mr. Maguire. “My wife and I just had our second child, so this issue is tremendously important to us…Let me ask you please to ensure the Child Nutrition Act provides more fruits, vegetables, and healthy vegetarian foods. Young people deserve healthful food, and I can’t imagine a better investment in the future of our country.” 

Here are his letters to Pelosi and Harkin. (They’re the exact same.)
