Secretary Vilsack was confirmed and started work this week. Below are a couple of press/blog accounts of some of what he has said on school nutrition this week:

 

"The secretary said Obama has stressed to him that USDA should provide
more nutritious food to children, but that he was also quite adamant
that USDA should help increase the supply of alternative fuel and
energy."

 

"New Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, discussed the difficult economic issues facing the country, discrimination at the USDA, and health care and nutrition issues yesterday (1/22) in a wide-ranging address to USDA employees. "The health care issue is a big issue…that’s why it’s important to promote a nutritious diet…and make sure children have access to healthy foods," he told a packed audience."
