Healthy kids grow up to be better killers?

Why is it important to provide healthy diets for kids in schools? Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has an answer--

"If we don't address this issue, we're going to have a shrinking number of young people who are qualified for military service, and when you have an all-volunteer military, you have to have a large pool to draw from," he said in an interview following his speech. "It's a national security issue, as well as an economic and health care issue."

I kinda like Tom, but seriously, can't we just say we want healthy kids because...we want healthy kids?
