ABC “bachelorette” Ashley Hebert of Madawaska disagrees with Sen. Susan Collins’ stance in favor of keeping potatoes on the school lunch menu.

“‘Schoolchildren need healthy lunches — not fries every day,” Hebert, who studied dentistry at the University of Pennsylvania, tweeted this week. “Protect USDA’s school nutrition standards.’

Hebert’s tweet doesn’t directly criticize or even mention Collins, but the senator has taken the lead in the Senate in trying to force regulators to revisit the standards. She said last week that the standards should be based on how food is prepared, rather than the ingredients used.”
